$ a2x --doctype manpage --format manpage git-phab.txt
$ ln -s $PWD/git-phab.1 ~/.local/share/man/man1/

Optionaly enable bash completion:

$ sudo activate-global-python-argcomplete3

And add this in your ~/.bash_completion:

function _git_phab()
  COMP_WORDS=(git-phab ${COMP_WORDS[@]:2})
  COMP_LINE=${COMP_LINE/git phab/git-phab}
  _python_argcomplete_global git-phab

Git subcommand to integrate with phabricator.


First, configure where to push WIP branches:

$ git config phab.remote xclaesse

Before starting your work, create a branch:

$ git checkout -b fix-bugs origin/master
Branch fix-bugs set up to track remote branch master from origin.
Switched to a new branch 'fix-bugs'

Note that is it important to set the tracking remote branch, git-phab will use it to set the default commit range to attach.

Now fix your bugs…

When the branch is ready for review, attach it (requesting the creation of a new task):

$ git phab attach --task
Using revision range 'origin/master..'
a3beba9 — Not attached — Truncate all_commits when filtering already proposed commits
Attach above commits and create a new task? [yn] y
Push HEAD to xclaesse/wip/phab/T3436-fix-bugs? [yn] y
Create and checkout a new branch called: T3436-fix-bugs? [yn] y

New: task T3436
New: 66b48b9 — D483 — Truncate all_commits when filtering already proposed commits
Branch pushed to xclaesse/wip/phab/T3436-fix-bugs
Branch T3436-fix-bugs created and checked out

Note that the current branch name wasn’t starting with a task ID, so it proposed to create a new one. If you already had a task for it, just pass --task option. But it created a new branch prefixed with the task ID so future git-phab commands will know which task this branch refers to:

$ git branch
* T3436-fix-bugs

When your commits have been accepted, merge them:

$ git checkout master
$ git merge T3436-fix-bugs
$ git phab land
66b48b9 — D483 Accepted — Truncate all_commits when filtering already proposed commits
Do you want to push above commits? [yn] y
Do you want to close 'T3436'? [yn] y

You can now cleanup your branches:

$ git phab clean
Task 'T3436' has been closed, do you want to delete branch 'T3436-fix-bugs'? [yn] y
  -> Branch T3436-fix-bugs was deleted
Task 'T3436' has been closed, do you want to delete branch 'xclaesse/wip/phab/T3436-fix-a-bug'? [yn] y
  -> Branch xclaesse/wip/phab/T3436-fix-a-bug was deleted
