Some notes/links on Git-TF: the GIT/TFS bridge

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/06/05

TFS 2012 Update 2 and up can do GIT or TFS (now called TFVC for Team Server Version Control). It was improved in TFS 2013, but still it leaves two small problems:

  1. It cannot host the same repository as both GIT and TFVC.
  2. It cannot conver from GIT to TFVC or back.

Luckily there are two tools that can help: GIT TF and GIT TFS.

GIT TF  (now forked on github a few times) is a way to bridge TFS and GIT. It is different from GIT TFS (that only runs on Windows, it is provided by Microsoft).

You can use both for instance to move GIT to/from TFS, or to compare or leverage GIT against TFS Express and Team Foundation Service which are both free for up to 5 developers. A few notes and some more links:

GIT-TFS: is much faster, and requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 runtime DLLs (which are part of the Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center)
