Can anyone suggest a version control system for Web Designers?

almost 4 years ago from

I'm on a team of web designers who are doing coding in html, css, and javascript. We work on prototypes and then hand them off to developers and at times, we are working on the same product but on different pages of the site.

Currently, we are manually merging our code and can get to be really difficult. None of us know git or command line, although it's possible that we could take the time to learn. Two of us are on Mac and one is on Windows. We are all very visual people, so with that in mind can anyone recommend a version control solution for us?

    If its code, then Git would be the easiest, most universally accepted way.

    Have you considered breaking out your process though. I think a better way, for scale, would be to have a separate library for things like colors, fonts, and if your product is built this way, components that could be shared by the designers and developers and separate from both the prototype and production repositories.

    Lets just say this is a React project for simplicity's sake. You could have a component library that's just things like buttons, inputs, etc, with hooks for the functional javascript, but not in built for it. You can change whatever properties of your components, and when those changes are merged into your master, they could be programmatically imported into any other sub project.

    I suggest you to use SVN, Git, Mercurial, Monotone Cross-platform and easy to use. The compare tool is one of the best I've seen You can see all these on https://www.reecoupons.com/view/geekbuying
