gitlab for git

Project description

GitGitLab integrates Gitlab in your git flow.

With GitGitlab, you can create projects, clone them and set them as remote source without leaving the command line.


sudo pip install gitgitlab


$ git init
$ git touch 'readme.txt'
$ git add readme.txt
$ git commit -am 'initial commit'
$ git lab create -t my_project            # Creates project my_project and adds it as remote
  Project my_project created on Gitlab
$ git remotes

Command overview

Using it from Python

To use gitgitlab from Python, import gitgitlab.client.

Using a custom Gitlab server

By default, gitgitlab uses as the Gitlab server url. If you are using your own Gitlab server, you can configure it using git config.

Configure your custom Gitlab server globally:

$ git config --global --replace-all gitlab.url <your server url>

Configure your custom Gitlab server only for the current repository:

$ git config --replace-all gitlab.url <your server url>

gitgitlab will try to connect to <your server url>/api/v3
