Gittle - Pythonic Git for Humans

Gittle is a high-level pure-python git library. It builds upon dulwich which provides most of the low-level machinery

Why implement Git in Python ?

NEED FOR AWESOMENESS :

  • Git is Awesome
  • Python is Awesome
  • Automating Git isn't so Awesome

TO SOLVE MY OWN PROBLEMS AT FRIENDCODE :

  • Automate git repo management (push/pull, commit, etc ...)
  • Scriptable and usable from Python
  • Easy to use & good interoperability in a SOA environment

USE IT FOR :

  • Local
    • Common git operations (add, rm, mv, commit, log)
    • Branch operations (creating, switching, deleting)
  • Remote
    • Fetching
    • Pushing
    • Pulling (needs merging)
  • Merging
    • [-] Fast forward
    • [-] Recursive
    • [-] Merge branches
  • Diff
    • Filter binary files

Install it

pip install gittle

Examples :

Clone a repository

from gittle import Gittle

repo_path = '/tmp/gittle_bare'
repo_url = 'git://github.com/FriendCode/gittle.git'

repo = Gittle.clone(repo_url, repo_path)

With authentication (see Authentication section for more information) :

auth = GittleAuth(pkey=key)
Gittle.clone(repo_url, repo_path, auth=auth)

Or clone bare repository (no working directory) :

repo = Gittle.clone(repo_url, repo_path, bare=True)

Init repository from a path

repo = Gittle.init(path)

Get repository information

# Get list of objects
repo.commits

# Get list of branches
repo.branches

# Get list of modified files (in current working directory)
repo.modified_files

# Get diff between latest commits
repo.diff('HEAD', 'HEAD~1')

Commit

# Stage single file
repo.stage('file.txt')

# Stage multiple files
repo.stage(['other1.txt', 'other2.txt'])

# Do the commit
repo.commit(name="Samy Pesse", email="samy@friendco.de", message="This is a commit")

Pull

repo = Gittle(repo_path, origin_uri=repo_url)

# Authentication with RSA private key
key_file = open('/Users/Me/keys/rsa/private_rsa')
repo.auth(pkey=key_file)

# Do pull
repo.pull()

Push

repo = Gittle(repo_path, origin_uri=repo_url)

# Authentication with RSA private key
key_file = open('/Users/Me/keys/rsa/private_rsa')
repo.auth(pkey=key_file)

# Do push
repo.push()

Authentication for remote operations

# With a key
key_file = open('/Users/Me/keys/rsa/private_rsa')
repo.auth(pkey=key_file)

# With username and password
repo.auth(username="your_name", password="your_password")

Branch

# Create branch off master
repo.create_branch('dev', 'master')

# Print a list of branches
print(repo.branches)

# Remove a branch
repo.remove_branch('dev')

# Print a list of branches
print(repo.branches)

Get file version

versions = repo.get_file_versions('gittle/gittle.py')
print("Found %d versions out of a total of %d commits" % (len(versions), repo.commit_count()))

Get list of modified files (in current working directory)

repo.modified_files

Count number of commits

repo.commit_count

Get information for commits

List commits :

# Get 20 first commits
repo.commit_info(start=0, end=20)

With a given commit :

commit = "a2105a0d528bf770021de874baf72ce36f6c3ccc"

Diff with another commit :

old_commit = repo.get_previous_commit(commit, n=1)
print repo.diff(commit, old_commit)

Explore commit files using :

commit = "a2105a0d528bf770021de874baf72ce36f6c3ccc"

# Files tree
print repo.commit_tree(commit)

# List files in a subpath
print repo.commit_ls(commit, "testdir")

# Read a file
print repo.commit_file(commit, "testdir/test.txt")

Create a GIT server

from gittle import GitServer

# Read only
GitServer('/', 'localhost').serve_forever()

# Read/Write
GitServer('/', 'localhost', perm='rw').serve_forever()
