Best practices: Share one project in Web IDE with 2 users


are there any best practices to share a project (with version control / change comparison / etc.) in SAP Web IDE?

Or further: what possibilities do I have?


I think I don't want to use GitHub

The best would be if we can deploy to NetWeaver and check for changes everytime we deploy there.

    Hi Dominik,

    The best way is to use HCP Git repositories!

    For example if you have an application in your Web IDE workspace you wish to share with your colleagues, simply deploy it to HCP (right-click -> Deploy -> Deploy to SAP HANA Cloud Platform), you can give it a version and deploy it. Then on HCP a Git repository is created for you and you can share it with your colleagues, who can then clone it in their Web IDE and commit and push their changes.

    In the application's page on your HCP cockpit under HTML5 Applications it is really easy to see all the commits and versions of this app.

    More information can be found on Web IDE's documentation:

    Hope this helps,

    hi Dominik,

    ABAP won't provide you such.. and as Michal said, you have a Git alternative for HCP but not for On-Premise.

    Alternatively, you could use CVS / SVN or some other source control system from the WebIDE workspace directly - however Git seems to be best so far so I'm not too sure why you don't want to use it.
