I’ve talked before about using Git with VBA and also about the importance of using source control and other tools for our work. Truthfully though, using source control with VBA is still hard. This is mostly because getting the code modules into and out of the VB Project is hard, and harder to do right. Well, you may have heard that there’s a new duck in town. It’s taken me about 6 months of spare time, but Rubberduck v1.4 not only has a source control COM library that you can use right in VBA to work with Git VBA repositories, but you can also now branch, commit, pull, push, and merge right from inside of the editor.
It’s been a rough morning here. I’ve just spent six hours trying to properly create a mock for the VBProject interface. There’s very little information out there about this, so I thought I’d take a moment to jot this down and save someone else the headache. For all the grief this gave me, the solution is amazing simple.
I’ve been fairly absent from this blog lately. I’ve been busy working on a new release of Rubberduck and, honestly, there are only so many hours in a day. More importantly, there are only so many concentrated thoughts to go around in 24 hours. So, I apologize for being gone for so long. I hope you can forgive me when you see the results. I’m really excited about our next release. There’s some really awesome things in there. You can download the pre-release now if you’re interested. There are a few kinks to work out, but things should be stable very soon.
To be truthful though, that project is the last thing I want to talk about right now. Rubberduck has become an obsession. There have been so many early mornings and late nights that I can’t possibly count them. There will be more. Many more. We’re only getting warmed up… and I’m going to talk about it anyway. It is an obsession after all. Like any addict, I just can’t let it go.
Have you ever wanted to properly unit test your VBA code or simply wished the VBA editor had a Task List window that picked up your Todo comments? The wait is over friends. It’s here.
