Managing code changes and edits on a team is tricky. When it's just a one-man show you can make changes to your hearts desire without stepping on toes. Introduce one or two teammates and code conflicts are bound to happen.

That's where Beanstalk comes in. Beanstalk helps you move from a one-man team managing code locally to a multi-person team managing code with version control and full on collaboration tools.

Sometimes you'd like to do a bit more than check in code though and that’s where the Beanstalk integration with Zapier comes in. With Beanstalk and Zapier you can easily:

Zapier lets you extend the functionality of Beanstalk far beyond the capabilities already built into Beanstalk and simplify the process around managing and building software.

To use this integration

  1. You’ll need an account on Beanstalk and Zapier as well as one on the web applications with which you want to integrate. Beanstalk has a several paid plans as well as a limited fee plan. Zapier has both free and paid plans.
  2. Connect your Beanstalk account to Zapier. Make sure to turn API access in Beanstalk on inside your account settings.
  3. Check out any of the integrations used with Zapier and Beanstalk.

The short youtube video walks you through creating Basecamp projects from Beanstalk Repos. Thanks to Wildbit team for creating an easy way to manage and collaborate when building software.
