Chapter 4. Getting Started with Version Control

The reasons for using version control on your Drupal projects are several and various, and have only recently become clear to me as I’ve started working with Drush and Git. Although adding version control to your workflow can be daunting at first, the benefits far outweigh the initial annoyances. Consider this:

  • In a recent project, while attempting to theme complex navigation on a Drupal 7 prototype, I found myself messing things up in a bad, bad way, shortly before stakeholders were supposed to look at the site. Because we had Git installed on our server, I was able to roll back to the former, not messed-up menu and leave it there while we focused on other priorities—without having to make a frantic phone call to our developer.
