What's the take on using GitLab for locking the files?

Go to solution

Does any one uses Gitlab or anyother client for LabVIEW project to lock certain files, just like we have an option in traditional TFS? What's the take?

Depends on group's workflow.  I believe locking files in source code control is generally not done any more.  This is more of a CVS thing.

What is the use case for locking? What are you trying to achieve?


If you are trying to avoid 2 people working on the same file at the same time, better modularity and communication can solve that problem and provide a lot of other benefits.
