Overview

Git/Ruby Library

This provides bindings for working with git in complex interactions, including branching and merging, object inspection and manipulation, history, patch generation and more. You should be able to do most fundamental git operations with this library.

This module provides the basic functions to open a git reference to work with. You can open a working directory, open a bare repository, initialize a new repo or clone an existing remote repository.

Class Method Details

.bare(git_dir, options = {}) ⇒ Object

open a bare repository

this takes the path to a bare git repo it expects not to be able to use a working directory so you can't checkout stuff, commit things, etc. but you can do most read operations

# File 'lib/git.rb', line 73

def self.bare(git_dir, options = {})
  Base.bare(git_dir, options)
end

.clone(repository, name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

clones a remote repository

options

:bare => true (does a bare clone)
:repository => '/path/to/alt_git_dir'
:index => '/path/to/alt_index_file'

example

Git.clone('git://repo.or.cz/rubygit.git', 'clone.git', :bare => true)

# File 'lib/git.rb', line 87

def self.clone(repository, name, options = {})
  Base.clone(repository, name, options)
end

.export(repository, name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Export the current HEAD (or a branch, if options[:branch] is specified) into the name directory, then remove all traces of git from the directory.

See clone for options. Does not obey the :remote option, since the .git info will be deleted anyway; always uses the default remote, 'origin.'

def self.export(repository, name, options = {})
  options.delete(:remote)
  repo = clone(repository, name, {:depth => 1}.merge(options))
  repo.checkout("origin/#{options[:branch]}") if options[:branch]
  Dir.chdir(repo.dir.to_s) { FileUtils.rm_r '.git' }
end

.global_config(name = nil, value = nil) ⇒ Object

Same as g.config, but forces it to be at the global level

g.config('user.name', 'Scott Chacon') # sets value g.config('user.email', 'email@email.com') # sets value g.config('user.name') # returns 'Scott Chacon' g.config # returns whole config hash

  elsif (name)
    # return value
    lib.global_config_get(name)
  else
    # return hash
    lib.global_config_list
  end
end

.init(working_dir = '.', options = {}) ⇒ Object

initialize a new git repository, defaults to the current working directory

options

:repository => '/path/to/alt_git_dir'
:index => '/path/to/alt_index_file'

# File 'lib/git.rb', line 130

def self.init(working_dir = '.', options = {})
  Base.init(working_dir, options)
end

.open(working_dir, options = {}) ⇒ Object

open an existing git working directory

this will most likely be the most common way to create a git reference, referring to a working directory. if not provided in the options, the library will assume your git_dir and index are in the default place (.git/, .git/index)

options

:repository => '/path/to/alt_git_dir'
:index => '/path/to/alt_index_file'

Instance Method Details

#config(name = nil, value = nil) ⇒ Object

g.config('user.name', 'Scott Chacon') # sets value g.config('user.email', 'email@email.com') # sets value g.config('user.name') # returns 'Scott Chacon' g.config # returns whole config hash
