git repo version

Git aliases installed from git-repo

git-repo installs some useful git configurations for user, some unique alias commands are:

git peer-review => git repo upload --single
git pr => git repo upload --single
git download => git repo download --single

Single repository mode

Create code-review directly from client side

  1. Clone a repository

     git clone https://codeup.teambition.com/gotgit/demo.git
    
  2. Create a local branch (optional)

     git checkout -b some/topic origin/master
    
  3. Create commits in worktree...

  4. Create code-review from command line:

     git pr
    

There are many options for git pr (or git peer-review, or git review), please check the manual:

    git repo upload --help

Download code-review to local repository for review

A new code-review (pull request) will be created or a old code-review will be refreshed after running git pr. Each code-review has a unique number, such as pull request #123.

Reviewer can download it using command

git download 123

, and make a code review in local worktree.

Update code-review

Repeated command by author will update the code review:

git pr

If a reviewer wants to update a code-review, he or she can run:

git pr --change 123

(suppose 123 is the code review ID, the reviewer just downloaded)

Multiple repositories

git-repo supports android style multiple repositories management.

  • Init workspace from a manifest project.

      git repo init <manifest-url>
    
  • Clone / update all repositories referenced in the manifest repository.

      git repo sync
    
  • Create a local working branch instead of detached HEAD on all repositories.

      git repo start --all some/topic
    
  • Send changes to remote server to create code reviews.

      git repo upload
