git-open

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 web-browser.

Usage

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 bar repo:

$ ./git-open.sh foo # defaults to `baz` for author name

Installation

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 PATH.

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 this value.

For example, if your company hosts its github install at git.my-company.com, include this in your ~/.bashrc.local (or where ever you'd like):

export GITHUB_URL='https://git.my-company.com'

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.
