Salesforce is a key cloud application that the AutoRABIT tool works with in order to build a successful CI/CD pipeline. Therefore, whether you are in support, engineering, enterprise services, product, or customer success it is very important to have a Salesforce environment to replicate bugs, train, or verify bug fixes. In addition to Salesforce, it is critical to have a Version Control System to ensure that the version control is the source of truth.

There are a number of Version Control Systems out there including, GitHub, Bitbucket, and Azure DevOps Server (formerly known as Team Foundation Server (TFS)). Each client may utilize a different Version Control System, but AutoRABIT allows you to connect to the three most popular Version Control Systems i.e., GIT, SVN, TFS.

Salesforce provides a full copy of the Lightning Platform, for free. This means you can get your very own Developer Edition to integrate with AutoRABIT for free. You can get your very own instance by signing up at: https://developer.salesforce.com/signup. 

In addition to a Development Edition orgs and also a Version Control System, it is beneficial to have Microsoft Visual Studio Code. Microsoft VS Code is a powerful source code editor that runs on your desktop. 

You can download Visual Studio Code, which integrates GIT for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Follow this link to download for your appropriate platform: https://code.visualstudio.com/download

In addition to the tools mentioned above, it is recommended to install Git Bash. The URL to download Git Bash for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux/Unix can be found here: https://git-scm.com/downloads. Git Bash is a command line through which users can use Git features including standard Unix commands. One of the common Unix command available through Git Bash is to add a file to your existing Git repository:

# create new file 
$ touch README
