Manages multiple git repositories

Project description

Build Status PyPI version

A script that can handle multiple Git repositories locally. Written in Python, supports version 3.5 and upwards.

Installation

Make sure python is installed, then run

# install from a clone of the repository
python setup.py install

or

# install from PyPi
pip install git_manager

to install the package. This will make it available by running git-manager (or git manager).

Configuration

Git Manager can be configured through its configuration file. In order, it looks for the configuration file in the following locations:

  1. $GIT_MANAGER_CONFIG (if set)
  2. ~/.config/.gitmanager/config (or $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.gitmanager/config if set)
  3. ~/.gitmanager

The configuration file is parsed line-by-line and declares which repositories are under GitManager control. It consists of three different types of directives:

  1. Root Line Configure the root folder to clone repositories to automatically. Starts with two hashes, then sets the folder relative to the users home directory. For example:

    ## /opt/repositories
    
  2. Comments Anything starting with a “#” will be treated as a comment. The same goes for empty (or whitespace-only) lines.

  3. Repository instruction To declare a repository write REPOSITORY_URL [FOLDER]. This declares that the repository from REPOSITORY_URL should be cloned into the folder FOLDER. In case the folder is omitted, the ‘humanish’ part of the URI will be taken automatically. All folder paths by default are relative to the users home folder, but this can be changed with the instruction below. Example:

    # makes the git/git repository available locally
    # in the folder ~/Projects/git
    https://github.com/git/git Projects/git
    
    # makes the GitManager repository available
    # in the folder ~/GitManager
    https://github.com/tkw1536/GitManager
    
  4. Group Instruction In the case where multiple repositories should be cloned into the same folder, it is inconvenient to always give the full path to that folder in the configuration file. For this reason GitManager supports the concept of a group. A group can be started by prefixing a line with the “>” character. A group takes one argument. A path to a folder all repositories should be cloned into. This is best illustrated in the form of an example:

    # We can create a group to store all our atom-related projects.
    # All repositories are automatically available in the ~/AtomProjects
    # folder.
    > AtomProjects
      https://github.com/atom/atom
      https://github.com/atom/markdown-preview
    
    # makes the GitManager repository available
    # in the folder ~/GitManager
    https://github.com/tkw1536/GitManager
    

    Groups completely support nesting. A sub-groups path and pattern for origin are relative to the parent group. To create a sub-group, add another “>” character in front of the line.

An example configuration file can be found in the file config_example.

Installing Repositories Locally

Setup

examples/setup.gif

Use git-manager setup [pattern] to clone repositories in the config file to the local disk. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the reposiories to install.

Clone

examples/clone.gif

Use git-manager clone [--save] url to automatically clone a repository into a location determined by the URL. Use the --save flag to automatically update the config file.

Reconfigure

examples/reconfigure.gif

Use git-manager reconfigure to automatically add repositories found in folder and it’s subdirectories to the configuration file.

Viewing Local Repositories

List

examples/ls.gif

Use git-manager ls [pattern] to list local repositories. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to list.

Status

examples/status.gif

Use git-manager status [pattern] to show the status of local repositories. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to check.

State

examples/state.gif

Use git-manager state [pattern] to compare local repositories with their remote counterpart. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to check.

Updating Local Repositories

Pull

examples/pull.gif

Use git-manager pull [pattern] to run git pull on all repositories installed locally. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to pull.

Fetch

Use git-manager fetch [pattern] [args...] to run git fetch on all repositories installed locally. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to fetch. Use the optional remaining arguments to pass further arguments to the fetch command.

Push

Use git-manager push [pattern] to run git push on all repositories installed locally. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to pull.

GC

Use git-manager gc [pattern] [args...] to run git gc on all repositories installed locally. Use the optional pattern argument to restrict the repositories to garbage collect. Use the optional remaining arguments to pass further arguments to the gc command.

Repository Patterns

Some commands optionally accept the pattern argument. This can be used to filter repository by their name.

Repository patterns are simple glob-like pattern matches on standardized remote URLs. They can also be normal glob patterns on full URLs.

For example:

Pattern Examples
world git@github.com:hello/world.git, https://github.com/hello/world
hello/* git@github.com:hello/earth.git, git@github.com:hello/mars.git
hello/m* git@github.com:hello/mars.git, git@github.com:hello/mercury.git
github.com/*/* git@github.com:hello/world.git, git@github.com:bye/world.git
github.com/hello git@github.com:hello/world.git, git@github.com:hello/mars.git

Development and Testing

This project is unit tested with a high coverage rate. The tests can be run with:

nosetests --with-coverage --cover-package GitManager

Tests are automatically run on Travis CI after every commit.
