02 Version Control

Version control, also known as revision control and source control, is the management of changes to information. A version control system keeps track of software versions throughout development. A distributed version control system allows many developers to work on a given project without requiring that they maintain a connection to a common network.


We use Git for distributed LabVIEW code version control. Our code repositories are managed externally on a GitLab server and internally on a Git server.

In order to be able to work on our LabVIEW code, you need to follow the steps described in the setup section of our Git knowledge base:

If you only need a manual export of the contents of a repository on GitLab, you can simply download the source code instead of using git to clone it.
