GitHub and Dart overview

Engineering teams integrate Dart with GitHub to enable convenient automated linking between Dart tasks and GitHub PRs and branches. The integration can be used to set up custom rules and configurations for how Dart tasks behave when their linked Github issues are updated, merged, or deployed.

What is GitHub?

GitHub is a platform that enables developers to collaborate on software development. It uses Git software to provide distributed version control for software projects. In addition to version control GitHub also provides repositories to store files, continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD), various security tools, and social and community-building features. GitHub is used widely by individual developers, open-source communities, and even enterprises to build and manage their software projects. GitHub was acquired by Microsoft in 2018 where it is currently a subsidiary.

Dart GitHub integration setup

To set up the integration first go the GitHub integration page in settings and click the button to link Dart and Github. Follow through all the setup instructions and permissions. This integration works based on Dart task IDs in branch names. You can get the appropriate branch name for any task by clicking the branch icon in that task's header.

After enabling the integration, choose on the first toggle whether you want to enable link comments which will automatically comment on pull requests with a link to the corresponding task. Then choose on the second toggle whether to automatically assign unassigned tasks to whoever copies the branch link. Finally, below the toggles configure which events in GitHub will cause updates and what status they correspond to.
