Bitbucket vs Neovim: What are the differences?
Bitbucket: One place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private repositories. Bitbucket gives teams one place to plan projects, collaborate on code, test and deploy, all with free private Git repositories. Teams choose Bitbucket because it has a superior Jira integration, built-in CI/CD, & is free for up to 5 users; Neovim: Vim's rebirth for the 21st century. Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to: simplify maintenance and encourage contributions, split the work between multiple developers, enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source, and improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture.
Bitbucket belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Neovim can be primarily classified under "Text Editor".
Some of the features offered by Bitbucket are:
- Unlimited private repositories, charged per user
- Best-in-class Jira integration
- Built-in CI/CD
On the other hand, Neovim provides the following key features:
- More powerful plugins
- Better GUI architecture
- First-class support for embedding
"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider Bitbucket over the competitors, whereas "Modern and more powerful Vim" was stated as the key factor in picking Neovim.
Neovim is an open source tool with 32K GitHub stars and 2.33K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Neovim's open source repository on GitHub.
PayPal, Salesforce, and CircleCI are some of the popular companies that use Bitbucket, whereas Neovim is used by MAK IT, Finciero, and Focus21 Inc..

Do you review your Pull/Merge Request before assigning Reviewers?
If you work in a team opening a Pull Request (or Merge Request) looks appropriate. However, have you ever thought about opening a Pull/Merge Request when working by yourself? Here's a checklist of things you can review in your own:
- Pick the correct target branch
- Make Drafts explicit
- Name things properly
- Ask help for tools
- Remove the noise
- Fetch necessary data
- Understand Mergeability
- Pass the message
- Add screenshots
- Be found in the future
- Comment inline in your changes

What else do you review before asking for code review?
One of the magic tricks git performs is the ability to rewrite log history. You can do it in many ways, but
git rebase -i is the one I most use. With this command, It’s possible to switch commits order, remove a commit, squash two or more commits, or edit, for instance.
It’s particularly useful to run it before opening a pull request. It allows developers to “clean up” the mess and organize commits before submitting to review. If you follow the practice 3 and 4, then the list of commits should look very similar to a task list. It should reveal the rationale you had, telling the story of how you end up with that final code.
