Hi Folks! Currently I am trying to find out how geogig works if...
I want to use a Postgis database as the origin repo
Clone that to a local repo
edit data local As far as I am Aware I still need connection to the database...there is no possibility to edit disconnected/distributed with the postgres backend, isn't it?
There is, just like with GitHub you would eventually need to push data from one of your disconnected/distributed apps back to the origin repo.
@jodygarnett But how is the (Geo)datastore implemented locally then if there is not Postgres instance on the local machine? If I understand it right I have to Export to any Format from the cloned repo...edit for example in QGIS and then Reimport to the repo? Is this a suitable way of disconnected editing? Is this the only way?
You can choose what kind of storage to use locally.
Repo can use several different kinds of storage.
Hi all, I've got a PR here to upgrade GeoGig to the latest JTS: locationtech/geogig#446
Hi folks - I'm new to geogig but used to git, and I'm testing out geogig in an attempt to help some qgis users who aren't used to version control. One thing I find hard to explain to people are branches and they often get lost on a branch or detached state - for git, I usually recommend running git log with something like --graph --decorate --all to get an overview of where they are. I've been looking around in the manual for any similar functionality in geogig, but have been unable to find any - any suggestions? Is there something like gitk for geogig? Thanks!
Hi James, unfortunately no. reflog is on the todo list but given other pressing concerns it'd be a while until it's implemented. log --graph I'd say is doable but I don't see anyone taking the time to implement the VT output. We're currently working on a new WEB API and Qgis plugin, and also a JavaFX desktop client. I'd need to check when that'd open for general testing, I hope soon
Hi Gabriel, I assume that message was for me :) Thanks for the reply. I understand - sounds like you have plenty of stuff on your plate. I'm looking forward to trying out the Qgis plugin and desktop client once they're open for the public. That would probably be great help to those who aren't used to working with a terminal. Looking forward to seeing how GeoGig evolves, good luck to you.
can geogig store Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) ?
