Project description

# Django Gitolite

A basic Django app for using Gitolite

## Configuration

By default the Gitolite rc file is ~/.gitolite.rc. Follow these steps:

  1. Add LOCAL_CODE => “$rc{GL_ADMIN_BASE}/local”, to the rc file.
  2. Create ~/.gitolite/local/triggers/post-compile/django, it should be executable and call the gitolitetrigger management command.
  3. Create ~/.gitolite/local/hooks/common/post-receive, it should be executable and call the gitolitehook management command.
  4. Add POST_COMPILE => [‘post-compile/django’], to the rc file.
  5. Add POST_CREATE => [‘post-compile/django’], to the rc file.
  6. Add SSH_AUTHKEYS => [‘post-compile/ssh-authkeys’], to the rc file.

This is an example post-compile/django script:

#!/bin/bash PYTHONPATH=/srv/git/site DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=settings python /srv/git/site/ gitolitetrigger $@

This is an example post-receive script:

#!/bin/bash PYTHONPATH=/srv/git/site DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=settings python /srv/git/site/ gitolitehook $@

### Running as another user

This configuration requires sudo and the current user to be in the same group as the gitolite user’s default group.

As the gitolite user, open ~/.gitolite.rc and add UMASK => 0027,. This is required to be able to read gl-creator and gl-forked-from files in the repositories. Next, ensure that the key directory, ~/.gitolite/keydir exists and is writable by the current user. Files in this directory need to be readable by the gitolite user, to ensure that files are created belong to the gitolite user’s default group use chmod g+rwxs ~/.gitolite/keydir.

Next, you need to setup sudo so the gitolite user can use it to run Gitolite triggers. Insert the following line into /etc/sudoers:

%git ALL=(git)NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/gitolite trigger SSH_AUTHKEYS
