Thor tasks

Getting started: install Thor if you haven't.

gem install wycats-thor

You can install these tasks directly from the web:

thor install http://github.com/mislav/thor-tasks/tree/master/github.thor?raw=true

If you want to inspect and try out the tasks without installing, you should clone the repo:

git clone git://github.com/mislav/thor-tasks.git
cd thor-tasks
thor list

That command will get you a list of tasks together with their usage information. So, if you like them:

thor install github.thor --as GitHub

Later you'll wish to update:

git pull
thor update GitHub

On update, Thor will try to fetch the tasks from the same source you specified during install.

That's it. And now for a bit of fun.

GitHub tasks

Imagine the most common GitHub scenario: somebody forked your project, and now you want to pull changes from it. This is where the track task comes in:

github:track mislav

A remote add, fetch and tracking branch creation happens behind the scenes:

git remote add mislav git://github.com/mislav/repo-name.git
git fetch --no-tags mislav master:refs/remotes/mislav/master
git branch mislav --track mislav/master

Saved us a lot of typing, didn't it? The create task is even better:

github:create new-repo

This asks you for your GitHub login, sends out a HTTP request to create a new repository and creates this setup:

git remote add origin git@github.com:user/new-repo.git
git push origin master
git config branch.master.remote origin
git config branch.master.merge refs/heads/master

Uploading your project to GitHub has never been quicker!

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
