A python implemetation of git

Project Description


Maggit is a implementation of git in Python. Maggit doesn’t use subproccess call to git or external C libraries. There is no more dependancy than python standard library.

Maggit need Python 3.4 at least.

The actual version (0.1) is pretty rough:

  • The low level allow read and write git objects but the high level API provide only reading.
  • There is remote, no push/pull, no merge/rebase, no working tree.
  • API is not perfect and expect it changes.
  • Documentation is not complete.
  • Patches are welcomes. (Here are the issues tracker and the merge requests)


Here a simple example code equivalent to git log -n 10 to see how to use maggit:

import maggit
# Create a repository
repo = maggit.Repo()
branches = repo.branches
master = branches['master']
commit = master.commit
for i in range(10):
    commit = commit.parents[0]

See the doc for full information and how to use it.
