In spite of some limitations in DBeaver Community Edition (CE) to work with Git, it is not an obstacle in making smooth integration of DBeaver with Git. The issue is DBeaver perspective which does not allow completely viewing of the current status of a project and project files under Git source control. One of the solutions is to utilize Resource perspective. The perspective is fully integrated with Git. The combination of both DBeaver and Resource perspectives helps make DBeaver CE as a good tool.

The article uses DBeaver 21.1.0 CE installed in Windows with GitHub.

Those articles can help get started with Git describing installation of Git extension and adding GitHub repository to DBeaver.
