Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.

    Can you elaborate more on what is your particular pain point about source control ? I agree that there are various minor defect that need to be ironed out but most part work as they are supposed to.

    As for documentation, I think that the community can help in this area. There use to be a blog / website about source control in Notes / Domino but I could not find it anymore. Perhaps something similar can be setup ?

    I would bring it a step further and provide a complete CICD chain for development. I want to create / update NSF's from code.

    That video is really old. a lot has changed. Swiper should be integrated. Although headless designer has been published about by Jesse gallegher, (NSF ODP Tooling), the solution is not complete or easy to use.

    Source control is a must in modern development - but is doesn't work properly in Lotus Notes

    • Doesn't work with DXL (currently you must enable 'Use Binary DXL for source control options' for everything to work)
    • Automatic import/export sometimes goes into an infinite loop
    • Don't include meta data - a recompile all shouldn't mark all files as modified in your source control
