                      git-hooks - Generic Git hooks

Git Hooks provides a simple mechanism to manage hooks for several Git
repositories in a unified and simple way. It allows you to install hook
scripts in a central location and use them for your Git repositories.


Installation

You need CMake and GCC in order to build and install git-hooks. You will
also need to have Git and Perl installed for the hooks to work properly.
To build git-hooks run

	$ cmake /path/to/git-hooks
	$ make

in a new directory (preferably, tho you may also run it from the source
directory). Then, use

	$ make install

to install git-hooks. This will install git-hooks to /usr/local. You can
use ccmake to change the installation prefix. Below, we will assume that
you installed git-hooks to /usr/local.


Repository setup

To setup a repository using git-hooks, just use the repository template
that ships with git-hooks.

	$ mkdir myrepo.git
	$ cd myrepo.git
	$ git --bare init --template=/usr/local/share/git-hooks/template ...

This will setup the new repository myrepo.git with git-hooks. Check the
sample config file that will be created for myrepo.git.


Repository migration

To migrate an existing repository to use git-hooks, you should first backup
your existing hook scripts. Then replace the hooks with the ones from
/usr/local/share/git-hooks/template/hooks. Afterwards, you should migrate
your previous hook scripts to global hook scripts used by git-hooks.


Configuration

The git-hooks package includes several useful hooks, which can be configured
to your needs using git config settings in your repository (or even global
settings from /etc/gitconfig). The /usr/local/share/git-hooks/template/config
file provides a sample configuration file.

Please see the hook scripts in /usr/local/share/git-hooks/*.d/ for the
various supported config settings.
