Metéchō is a Salesforce.org, Open Source Commons, Web-based tool that makes it easier for you to view, test, and contribute to Salesforce Projects created for the Salesforce platform without requiring knowledge of GitHub or Salesforce Command Line.
Pronunciation: “Met” rhymes with “bet.” “Echo” as in the reflection of sound waves.
Definition: To share or participate in.
Metéchō combines all the power of the GitHub code repository and Salesforce scratch orgs and wraps it into a Web site. There is no need to install anything on your computer to get something from code into a working Salesforce scratch org. Metéchō makes it easy to:
Takes Salesforce code and metadata that has been configured with CumulusCI and builds an org with other package dependencies, data, and org configurations. All with the click of a button.
Create Epics from GitHub issues. An epic is like a story of something you need to build into a project
Assign developers and testers to bite sized tasks within an epic for declarative changes made in scratch orgs
Automatically creates Github branches for epic task
Automatically creates GitHub branches for tasks
Retrieves declarative, clicks-not-code, changes from Metéchō scratch orgs to GitHub code
Regulate access to Metéchō through GitHub
There is no need to install anything (other than a Web browser) to use Metéchō. All that is needed is access give through the Open Source Commons.
