  1. All development is done from the IBM i - single repository over the Profound.js modules folder (non-bare) where developers make individual commits from the same folder.
  2. All development is done locally and changes are pulled into the IBM i - remote repository hosted on cloud/local-network server where developers develop on their local machines and make commits to the remote repository. Some cloud services provide private repositories.

Option 1 - Develop on the IBM i

This option is the easiest to setup. Via pase:


When people are creating, deleting or modifying files, each individual should make commits to the files they change.

Option 2 - Develop Locally with a Cloud Repository

This option is best for distributed development. First, you will want to setup either a local-network repository or use a cloud hosting service such as GitHub or BitBucket.


This wlll create the git repository in a sub-folder within modules.

Pulling the changes onto your IBM i

  • Clone your repo within your Profound.js installed on your IBM i, with a final parameter of 'modules - which tells the clone to 'clone' into the modules folder: git clone modules
  • Use git pull every time you'd like to pull new commits down to your IBM i.
