Environment branching


Environment branching is a strategy in software development where different stages of the development lifecycle are segregated into separate environments. This approach enables developers to work, test, and deploy their code in isolated settings, ensuring stability and continuity across the development process.



  1. Setup Environments: Establish distinct environments, typically including development, testing, staging, and production.
  2. Code Promotion: Move code through these environments, ensuring it passes each stage's criteria before moving to the next.
  3. Environment-Specific Configurations: Configure each environment according to its purpose and requirements.
