Friends of decentralized version control,
I’ve written a reader for GIT repositories in pure Ruby. It’s not much
but if you need it you haven’t to write what others have written
My intention was to write a Jabber bot for GIT commit notification. This
hasn’t been finished, but I needed a way to navigate through commits
without fetching the whole repository. I didn’t find a way to do this
with vanilla GIT or Cogito.
- Access only via HTTP (found git:// too hard to implement)
- Small HTTP backend for partial retrieval and handling HTTP resources
- Can handle packs and their .idx files
- GIT::CommitTracer grabs all commits from HEAD until a specific rev to
determine what’s new
As I said, this is not much. But maybe anyone could need it, and I would
love to help at some ruby-git project.
