Git for JSON

Project description

git your dict

Use Git as a key-value store that can track and merge arbitrary data in Python:

>>> r = jsongit.init('repo')
>>> r.commit('foo', {})
>>> r.checkout('foo', 'bar')
>>> r.commit('foo', {'roses': 'red'})
>>> r.commit('bar', {'violets': 'blue'})
>>> r.merge('foo', 'bar').message
Auto-merge of be92d3dcb6 and dbde44bada from shared parent 5d55214e4f
{u'roses': u'red', u'violets': u'blue'}
>>> for commit in r.log('foo'):
...     print(commit)
'foo'='{u'roses': u'red', u'violets': u'blue'}'@fc9e0f3106
'bar'='{u'violets': u'blue'}'@be92d3dcb6
'foo'='{u'roses': u'red'}'@dbde44bada


Libgit2 is used to build and modify the git repository. You can find instructions for installing it here.

Pip handles the rest:

$ pip install jsongit

You can find full installation instructions in the documentation.
