Azure DevOps vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
Developers describe Azure DevOps as "Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software". Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support. On the other hand, SourceTree is detailed as "A free Git GUI client for Windows and macOS". Use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.
Azure DevOps belongs to "Project Management" category of the tech stack, while SourceTree can be primarily classified under "Source Code Management Desktop Apps".
Some of the features offered by Azure DevOps are:
- Agile Tools: kanban boards, backlogs, scrum boards
- Reporting: dashboards, widgets, Power BI
- Git: free private repositories, pull requests
On the other hand, SourceTree provides the following key features:
- Full-powered DVCS
- Create, clone, commit, push, pull, merge, and more are all just a click away.
- Review your outgoing and incoming changesets, cherry-pick between branches, patch handling, rebase, stash, shelve, and much more.
"Complete and powerful" is the top reason why over 11 developers like Azure DevOps, while over 199 developers mention "Visual history and branch view" as the leading cause for choosing SourceTree.
According to the StackShare community, SourceTree has a broader approval, being mentioned in 618 company stacks & 415 developers stacks; compared to Azure DevOps, which is listed in 79 company stacks and 68 developer stacks.
I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.
It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.
