Help your development team collaborate.
Kiln helps developers work together. Kiln provides the tools you need to ensure that developers can stay productive and communicate about your code – within the code itself. Simple navigation through the changes in your project’s code helps developers understand and manage changes.
Branch, clone, push, or pull with a simple click.
Branch and merge with ease.
Distributed version control systems (DVCSs) like Git make branching and merging practically painless. Your developers can make changes to the code — wherever they need to — and merge back changes in a sane way. Kiln makes it easy to get started with distributed version control.
Avoid code merging nightmares — with Git, Mercurial and Kiln.
You can keep your code secure — with Kiln.
Kiln provides repository access via either SSH or HTTPS to help keep your pushes private.
Permissions management helps ensure that repositories and code stays secure and accessible to authorized team members only. Kiln makes it easy to manage your repository permissions at the group and user level. Use repository permissions to prevent premature release of changes that are not quite ready.
From secure protocols to permission management, Kiln helps you keep your code secure.
