== Git# --> Git for .NET ==
... a native Windows version of the fast & free open source version control system
Git# is the most advanced C# implementation of git for the .NET framework and Mono.
It is aimed to be fully compatible to the original git for linux and can be used as stand
alone command line application or as library for windows applications such as gui
frontends or plugins for IDEs.
Git# is released under the BSD license. It is derived from the Java version jgit.
Please refer to the LICENSE.txt files for the complete license.
For more info check out the Git# website at
- Symbolic links are not supported because Windows does not directly support them.
Such links could be damaged.
- Only the timestamp of the index is used by git check if the index
is dirty.
- CRLF conversion is never performed. You should therefore
make sure your projects and workspaces are configured to save files
with Unix (LF) line endings.
== Features ==
* Read loose and packed commits, trees, blobs, including
deltafied objects.
* Read objects from shared repositories
* Add files to the index and commit changes
* Copy trees to local directory, or local directory to a tree.
* Lazily loads objects as necessary.
* Read and write .git/config files.
* Create a new repository.
* Checkout in dirty working directory if trivial.
* Walk the history from a given set of commits looking for commits
introducing changes in files under a specified path.
* Object transport
Fetch via ssh, git, http and bundles.
Push via ssh, git. Git# does not yet deltify
the pushed packs so they may be a lot larger than C Git packs.
== Missing Features ==
There are a lot of missing features in GitSharp. You need the real Git
for those.
- Merging.
- Repacking.
- Generate a GIT format patch.
- Apply a GIT format patch.
- Documentation. :-)
- gitattributes support
In particular CRLF conversion is not implemented. Files are treated
as byte sequences.
- submodule support
Submodules are not supported or even recognized.
