Why use source control for SuiteScript?

After one of your developers deploys code which overcharges customers by thousands every day; after a full release of code is lost because a developer's hard drive dies; after a critical bug fix is lost, having been overwritten by an unwitting third party; after portions of an emergency fix cannot be deployed to a client because code was left undeployed on a laptop which is still sitting in the office after-hours; after any - or all - of these happen to you, then you will know your team desperately needs source control for their SuiteScript projects.

Source control (or version control) allows developers to track the incremental changes they make to their source code every day and save those changes on a remote server for access from anywhere.

  • Need to know what changes were deployed last week?
  • Need to compare what was written with what is deployed?
  • Need to know the status of the code for a particular task?
  • Need your developers to code from any machine, any location?
  • Need your developers to stop stepping on each other?

Surprise! The answer for all those questions is a streamlined, effective source control strategy.
