Bitbucket has just made one of the key strengths of Git – branching – accessible to all users, new or experienced. From the repository header, you can now quickly create a branch and take advantage of feature-based workflows that Git opens up.
In a single click, Bitbucket will create a new branch for you with the option to choose where you want to branch from.
Bitbucket even lets you check out your branch in SourceTree, Atlassian’s free Git client for Mac and Windows, so you can start working on your code faster without having to use the command line.
Branches at a glance
Visualizing branches has never been easier. Quickly identify outstanding work that needs to be merged, or check how up to date your working branch is from the default branch (e.g. master) with the Behind/Ahead function
You can do common tasks such as deleting branches, creating pull requests, or clean up any stale or short-lived branches that may be clogging up your repository with the Delete branch feature. If you’re looking for more details, you can even drill into your branches and commits with branch information available on the branch details view. Organizing branches has never been easier!
