Bit workspaces track changes done to components, and shows the state of each component in your project's workspace. Understanding the state of the workspace's components during the development process can be essential and provides useful information to whether components are staged, modified, or even have missing dependencies, syntax errors, or other potential issues.
A component may have more than one state. It may have a state derived from its code status (such as modified) and a state derived from its dependencies (e.g. pending to be tagged).
Bit prompts component status on both the UI and the CLI. To quickly check your workspace status, use the
bit status command.
$ bit status
You can also see the status of a component on the Workspace UI component sidebar.
No components have pending changes. Either no files are tracked in the workspace, or the tracked components have no pending changes.
nothing to tag or export
Components that have been tracked, but not yet tagged.
Bit tries to validate if a new component can be isolated, and will print all isolation issues it finds (if any).
new components (use "bit tag --all [version]" to lock a version with all your changes) > bits/a ... ok
All tagged components that are ready to be exported and shared to a remote Collection.
In Git status terms, the equivalent would be changes which have been committed but not pushed to the server.
Staged components have been verified by Bit as fully isolated.
staged components (use "bit export <remote_collection> to push these components to a remote Collection") > string/index. versions: 0.0.1, 0.0.2, 0.0.3 ... ok > string/is-string. versions: 0.0.1 ... ok > string/pad-left. versions: 0.0.1, 0.0.2 ... ok
Components that have already been staged exported or sourced, and then modified - meaning there's at least one tagged version, and untagged changes on top of it. Modified components are meant to be tagged and set as a new version.
Bit tries to validate if a modified component can be isolated, and will print all isolation issues it finds (if any).
modified components (use "bit tag --all [version]" to lock a version with all your changes) (use "bit diff" to compare changes) > string/pad-left ... ok
Components with newer versions fetched by
bit import and available to use. Use bit checkout to start using the newer version.
pending updates (use "bit checkout [version] [component_id]" to merge changes) (use "bit diff [component_id] [new_version]" to compare changes) (use "bit log [component_id]" to list all available versions) > string/pad-left current: 0.0.1 latest: 0.0.2
A component's files were physically deleted from the filesystem, but the component is still listed by Bit. The component should be removed using
bit remove <component-id>.
deleted components these components were deleted from your project. use "bit remove [component_id]" to remove these component from your workspace > bits/b ... ok
A Component (not in state new) where at least one of its dependencies is in a
