In lib/hub/commands.rb:L12-,

  1. The Hub class is initialized:

    hub ='clone', 'rtomayko/tilt')

but fail to initialize the Hub class because Hub is a Module.

There are sentences such as:

  1. The method representing the git subcommand is executed with the full args:

    Commands.clone('clone', 'rtomayko/tilt')

but fail to run this and raise ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments (2 for 1) error.

I try to extend hub clone and learn hub's commands execution.

Please tell me actual information about hub's implementation or my misunderstanding.

Hey, thanks for pointing me to outdated documentation. I've updated the false statements.

The Hub::Runner gets initialized, not The Commands.clone method (and all similar methods) accept a single argument which is an array of all arguments. Note that this array is an instance of Args.

To learn how Hub works, you only need to read how Runner works and then study method. It's not a lot of code. Most of the tricky code deals with parsing out global git flags and handling help page scenarios.
