Python commodity wrapper around GitPython

Project description

git_wrapper Documentation Status

Python wrapper around GitPython


  • TODO


This library only supports python 3. Some features may still work with python 2.7 but not all of the syntax and features may be compatible.


There are several dependencies needed to build and work on git_wrapper. Using your distribution’s package manager, install these system packages:


git_wrapper uses the upcoming standard of Pipfiles via pipenv. This is integrated into our Makefile and once you have the above dependencies, you can simply run:

make dev

This will install our dev environment for the package via pipenv. It is installed with –user, so it does not affect your site-packages. Pipenv creates a unique virtualenv for us, which you can activate via:

pipenv shell

See the pipenv documentation for more detail.


To build the documentation on your checkout, simply run:

make docs

We plan to get this published in the near future, and this README will be updated when that happens.


All new code should include tests that excercise the code and prove that it works, or fixes the bug you are trying to fix. Any Pull Request without tests will not be accepted.

Pushing a new release

  1. Prepare a patch to update the version number (example)
  2. Once that’s merged, tag that patch and push the new tag to the repo
  3. Github Actions will then automatically build and publish a new release.


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
