    Greetings. First of all, absolutely lovely IDE and great features. However I'm not sure how should I use it properly with the particular setup we have in our company. Would be grateful if you could give a few hits.

    In our company everyone's using MavensMate as the main IDE. We're also using Git/GitHub as VCS and Jenkins to enable continuous integration from developer org(s) to full sandbox which acts as acceptance/pre-prod environment.

    In MM I create empty SFDC project then git clone repository so that I would have /src and subfolders in proper location and start working normally. IDE would just accept newer versions of the files from git pull.

    With TWS it doesn't seem to work that way. I created new project, importing just apex classes initially to get /src created in project folder structure. Following that I did git init and git clone to get all our stuff. However all other components (triggers, custom objects, etc, etc) were not picked up by IDE. So I cannot work with all the items that are in our repository.

    What am I doing wrong? I would absolutely love to work in TWS, however using the same kind of approach we use currently in the company. Thanks for the help!

    Edit: after a bit of trial and error I do get now all my things in the solution explorer. But now upon trying to deploy change to SalesForce I get the following:

    ------ Build started: Project: xxx, Configuration: Debug x86 ------
    Search for changed files started [19:13:21.257].
    The Welkin Suite has encountered following exception(s) during the build:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    Time Elapsed 00:00:00.015
    Done building project "xxx.sfproj" -- FAILED.
    ========== Build: 0 succeeded or up-to-date, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========

      Please follow the next steps to integrate your Git repository with The Welkin Suite:

      • make sure that all project changes from MM are present on Salesforce;

      • build this project;
      • select the project folder in the Git folder and execute Git Repository creation;
      • create a new branch by the Git client or make an initial commit to the first branch;
      • reopen your project in the IDE and open the Version Control Window (Main Menu -> Show Version Control) .
