Repository management tools

  • Builder is a tool that makes it possible to ship the same scripts across projects in a Node.js monorepo. For example, share build and testing scripts across projects.
  • FBShipIt is a library written in Hack for copying commits from one repository to another.
  • adeira/shipit is a simplified JavaScript port of FBShipIt.
  • Lank is a tool that links packages together in a Node.js monorepo using automatic configuration of NODE_PATH instead of symlinks. Lank also allows you to run the same commands across all (or subsets of all) packages.

  • wsrun allows running a command in each package of a Yarn workspaces monorepo.
  • meta is a tool for managing multi-project systems and libraries. It answers the conundrum of choosing between a mono repo or many repos by saying "both", with a meta repo.

Development process tools

Code reviews

  • Pull Review Hubot plugin to automate pull reviews with lots of configuration options.
  • Rietveld is a code review tool by Google used by Chromium.
  • API Extractor is used to detect and review API signatures for TypeScript libraries, and also for publishing a multi-package API reference.

Development Workflows

  • Trunk Based Development, a source-control branching model, where developers collaborate on code in a single branch called ‘trunk’, resist any pressure to create other long-lived development branches by employing documented techniques. They therefore avoid merge hell, do not break the build, and live happily ever after.
  • Branch By Abstraction, is a set-piece technique to effect a ‘longer to complete’ change in the trunk.
