Generic key-value interface to a Git repository
A Git-based key-value store backend for Indicium.
# Instantiate and write some data. from indicium.git import GitStore store = GitStore("./data", autocommit=False) store.put("/the-answer", b"10") # Not needed with autocommit=True store.commit("Note down the answer to everything") # Create a new commit with the correct answer. store.put("/the-answer", b"42") store.commit("Fix the answer to everything")
The ./data directory will contain a Git repository which can be inspected with git. Every call to .commit() adds a commit to it or, with the auto-commit mode enabled, every call to .put() and .delete() will implicitly add a commit.
All stable releases are uploaded to PyPI, so you can install them and upgrade using pip:
pip install indicium-git
Alternatively, you can install the latest development code —at your own risk— directly from the Git repository:
pip install git://github.com/aperezdc/indicium-git
If you want to contribute, please use the usual GitHub workflow:
- Clone the repository.
- Hack on your clone.
- Send a pull request for review.
If you do not have programming skills, you can still contribute by reporting issues that you may encounter. Contributions to the documentation are very welcome, too!
