I have a team that works on one Qlik sense application.
I would like to implement version control in qlik sense, (git) but I have a problem that qlik sense application produce qvf files, witch are binary.
This is problem for 2 reasons.
- We can't work on same application at the same time : we can't merge at the end because we end up with different binary.
- We have even trouble with n applications, each for developer. The idea was, that each developer "create" own application, and the pull others from git, and copy paste new stuff. The problem is that with opening applications, you change binary, so you push changed app from others.
We know how to (badly and not user friendly) solve second one, but we still have problem with first.
Do any one have the same problems? Do anyone know libraby/extension for git?
Hi Marko, it's a common problem that we face too. What we do is just follow the QDF proposed solution to handle that, but in addition you can use Git LFS to handle your binary files (Gitlab has 10Gb free for that purpose)
