NAME
    App::GitHub::FindRepository - Determine the right case for a GitHub
    repository

VERSION
    Version 0.05

SYNOPSIS
        github-find-repository git://github.com/robertkrimen/Doc-Simply.git
        # git://github.com/robertkrimen/doc-simply.git

        github-find-repository robertkrimen,Doc-Simply
        # git://github.com/robertkrimen/doc-simply.git

        github-find-repository --pinger=./bin/git-ls-remote ...

        # ... or ...

        use App::GitHub::FindRepository

        my $url = App::GitHub::FindRepository->find( robertkrimen/Doc-Simply )
        # git://github.com/robertkrimen/doc-simply.git

DESCRIPTION
    GitHub recently made a change that now allows mixed-case repository
    names. Unfortunately, their git daemon will not find the right
    repository given the wrong case.

    App::GitHub::FindRepository ("github-find-repository") will interrogate
    the repository home page (HTML), looking for the "right" repository name
    in a case insensitive manner

    If LWP is not installed and curl is not available, then the finder will
    fallback to using the git protocol (via git-ls-remote or
    git-peek-remote). It will first attempt to ping the mixed-case version,
    and, failing that, will attempt to ping the lowercase version.

    In either case, it will return/print the valid repository url, if any

CAVEAT
    When finding via the git protocol, the following applies:

    Given a mixed-case repository, the find routine will try the mixed-case
    once, then the lowercase. It will not find anything else

        github-find-repository --git-protocol robertkrimen/Doc-Simply

    ...will work, as long as the real repository is
    "robertkrimen/Doc-Simply.git" or "robertkrimen/doc-simply.git"

    If the real repository is "robertkrimen/dOc-sImPlY.git" then the finder
    will NOT see it

INSTALL
        cpan -i App::GitHub::FindRepository

    You can also try using the bash script below if you need a quick-fix

USAGE
  github-find-repository
    A commandline application that will print out the the repository with
    the right casing

        Usage: github-find-repository [...] <repository>

            --pinger        The pinger to use (default is either git-ls-remote or git-peek-remote)

            --getter        The getter to use (default is LWP then curl)

            --git-protocol  Don't try to determine the repository by sniffing HTML, just use git://
                            NOTE: This mode will only check the given casing then lowercase

            --output        One of: URL, base, name, public, private

                            Given "http://github.com/robertkrimen/aPp-giTHub-findRepoSitory.git"

                            URL      http://github.com/robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository.git
                            public   git://github.com/robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository.git
                            private  git\@github.com:robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository.git
                            base     robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository
                            name     App-GitHub-FindRepository
                            home     http://github.com/robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository

            <repository>    The repository to test, can be like:

                            git://github.com/robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository.git
                            robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository.git
                            robertkrimen,App-GitHub-FindRepository

        For example:

            github-find-repository --getter curl robertkrimen,aPp-giTHuB-findRepOsitory

  $repository = AppGitHub::FindRepository->find( <repository> [, ...] )
    Given a mixed-case repository URI, it will return the version with the
    right case

        getter  The method to use to access the repository home page (HTML)
        pinger  The pinger to use to access the repository via the git protocol

  $repository = AppGitHub::FindRepository->find_by_git( <repository> [, ...] )
        pinger  The pinger to use to access the repository via the git protocol

    Given a mixed-case repository URI, it will return the version with the
    right case, but only using the git protocol

    NOTE: This method will only check the given casing then lowercase. See
    CAVEAT

::Repository
    The repository object that "->find" and "->find_by_git" return

    The object will stringify via the "->url" method

  $repository->url
    The URL (URI) of the repository (depends on what the object was
    instantiated with)

  $repository->public
    The public github clone URL:

        git://github.com/<base>.git

  $repository->private
    The private github clone URL:

        git@github.com:<base>.git

  $repository->base
    The user/project part of the repository path (WITHOUT the .git suffix):

        robertkrimen/App-GitHub-FindRepository

  $repository->name
    The name of the project:

        App-GitHub-FindRepository

  $repository->home
    The home page of the project on GitHub:

        http://github.com/<base> # Will redirect to .../tree/master

A bash function as an alternative
    If you do not want to install App::GitHub::FindRepository, here is a
    bash equivalent (using the git protocol, see CAVEAT):

        #!/bin/bash

        function github-find-repository() {
            local pinger=`which git-ls-remote`
            if [ "$pinger" == "" ]; then pinger=`which git-peek-remote`; fi
            if [ "$pinger" == "" ]; then echo "Couldn't find pinger (git-ls-remote or git-peek-remote)"; return -1; fi
            local repository=$1
            if [ "`$pinger $repository 2>/dev/null`" ]; then echo $repository; return 0; fi
            repository=`echo $repository | tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]" `
            if [ "`$pinger $repository 2>/dev/null`" ]; then echo $repository; return 0; fi
            return -1
        }

        github-find-repository $*
