git-flow

A collection of Git extensions to provide high-level repository operations for Vincent Driessen's branching model.

Installing git-flow

You can install git-flow, using:

$ easy_install gitflow

Or, if you'd like to use pip instead:

$ pip install gitflow

Please help out

This project is still under development. Feedback and suggestions are very welcome and I encourage you to use the Issues list on Github to provide that feedback.

Feel free to fork this repo and to commit your additions. For a list of all contributors, please see the AUTHORS file.

You will need unittest2 to run the tests.

License terms

git-flow is published under the liberal terms of the BSD License, see the LICENSE file. Although the BSD License does not require you to share any modifications you make to the source code, you are very much encouraged and invited to contribute back your modifications to the community, preferably in a Github fork, of course.

Typical usage:

Initialization

To initialize a new repo with the basic branch structure, use:

    git flow init

This will then interactively prompt you with some questions on which branches you would like to use as development and production branches, and how you would like your prefixes be named. You may simply press Return on any of those questions to accept the (sane) default suggestions.

Creating feature/release/hotfix/support branches

  • To list/start/finish feature branches, use:

    git flow feature
    git flow feature start <name> [<base>]
    git flow feature finish <name>
    

    For feature branches, the <base> arg must be a commit on develop.

  • To list/start/finish release branches, use:

    git flow release
    git flow release start <release> [<base>]
    git flow release finish <release>
    

    For release branches, the <base> arg must be a commit on develop.

  • To list/start/finish hotfix branches, use:

    git flow hotfix
    git flow hotfix start <release> [<base>]
    git flow hotfix finish <release>
    

    For hotfix branches, the <base> arg must be a commit on master.

  • To list/start support branches, use:

    git flow support
    git flow support start <release> <base>
    

    For support branches, the <base> arg must be a commit on master.
