Recommended git config and git scripts for Statistics Norway.

Project description


Repo for sharing recommended git config and git scripts in Statistics Norway.

This repo should cover git config files for the production zone, Linux and Windows (Citrix and VDI), JupyterLab (Dapla and production zone), administrative zone and stand alone.

Initially the repo will contain a collection of git configurations for the different environments. But the aim is to make a common script, setting up the recommended git config for all SSB platforms, based on the detected environment.


The script works and is tested on the following platforms:

  • Dapla
  • Production zone, Linux (including Jupyter)
  • Production zone, Windows (Citrix)


The existing directory contains configurations collected from existing environments before any recommendations are implemented. The recommended directory contains the recommended config files for the different environments.

The ssb_gitconfig directory is the root directory for the script that should set the ssb recommended git config based on the detected environment. It is a work in progress and not finished yet.


Linux and Mac OS:

git clone


git clone
python kvakk-git-tools\kvakk_git_tools\

Developer guide

Initial setup

The Poetry tool is used for dependency management. Install poetry as described on the Poetry installation page, if not already installed. Then run the following commands in the cloned repo:

poetry install
poetry run pre-commit install

Source code requirements

  • The source code must support python version 3.6, because one of the supported platforms is based on RHEL 7.
  • It shall be possible to run the script from a plain python installation. That is: Don't use external libraries.
  • The source code shall run on these platforms: Linux, Windows and macOS.


You can do local linting with the following commands:

poetry run flake8
poetry run mypy .
poetry run pylint kvakk_git_tools/*.py

Bumping version

Use make to bump the patch, minor version or major version before creating a pull request to the main GIT branch.

You can use either bump-version-patch, bump-version-minor, or bump-version-major. Bumping must be done with a clean git working space, and automatically commits with the new version number.

Then just run git push origin --tags to push the changes and trigger the release process.

Building and releasing

Before merging your changes into the main branch, make sure you have bumped the version like outlined above.

An automatic release process will build kvakk-git-tools and release a new version of the package to automatically.
