A git workflow plugin.
A git workflow plugin inspired by git-pivotal but intending to support multiple project management platforms aside from just Pivotal Tracker.
Bushy is a Python package and can be installed using the easy_install or pip commands. For the most seamless integration install the package so the generated console scripts are available in your $PATH.
It is always advisable to install python packages within a virtualenv. If you activate your project virtualenv while developing, this will place the commands in your $PATH automatically. Alternatively, you can create a dedicated virtualenv for Bushy and add the scripts to your shell config. If you use bash you could do the following to ensure the commands are accessible:
$ virtualenv-2.6 --no-site-packages bushy $ bushy/bin/pip install bushy $ echo "export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/bushy/bin" >> ~/.bash_profile
This will allow you to run the following commands:
$ git feature $ git finish $ git bug
As well as:
$ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-feature $ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-finish $ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-bug
Bushy requires global and project local configuration to integrate fully.
Required local configuration (from within your project directory):
$ git config -f .git/config bushy.platform pivotal # use Pivotal Tracker for this project $ git config -f .git/config bushy-pivotal.project-id PROJECT_ID # from the project url on the Pivotal Tracker site
Required global configuration:
$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.api-token TOKEN # taken from the profile section on the Pivotal Tracker site $ git config --global bushy-pivotal.full-name "YOUR NAME"
$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.integration-branch # the name of the integration branch if different from master $ git config --global bushy-pivotal.only-mine # only select from new features that are assigned to you
You can select a new feature to work on using the git-feature command:
junkafarian$ git feature Retrieving latest features from Pivotal Tracker Story: hook up with pivotal URL: http://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/8236507 Updating feature status in Pivotal Tracker... Enter branch name (will be prepended by 8236507) [feature]: Switching to branch 8236507-feature junkafarian$
If you want to work on a specific story you can specify the story id:
junkafarian$ git feature -s 12345 Retrieving story 12345 from Pivotal Tracker Story: hook up with pivotal URL: http://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/12345 Updating feature status in Pivotal Tracker... Enter branch name (will be prepended by 12345) [feature]: Switching to branch 12345-feature junkafarian$
This will switch you to a new branch for working on the issue selected.
Once you have completed the development work / checked tests pass / committed the changes, you can declare the task as finished:
junkafarian$ git finish Marking Story 8236507 as finished... Merging 8236507-feature into master Removing 8236507-feature branch Merged code into trunk. Please push upstream and notify the release manager if necessary junkafarian$
You can then push these changes upstream.
Bushy encourages a workflow based entirely around code branches. Bushes have lots of branches…
