Type less and open repo webpages faster all from your terminal.
git-open is a commandline utility that allows you to specify a repo name
and optionally the author and will then open the matching resource in your
Requires the name of the repo that you want to open. You can optionally specify
the user that owns the repo. If you don't pass in a user name it will fall back
to what you've specified for
$GITHUB_USER and if that is not set it will fall
back to your entry for
git config --get github.user. (You'd probably have this
set if you're interested in this script after all!)
For example, if you want to open up repo
bar for Github author
foo, you'd run:
$ ./git-open.sh foo bar
which will open your web-browser to the given user's repo.
If, on the other hand, you've configured your local git to include a github
section and your username is set to
baz and you want to open your
$ ./git-open.sh foo # defaults to `baz` for author name
You can clone the repo into
~/src and symlink to
~/bin and use it anywhere:
$ git clone https://github.com/jeffreyiacono/git-open.git ~/src/git-open $ ln -s ~/src/git-open/git-open.sh ~/bin/git-open $ git-open -h # Usage: /Users/username/bin/git-open [user name] <repo name> # Note: user name will default to $GITHUB_USER or your `git config --get github.user` entry.
And make sure
~/bin is in your
I'm using Github Enterprise!
Well lucky you. Nice to see that you work for a company that can shell for it!
In this case just set
GITHUB_URL in your shell and the script will default to
For example, if your company hosts its github install at
include this in your
~/.bashrc.local (or where ever you'd like):
I need to customize my default username
Again, we've got you covered: just set
GITHUB_USER and the script will default
to this value. If it is not set, we try to pull out what you've configured
Github to use (via
git config --get github.user). Use the same pattern as
above to make your desired username available to the script.
- Fork it
