The SEAS Code Repository is a convenient and powerful graphical tool for managing git repositories, projects, and allowing team to collaborate and publish their development work. Source management is an important part of technical work, and we hope to promote its integration in research and courses at SEAS.

To use the service, you'll need a rudimentary knowledge of the GIT source control tool; for this, refer to our

For a super-quick start, just follow this link:

Login using your SEAS or FAS username and password, create a project, and poke around. The site documents much of the steps needed to make use of the service, and for inviting others others to collaborate.

Other Source Code Repository Services

Note: The primary source code repository supported in SEAS is the code.seas (git based) repository described above. It is simple and self-enabling. Please consider using it.

For the Subversion source management tool, we offer:

which is a centralized Subversion repository server for SEAS affiliates. Documentation for this service can be found here: Academic Computing Subversion service


Now replaced by the SEAS Code Repository, we continue to offer the Gitosis-based service, use with the GIT code management tool.


Documentation for this service is here: Gitosis source code management.

We currently aren't promoting new accounts on this service, but to request a set of repositories on, please email Once this initial setup is done, a lab or course can manage access to repositories independently.
