Git is an association of it's own, if repl.it were to add a cli for git they would have to ask and get git's approval, which is also a huge and long process, so it's unlike that will happen.

He1ios (4)

@JosephSanthosh okay just really wanted it

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Same here! A combination of Git and Repl.it would be so cool and useful. @He1ios

Coder100 (8398)

um they do have git..
Hit ctrl+shift+s and type in:

git commit -m "hi"

@He1ios

JosephSanthosh (1181)

That's not part of cli though which was the question. @Coder100

Coder100 (8398)

yes it is, it's part of the shell, which is a CLI if you forgot @JosephSanthosh

Coder100 (8398)

where else would you use git smh @JosephSanthosh

Coder100 (8398)

Bruh do you even know what git is smh @JosephSanthosh

Coder100 (8398)

And getting git's approval? It's open source! Repl.it is already using it behind the scenes with repl from repo @JosephSanthosh

SixBeeps (3004)

@Coder100 @JosephSanthosh You both know they're talking about GitHub, not Git, correct? gh != git

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Smh, git is an association, since repl.it already has a cli for git apparently, that means repl.it has already received git's approval. Do you know what is business, to have a product of another company in yours you need to have their approval or that will be copyright! The code which people put in github is open source, not the company. @Coder100

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Exactly!!! That's why I'm just like wondering what is @Coder100 saying, pretty off topic! Thanks @SixBeeps

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh I'm wondering what you're saying as well. You don't need Git's approval because 1.) They're not associated in any way to GitHub, and 2.) They're an open-source group?!

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh Git is in no way a business.

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Yes and github uses git, there for git is a business under github!

So git and github have ties with each other to use their softwares and/or products.

@SixBeeps

JosephSanthosh (1181)

@SixBeeps @Coder100 Sorry @He1ios for the spam you have been receiving!

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh My Minecraft mod that I made uses Java, so therefore I must own Java!

JosephSanthosh (1181)

You use Java, so you're the audience/customers of Java. But if you made a company and you want Java to be a code in your company for people to use, then you have to have ties with Java. That is why there aren't so many IDE's. Aren't you a college student? Shouldn't you be knowing this? @SixBeeps

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh
Companies need not say a single word to Oracle.


And aren't you a Stanford student? Shouldn't you know how licenses work?

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Haha! I am taking Stanford courses, not necessarily a student. Btw I'm in High School not college. Did you not see the Must in the picture you sent? In order to use the Can section you have to do the Must section.
@SixBeeps

@JosephSanthosh GitHub has issued a public license which grants that approval. See here: https://github.com/cli/cli/blob/trunk/LICENSE

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh Yeah, as long as you do the must you can do the can. No "ties" with Oracle or anything.
Also GG on taking college courses already. Kinda wish I could have done that.

SixBeeps (3004)

@wh0 (Perms of the MIT license for future reference)

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Yeah that's what I meant! Thanks! Well at least you're doing well in college! I'm barely able to survive in my first year of high school! @SixBeeps

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh Oh you're on your first year of HS. Good luck, and don't worry, you'll find out everything in time.

SixBeeps (3004)

@JosephSanthosh Btw, sorry for arguing. I just had my phone break on me so I ended up releasing my anger on you.

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Thank you so much! Sorry for like arguing back, I'm in debates so I barely notice when I'm arguing! Thank you once again and have a great day. @SixBeeps

JosephSanthosh (1181)

MANNNNNN, THAT IS THE MOST LIT ANIMATION I'VE EVER SEEN! GREAT JOB! I was low-key expecting a rick roll. That was beautiful @SixBeeps. @Coder100 @wh0

Wait I’m confused, why would git need to get involved? They already approved the software for GitHub so wouldn’t the decision be GitHub’s? And isn’t the CLI open for anyone to [email protected]

CodeLongAndPros (1354)

@JosephSanthosh “git’s approval” well Git is open source, so…
And if replit asked, Linus would probably shoot it down.

CodeLongAndPros (1354)

@agent9002 Git is made by Linus Torvalds. GitHub hosts Git remote “storage”.

AstOwOlfo (208)

Okay but how are they relevant here? @CodeLongAndPros

CodeLongAndPros (1354)

@agent9002 Because JosephSanthosh is saying “Microsoft owns git”

AstOwOlfo (208)

yeah but i didnt say microsoft owns git, u tagged me specifically for that @CodeLongAndPros

CodeLongAndPros (1354)

@agent9002
More properly:

Wait I’m confused, why would git need to get involved? They already approved the software for GitHub so wouldn’t the decision be GitHub’s? And isn’t the CLI open for anyone to [email protected]

“Approved the use of”

AstOwOlfo (208)

uh its just a joke bro there isnt rlly any reason for it @CodeLongAndPros

AstOwOlfo (208)

looks like u deleted some msgs that claimed microsoft owned github? @JosephSanthosh

JosephSanthosh (1181)

me? what no? Go and watch @SixBeeps youtube video of this debate. @agent9002

AstOwOlfo (208)

ye but this was afterwards, no? @JosephSanthosh

CodeLongAndPros (1354)

@JosephSanthosh You do know Miscorosft own Github

AstOwOlfo (208)

ugh look, this is going nowhere, there's no point discussing it anymore tbh @CodeLongAndPros

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Ye, i know that, but like how is that related to git? @CodeLongAndPros

JosephSanthosh (1181)

Yea, the poor person who created this post. @agent9002 @CodeLongAndPros Did u guys see @SixBeeps youtube video about this?

He1ios (4)

@JosephSanthosh @agent9002 @Coder100 I personally support joseph because github uses git to collab with it's repositories so technically github does own git because they made it for their repositories's commits

AstOwOlfo (208)

No, I don’t think so. Git’s service can be used commercially and they already gave the rights to GitHub to produce that software so Git can be ignored in this case. Responsibility belongs to GitHub which I’m 99% sure are providing the CLI to businesses at no charge but I’d have to double check their stance on it.

The argument with Java and Oracle that was made was a good anecdote for this.
@He1ios

He1ios (4)

@agent9002 yes but didn't github start git which means they have the best claim to own git @JosephSanthosh what do u think?

AstOwOlfo (208)

How is Git relevant? They distribute their software freely. The code is open-source, anyone can use and modify it without needing any additional permission. Directly from their website: Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git's permission is not relevant at all here, after reading more into it, what Joseph is saying is not exactly correct. @He1ios

He1ios (4)

@agent9002 So... this went from wanting git cli to this lol

JosephSanthosh (1181)

So sorry about this mess bro. @He1ios
