I’ve been reading GitLab Repository Management lately [disclaimer: courtesy of packtpub]. It’s a nice book, well organised and easy to follow instructions to setup your environment, plus some basic details for a complete workflow. The book is very nice and well worth it. If I had to choose weak points I would say:
- More examples. Never enough of these.
- More on Hooks. I’m a bit biased here, ok. I’ve had some troubles with post-receive hook (somewhere between gitlab 4 and 6 the default post-receive hook was lost in newly created repos, don’t know who to blame here, but I expected the book to acknowledge the fact, at least, when mentioning the post-receive hook).
- More info on sidekiq. Sorry, any info on background processes, there is none.
As I said, the book is very worth reading. Good work and thanx for sending the book for review!
