Setting up GitLive

This section will guide you in setting up GitLive for your organization or account.

Pre-requisites

In order to use GitLive, you are required to use a repository hosting service that we support. These are currently GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab and Azure DevOps.

If you are unfamiliar with repository hosting services please read Github’s help section in order to get familiar with it.

Clone any of your desired repositories and open them in your IDE.

As an administrator

As an Administrator, you need to grant access to the desired repositories you want to use the GitLive plugin/extension with. This requires installing the GitLive app on your organization level or account level.

Proceed to the setup guide for administrators to install the GitLive app on your repository hosting service.

After installing the GitLive app on your repository hosting service, ask your team members to install the plugin in their respective IDEs and authenticate with GitLive as shown in the setup guide for team members.

As a team member

Given that the Admin of your repository has followed the instructions as in the setup guide for administrators, an individual team member needs to authenticate with his repository hosting service. Open the cloned repository in your IDE and authenticate with your repository hosting service as demonstrated in the setup guide for team members.
