I understand from reading some other threads that the GitHub integration was really designed more as a code collaboration mechanism and not as a version control distribution system. Even though GitHub itself is designed as a version control system.
That being said, is the benefit of doing the GitHub integration within the IDE solely to allow for code collaboration?
Updating code thru the integration never seems to work well for me. When trying to select the “Update from Repo” button within the IDE I see several instances of “SmartThingsPublic (master)” since that is the name of nearly everyone’s repositories. And from what I understand name changes are done by the owner only and done within GitHub.
This mentions that “…various SmartApps or Device Handlers are color-coded differently in the IDE. Each name will be color-coded differently depending on its state in the GitHub repository”
I have never seen this be the case. The colors of anything within my smartapps or device handlers within the IDE are always the same color even if there has been an update to the code by the developer.
Is there some setting I missed? I literally have reread that doc 20 times and still cannot figure it out.
