Git Store

A key/value store based on Git.


“Gittin Down to the Plumbing” by Scott Chacon (


The gem is available through Rubygems and can be installed via:

$ gem install git_store

Runtime dependencies

Getting started

Open a new Git Store:

$ mkdir my_store
$ cd my_store
$ git_store --port 4567
$ open http://localhost:4567

The Git Store will refuse to open if your current directory already contains a .git folder. But you can force the Git Store to reopen by passing the “–reopen” argument.

$ git_store –port 4567 –reopen
