We’re excited to announce that most of the Modus projects have been migrated from Bitbucket to GitHub.

Check GitHub for our available projects.

There are many benefits to having our projects code hosted on GitHub, for example:

  • GitHub Issues All open issues (bug reports/feature requests etc) have been migrated from our Jira boards to their respective projects.
  • GitHub Actions allows us to automate all parts of our development workflow including testing all of our code and deploying changes. We’re also using GitHub Actions to automate assigning issues and Pull Requests to users and will setup automation for our internal project boards.
  • GitHub’s integration with Netlify Deploy Previews automatically creates unique URLs so we can review and test site changes before pushing to production.
  • GitHub Advanced Security which provides us with code scanning (finds any potential security vulnerabilities and coding errors in your code), secret scanning (Detect secrets, for example keys and tokens, that have been checked into the repository - as well as automated dependency alerts to fix security issues.
  • Improved Discoverability - now our projects are on the world’s biggest development platform, with many of them open-source making it easier for users to contribute.
  • And the GitHub Mobile app is useful for checking on issues when you’re away from your computer!

In the future we plan to setup Slack integration to get automated notifications of build statuses and pull request reviews right from Slack too!
