Git hooks have been on my “to mess about with and learn a little some day” list for a while. It’s the old conundrum: I might use them if I knew what they could do, but I’m not going to learn about them until I’ve got a use for them. Chickens-and-eggs for developers.
Remember my blog post on “Multi-root workspaces in VSCode for AL Development“? If not – it might be interesting to read first, because this is in fact an “extension” (get it?) on it .. so you might say this blogpost “depends” on that one ;-).
I concluded the post with some scripts – and that’s the part I’d like to extend a bit – because I needed more functionality since latest blogpost. And I’d like to refer to these scripts again – and tell you a bit more on how they could make your life a bit easier as well .. .

I wasn’t really intending to write this post. If you want training materials for learning the basic concepts of Git then there is tonnes of great free content around on blogs and YouTube channels. I was going to share some thoughts about our branching strategy but thought I’d write a little about manipulating branches first.
This is part two of a series about using Git to manage your Business Central development. This time – rebasing. It seems that rebasing can be something of a daunting subject. It needn’t be. Let’s start with identifying the base of a branch before worrying about rebasing.
You might have figured – I’m a VSCode fanboy. One of many. You might remember the session I did on NAVTechDays 2017 (Rock ‘n Roll with VSCode), where I dove quite a bit into the possibilities this great tool comes with. But I didn’t talk about the concept of “Multi-root Workspaces”: an ability of VSCode for you to work on multiple “projects” at the same time, in one environment.
With my previous blog, I had explained how to configure CI/CD for Microsoft Dynamics Business Central. The only drawback when it comes to developing in VS Code Online is that it works with Base Operating System as Linux. Which implies that the ALC(Application Language Compiler) built for Windows has to also work on Linux but it doesn’t.
