Introducing Bit organizations for better collaboration around private and open source components.
This week we’re introducing Bit organizations which help you collaborate and manage group-owned Scopes and components.
Many developers collaborate around Bit Scopes containing components for their team’s or organization’s projects. With Bit organizations, these Scopes can now be grouped together under an organization account and managed with a unified dashboard and organization-level permissions.
Just like Bit Scopes, organizations are free for open source.
Organizations helps organizing your team’s code and manage it, and also makes it more discoverable for members of the organization.
The organization dashboard provides information on all Scopes managed in your org. so you can immediately learn which Scopes are available for your company and make sure they are all kept up-to-date and made accessible for developers who needs them.
Increasing discoverability helps the developers in your organization find the components they need, collaborate and build new features and products faster, using the building blocks your organization already have.
Organizations help you centralize the management of your team’s Scopes and control permissions for members of your organization.
Organization members can create Scopes within the organization and be invited to collaborate on Scopes created by others in the organization.
Organization admins can manage permissions for members and curate the organization’s dashboard. The admins have owner permissions to manage (create, update or remove) all Scopes created within the organization.
Organization admins can invite new members to join the organization.
Scopes created within the organization can still be managed by their owners, as well as the organization admins, so that different teams can effectively collaborate and manage their work within the organization.
Centralizing the management of your organization’s Scopes and permissions while enabling teams within the organization to work independently enables you to keep control without slowing down your development using Bit.
Just like Scopes, organizations are designed for both teams working on private code as well as open source code.
Every developer can create a free organization for open source code to manage, host and collaborate on components which are public and available to the community.
You can also open-source a specific Scope in a private organization, so that your organization can leverage Bit to easily share components and parts of your Git repositories with the community without refactoring anything.
To create a new organization, click your user profile icon in the header.
As the drop-down menu opens, select “create new organization”. You can also create an organization via the top right part of your user dashboard.
Then, choose a name for your organization and, if working on a private plane, choose privacy settings and create the organization. That’s it.
To transform an existing user account into an organization contact us directly.
By organizing the building blocks of your organization’s codebase you can also refine actionable insights ranging from who uses which component in which projects to code duplications, component performance and much more.
Our near-future roadmap includes such insights in the organization’s dashboard so that you can speed and improve the way you build new features and products using your best components. Other features, from a smart invite system to more multi-layered permission management are also planned.
