Simple open source web admin for git repositories?

Excuse this slightly off topic post, but I figure ruby-talk is a good
community to ask, and if someone has done this they probably wrote it in
Ruby :slight_smile:

Does anyone know of an open source tool that gives you basic CRUD tools
for
git repositories? i.e. lets you create repositories on your origin
server
via the web, “read” them and view/browse the branches/tags/commits via
the
web, make changes to them (e.g. rename them), and delete them?

I’m basically looking for a “github lite” with only the core set of
github
features. I would actually prefer repositories weren’t user-specific
but
could be administered by any user on the system.

One option might be Gitorious: http://gitorious.org/

Personally I use gitosis (good intro:
http://scie.nti.st/2007/11/14/hosting-git-repositories-the-easy-and-secure-way)
but it doesn’t provide web administration functions.

There’s no Ruby in it (Perl + sh), but Girocco runs repo.or.cz and
probably does a good deal of what you need:

http://repo.or.cz/w/girocco.git

As mentioned previously, there’s also Gitorious which is Ruby.

I’ve never administered either of those, as gitosis+cgit are enough
for my needs.

We use cgit (http://hjemli.net/git/cgit/) which is great a browser. It
does not provide create capabilities. It might be pretty close to what
you want.

Thanks, that’s exactly the sort of thing I was looking for
