Version control, collaboration and open-source made easy
Anvil’s new GitHub integration is here to make development and collaboration more efficient than ever by allowing you to keep your Anvil app’s source code in a GitHub repository. Whether you’re collaborating with teammates or on open-source projects, you can store your source code on GitHub, make pull requests and use all of GitHub’s version control and collaboration tools. You don’t need to be a Git expert to collaborate using GitHub: Anvil takes care of keeping your app and GitHub repository in sync.

Streamlined development and collaboration
The Anvil GitHub integration fits neatly into your workflow. On Anvil’s Business Plan and above, you can create private repositories to store and manage Anvil code with the rest of your company’s codebase. Open issues, create pull requests, review changes and manage conflicts within GitHub. Anvil’s built-in version control tab lets you manage your repository and keep track of code changes from within your app.
Create and contribute to open-source projects
All Anvil users can connect to public repositories for free, so you can create and contribute to open-source projects. Publish your Anvil code on GitHub and share it with other Anvil developers, or open pull requests in other repositories to contribute to Anvil community projects. Show off your Anvil code on your GitHub profile and build a portfolio of your Anvil projects.
How does it work?
To get started with the GitHub integration, you’ll need to either save an app to a new GitHub repository or clone an existing repository into Anvil. No need to be a pro at Git to get started: all your changes will automatically be pushed to the repository, and other developers’ changes will show up live in your app.
Want to use Git but don’t want to use GitHub? No problem. Anvil supports other Git remotes as well.
