A tiny server for your git repositories, allowing configurable levels of access for multiple users.
githome is currently under heavy development. The code is fine, though it is simply missing essential features at the moment; notable these include setting permissions for individual users. It is already up on PyPI, however, to allow me to test automated deployments from this source. Any help testing is very welcome.
githome is an authorization system for hosting git repositories. It allows to create rules for different users, such as a read-only or developer access and makes it easy to create new repositories by simply pushing, without having to prior create them.
githome is somewhat similar to gitolite, the successor to gitosis. It aims to be a little more self-containted and easier to install and administer - and it’s written in Python instead of Perl. The main difference is that it uses a command-line interface and database to handle settings instead of a git repository, making setups more self-contained and migrateable.
Since it is a security-sensitive piece of software facing the outside world, detailed information about its structure is found in the documentation, to help anyone administering it understand the implications on the systems security.
