Hoe Loves Git
A set of Hoe plugins for tighter Git integration. Provides tasks to automate release tagging and pushing and changelog generation. I expect it'll learn a few more tricks in the future.
# in your Rakefile Hoe.plugin :git
If this plugin doesn't see a .git directory at the root of your project, it'll silently deactivate itself.
Autogenerating the Changelog
$ rake git:changelog
This takes all the commit messages since your last release and formats 'em into a nice RDoc fragment. If you specify VERSION, it'll be used in the changelog fragment. If you specify FROM, it'll be used as a starting point for the changelog instead of your last tagged release.
The rdoc is automatically formatted into sections by using “annotated commit messages” by using a simple format for multi-line commit messages:
! major change description. + minor change description. - bug fix description. un-logged description (for minor stuff like re-formatting).
Generating the Manifest
$ rake git:manifest
This will regenerate Manifest.txt using git ls-files. It respects Hoe's manifest sort order and excludes.
Tagging and Sanity Checking a Release
$ rake release VERSION=1.0.0
In addition to the normal RubyForge release process, this will create and push a v1.0.0 tag. It'll also abort the release if your index is dirty, or if there are untracked files present.
The git:changelog and git:tag tasks understand git-svn repositories, and will adjust their behavior accordingly.
Hoe and Git, obviously. I wouldn't be surprised if things don't quite work for git < 1.6.3.
$ gem install hoe-git
Release tags are sorted lexicographically right now, which won't work for long.
