This is a simple implementation of git-http-backend written in ASP.NET that can be used to read/write git repositories on Windows with IIS, or Linux with mono xsp or apache. Inspired by Grack (http://github.com/schacon/grack) This is largely untested, but has been developed with IIS7.5 under Windows 7 x64. The version of GitSharp included is a custom build with some minor changes and bug fixes. Current GitSharp.dll version is 0.3.99.0 (linquize) Current GitSharp.Core.dll version is 0.3.99.2 (linquize) Requirements: - Development tools: Visual Web Developer 2010 with .NET 4 - ASP.NET: MVC3 (Razor) - Windows: IIS5.1+ (for IIS5.1, add application settings: extension=*, path=c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll) - Linux: Mono 2.10.2, xsp, use xsp standalone or apache Edit the web.config and change the "RepositoriesDirectory" app-setting to point to a directory containing git repositories. Assuming that your repositories directory looks like this: C:\Repositories\Repo1.git ...and the RepositoriesDirectory app-setting is configured to be C:\Repositories: <appSettings> <add key="RepositoriesDirectory" value="C:\Repositories" /> <add key="RepositoryLevel" value="1" /> </appSettings> ...and the application is configured under IIS7 on port 8000, then issuing the following command will cone the Repo1.git repository: git clone http://localhost:8000/Repo1.git Once cloned, push/pull work as expected. This fork includes a file viewer and file download function. If your source code contains *.cs, *.csproj, *.vb, *.vbproj, *.java, web.config, bin directory, etc..., please remove those extensions and "Hidden Segments" you need in IIS "Request Filtering". There are currently no tests (something I hope to rectify soon). If you run into a problem, the best way to troubleshoot is by using Fiddler to see the raw request/response data.
