Building an enterprise app that has revision control similar to github (any gem that does something similar to this?)

Masud Hossain asked in General

I'm looking to create a webapp that lets users upload and save files similar to github (except no terminal usage. Users upload through the website) and have version control so they can retrieve previous files.

Is there any gems or videos on this site that can teach me more about this revision control feature?
