Pythonic low-level Git library
Gitlib was originally developed as part of Smug, but it is useful as a standalone library. It provides a Pythonic API for creating, accessing, or modifying a Git repository. Many features in Gitlib are implemented in native Python, while others require running Git plumbing commands. One of the primary advantages of Gitlib is that it can perform operations on a bare repository that might otherwise require a working tree.
