Git HTTP Backend

This is a Go based implementation of Grack (a Rack application), which aimed to replace the builtin git-http-backed CGI handler distributed with C Git. Grack was written to allow far more webservers to handle Git smart http requests. The aim of this project is to improve Git smart http performance by utilising the power of Go.

Dependencies

  • Git >= 1.7

Install

go get github.com/asim/git-http-backend

Usage
