Visual Studio 2015 CE and GitLab

Here is a small example of how you can use Visual Studio 2015 CE with Gitlab:

  1. Create a new project in GitLab and clone it to your local file system. Notice you will need the http link to your project in a later step.
  2. Open Visual Studio 2015 CE and create a new project in the cloned directory. VS 2015 CE will automatically detect the git version control.
  3. Go to the Team Explorer register tab and follow these steps:

    Next open the the Repository Settings by clicking on the combobox in the top area of the register card.
    vs2015_ce_git_2
    Go to the Remotes section and ente your GitLab projectlink from step 1.
    vs2015_ce_git_3
    Go to the Changes section and make a comment to the included files.

    If all is successfully configured you can now go to the Synchronization section and sync, fetch, pull or push your project.
