Git and GitHub for the productivity addicted

Project description

Git and GitHub command line swiss army knife for the productivity addicted.

gg is a base command, and all the work to create branches, list branches, clean up branches, connect to Bugzilla etc. are done by plugins.

gg is stateful. Meaning, plugins (not all!) need to store additional information that is re-used for other commands. For example, to connect to your GitHub account might need to store a GitHub Access Token.


NOTE! At the time of writing, gg requires Python 3.

The idea is that you install gg globally:

sudo pip install gg

But that’s optional, you can also just install it in your current virtual environment:

pip install gg

If you don’t want to install gg and its dependencies in either the current working virtual environment or in your global system Python, you can first install pipsi then once you’ve installed and set that up:

pipsi install gg

Next, you need to install some plugins. See PLUGINS.rst for a list of available plugins.

Bash completion

First download and save it somewhere on your computer. Then put this line into your .bashrc (or .bash_profile if you’re on OSX):

source /path/to/

How to develop

To work on this, first run:

pip install -U --editable .

Now you can type:

gg --help

If you have install more plugins they will be listed under the same --help command.
