Version control is very useful to manage a project in better conditions. Especially if tou are working in a big team or in a complex project. The world of programming is a vast one, with projects to handle, tasks to manage, applications to make and a whole lot of things that are tied in between. Many applications have been created to make the art of programming a rather seamless one, the tools and resources specifically made for programmers are endless and one of such great tool is Gource.
You will be able to view an intuitive visual representation, in the tree mode. It is an application that enables you make a graphical representation of the trees and with the root of the project at the centre of the animation. This program brings a beautiful view of the projects being handled with the contribution of each developer duly recorded.
As earlier stated, the beginning of the project can be seen to be the root and then the files that are brought in during a project are seen as leaves. For each time a developer contributes to the progress of the ongoing project, it appears on the animation and the exact spot the contribution was made. This program truly makes work all the more fun and very interesting, you do not have to use the same old boring interface you have always known rather you can spice up the view you have with this awesome application. A brilliant idea that is useful for developers.
