What is Plastic SCM?

Plastic SCM is a distributed version control designed for big projects. It excels on branching and merging, graphical user interfaces, and can also deal with large files and even file-locking (great for game devs). It includes "semantic" features like refactor detection to ease diffing complex refactors.
Plastic SCM is a tool in the Version Control System category of a tech stack.

I use Plastic SCM because its GUI is way more intuitive than any other alternative. Its merge engine allows me to stop worrying about conflicts coming from other people and the built-in semantic capabilities are just a delight. On top of that, the Branch Explorer is definitely something that improves my productivity every day, showing me a lot on information in an intuitive way.

I use Plastic SCM because I can handle, via Gluon, non-text or non-code assets in the same repo as the programmers I work with, regardless of the size, if I have to lock those or files or anything. It is a point and click interface that keeps version control for me in the background will keeping me away from all its complexities. It's the perfect #VersionControlSystem to do distributed or centralized version control when you don't like any of those.

Plastic SCM is built using .NET, C# and Mono. In Product we decided to go for Amplitude and Segment to track usage and monitor activation as well as Intercom to communicate news, updates and tips. The reasons to pick all of those are pretty similar: scalability and ease of use.

Plastic SCM Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Plastic SCM?
Git
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.
Perforce
Visibility, access control, workflow and code management for Git environments. Flexibility of collaborating on the same codebase and code reviews using any combination of Perforce and Git workflows and tools without compromise.
SVN (Subversion)
Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.
Mercurial
Mercurial is dedicated to speed and efficiency with a sane user interface. It is written in Python. Mercurial's implementation and data structures are designed to be fast. You can generate diffs between revisions, or jump back in time within seconds.
Magit
It is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package. It aspires to be a complete Git porcelain. While we cannot (yet) claim that it wraps and improves upon each and every Git command, it is complete enough to allow even experienced Git users to perform almost all of their daily version control tasks directly from within Emacs. While many fine Git clients exist, only deserve to be called porcelains.
