Using git with z/OS wouldn’t be possible without Rocket (or it would be more challenging).
Using git with ISPF is now a reality. I’ve been working with Henri Kuiper on an ISPF application called zigi - z/OS ISPF Git Interface. At this point, it is still a work in progress but it is usable. Among the things that you will find are:
- It’s a full ISPF native application
- ISPF statistics for managed partitioned dataset members are retained
- Binary datasets (e.g. load modules, object decks) are not supported at this time
Check it out at https://zigi.rocks/
And if you’d like to participate please join the fun.
Note: zigi does not support just any git repository - for a repository to be used by zigi the repository must be created by zigi. This could change in the future but there are valid reason for this.
