Git is at the core of Netlify’s workflow. When you push changes to your site’s Git repository, Netlify detects your changes and triggers automated deploys, functions, and more across our global CDN.
# Git and Netlify
Netlify builds on Git to optimize the developer workflow and improve productivity.
For example, you can configure continuous deployment with Netlify so that every
git push from your local Git repository triggers a new Deploy Preview.
You can also keep your Git-centric workflow on the command line with the Netlify CLI. Learn more about Netlify CLI or explore how to create a site from a template using Netlify CLI.
To learn more about how Netlify optimizes development around the Git workflow, check out this blog post on Netlify’s Git-centric workflow.
# Git provider support
Git providers offer hosting for Git repositories. Using the Netlify UI, you can connect your site’s repository to Netlify from these Git providers:
- Azure DevOps
For set up guidance and repository permissions requirements that are more specific for each Git provider, check out our docs on repository permissions and linking.
For general guidance on how to set up your site with Netlify from a Git repository, check out how to add a new site. You can also start a site or app from Netlify templates. As you set up your site, you can configure build settings as needed, such as your build command and the directory in your repository to deploy.
