This project is to make a clone of gitweb in Ruby and Sinatra. It serves git repositories out of a set of specified directories using an array of glob-based paths. I have plans to make it function just as gitweb does, including leeching config files and suchlike.
Updating to the Most Recent Release (Gem):
$ gem install ginatra
- Run the following to open an irb with Ginatra loaded:
$ irb -r 'rubygems' -r 'rubygems'
- In this irb session, run the following then close it:
BEWARE: The last method that you just called will dump a config to
This ignores anything already there, so be careful. You have been warned.
You can now copy the contents your old
~/.ginatra/ file into
You should be using Git 1.6.3 or later just to be sure that it all works:
$ git --version git version 1.6.3
Next, just do the following (your setup may require sudo):
$ gem install ginatra
This pulls down most of the required dependencies too.
The last dependency you need is pygments, an awesome python syntax highlighter. To check whether you have it, run:
$ which pygmentize
If this returns a path pointing to a 'pygmentize' binary, then you're all set.
If not you'll need to install pygments. Look at the last section of the
jekyll wiki "install" page
to see how to install it. Also make sure again that the
is on your path.
If you want to play around with the code, you can clone the repository. This also allows you to use a special rackup file to mount it where you wish. I am yet to sort out some of the details of running Ginatra from a gem with a rackup.ru file.
If you're just using it in development, use the following to start, check and stop Ginatra respectively:
$ ginatra server start $ ginatra server status $ ginatra server stop
Ginatra also runs on thin, with the approach outlined above.
BEWARE: There are issues running Ginatra on Passenger. We discourage Ginatra's use on Passenger until we can make it stable.
Ginatra can also start a git-daemon serving all the repositories that ginatra serves:
$ ginatra daemon start $ ginatra daemon status $ ginatra daemon stop
This runs on the default git daemon port.
You can add a glob specified list of git repositories for ginatra to serve using the following commands:
$ ginatra directory add '~/Git/ginatra/*' $ ginatra directory list $ ginatra directory remove '~/Git/ginatra/*'
These should be fairly self explanatory. Help is shown with either the --help option or by not specifying a sub-command like start, status, stop, add, list or remove.
