Git with Dynamics ax 2012

Recently I explored GIT as source control tool. As per work with Microsoft Technologies I worked with TFS and Source save.  In Dynamics Ax 2012 context I found AX2GIT on codeplex and





I download ax2git zip. After extraction I found  XPO.



So I decided first to download its perquisites. i.e. Git and tortoise for Git. I used following links

Git from   http://msysgit.github.io/


Tortoise Git from http://tortoisegit.org/


After Installing tortoise and Git, windows right click popup menu shows me  git and tortoise options as follow




To check git works, I create a new folder and create Git Repository there by windows right click popup menu.


Following popup appeared


After click on ok, I found following pop up to show success message




Now I opened Dynamics ax and import the ax2GIt.xpo




Import it, it overwrite some Ax artifacts.  When Xpo successfully imported, right click on any node in AOT => add-ins have Git menu.







Currently Ax2Git support only export.

I opened one of my existing project and export it GIT options. Right click on project node when project open with all its detail. And click on add-ins=>Git=> Export AOT selection.



And click on Export AOT selection

welcome to the world of git
