Version Control Systems(VCS) are a category of software tools which help a software team manage changes to source code over time. They combine the repository of project files with a history of all the code changes. Also, they provide making it easy to edit and understand the code over time.
When a new project starts, the main question is “Which version control system is right for the project; Git or SVN?”
Git is a source code management and distributed revision control system. SVN is a revision control and software versioning system.
An important thing is that not all version control systems fit all projects and teams. The best method changes depending on the details of projects and teams. That’s why the answer to the question is essential for the process and the result of the project.
SVN, known as Subversion or Apache Subversion, represent the most popular centralized version control system. A centralized system stores all files and historical data on a central server. When developers commit their changes, the changes directly are committed to the central server repository.
SVN has a global revision number, it is a source code’s snapshot.
Unlike SVN, Git provides multiple repositories: a central repository and a series of local repositories; distributed . Those local repositories are the copies of the central repository with an entire history of change.
It can be said that the Git workflow is similar SVN but it has a local repository on the local machine. After the work on your local branch and if everything is well, the code is ready to commit to the local main branch first. Then, the main branch pushes from the local repository to the central repository.
