Setup

Requirements

Installation

Install this tool globally with pipx (or pip):

$ pipx install gitman

or add it to your Poetry project:

$ poetry add gitman

Configuration

Generate a sample config file:

$ gitman init

or manually create one (gitman.yml or .gitman.yml) in the root of your working tree:

location: vendor/gitman

sources:
  - repo: https://github.com/kstenerud/iOS-Universal-Framework
    name: framework
    rev: Mk5-end-of-life
  - repo: https://github.com/jonreid/XcodeCoverage
    name: coverage
    links:
      - target: Tools/XcodeCoverage
  - repo: https://github.com/dxa4481/truffleHog
    name: trufflehog
    rev: master
    scripts:
      - chmod a+x truffleHog/truffleHog.py
  - repo: https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome
    name: fontawesome
    rev: master
    sparse_paths:
      - "webfonts/*"
  - repo: https://github.com/google/material-design-icons.git
    name: material-design-icons
    rev: master

groups:
  - name: code
    members:
      - framework
      - trufflehog
  - name: resources
    members:
      - fontawesome
      - material-design-icons

default_group: code

Ignore the dependency storage location:

$ echo vendor/gitman >> .gitignore

Usage

See the available commands:

$ gitman --help

Updating Dependencies

Get the latest versions of all dependencies:

$ gitman update

which will essentially:

  1. Create a working tree at <root>/<location>/<name>
  2. Fetch from repo and checkout the specified rev
  3. Symbolically link each <location>/<name> from <root>/<link> (if specified)
  4. Repeat for all nested working trees containing a config file
  5. Record the actual commit SHAs that were checked out (with --lock option)
  6. Run optional post-install scripts for each dependency

where rev can be:

  • all or part of a commit SHA: 123def
  • a tag: v1.0
  • a branch: main
  • a rev-parse date: 'main@{2015-06-18 10:30:59}'

Alternatively, get the latest versions of specific dependencies:

$ gitman update framework

or named groups:

$ gitman update resources

Restoring Previous Versions

Display the versions that are currently installed:

$ gitman list

Reinstall these specific versions at a later time:

$ gitman install

Deleting Dependencies

Remove all installed dependencies:

$ gitman uninstall
