git-hg bi-directional interface

This does the job "hg-git" does for Mercurial, but the reverse. It actually uses the same tool (the gexport / gimport feature of Hg-Git), written by GitHub.

This is based on the Blog post by Travis Cline

To install:

sudo ln -s pwd/ /usr/lib/git-core/git-hg

Make sure you have hg-git installed. See

git hg clone

Work on your Git repo, do some commits.

git hg push

which pushes to the local .hg repo, and offers to push upstream.

When new changes arrive from upstream, run:

git hg fetch


git hg pull

which map to the same Git semantics: fetch updates your branch with new stuff, and pull adds a merge to the mix.

This code is not yet tested with complex topologies, additions, comments and pull requests are welcome.


git-hg should check for a same bookmarks Hg configuration, etc.

The first release was written at PyCon 2012, by Alexandre Bourget
