This library provides an idiomatic D interface to the libgit2 library. It is based on the Deimos libgit2 bindings and currently supports versions 0.19.0 and 0.20.0 of libgit2. This library is available as a DUB package.
This project was originally started by Andrej Mitrovic as a set of bindings to libgit2. He since started to implement a D wrapper interface, which was taken up by David Nadlinger. Since some time, Sönke Ludwig has continued the maintainership and completed most of the D API, moving the C bindings to a separate package to make the D API independent of libgit2's development.
v0.50.2 - v0.50.4
GitRemote.autoTag, and a
SysTimebased overload of
GitObjectcan now be converted to
- Various small fixes and improvements to exception handling in callbacks
- Added support for indexes, submodules and tags
- Time values are handled as
- "Upcasts" from
GitObjectto specialized types, such as
GitCommitare supported now
GitSignaturenow has getter properties for all fields
- The version number has been incremented to be independent of the underlying libgit2 version - dlibgit aims to always support the latest versions of libgit2 under a unified API
- The D interface is about 70% finished
- All C bindings have been removed in favor of the separate Deimos package
- The new C-based bindings are now part of the
_version.dfiles have been renamed to
version_.d, as this is the usual D convention of naming modules that use D keywords.
- C-based documentation in the header files is now included with the .d files.
- Enums members can now be accessed both with their fully qualified name (e.g.
auto x = git_otype.GIT_OBJ_ANY), and as if they were defined in module scope (e.g.
auto x = GIT_OBJ_ANY).
- Currently the opaque structs are defined as structs with a disabled default ctor, and a disabled
copy ctor. Ordinarily opaque structs are defined via the
struct S;syntax, however due to a compiler bug (Issue 10497) the alternative syntax had to be used.
Make sure you either clone with
git clone --recursive, or if you've already cloned then use:
$ git submodule init $ git submodule update
- A pre-built version of the libgit2 DLL is included with the bindings package
- Get the libgit2 shared library with your package manager
- Or build
- Making sure you install the right version of the libgit2 bindings (e.g.
dub fetch libgit2 --version=0.19.2or
dub fetch libgit2 --version=0.20.1)
Building libgit2 manually
$ cd <your-folder-of-choice> $ git clone git://github.com/libgit2/libgit2.git $ cd libgit2 $ git checkout v0.20.0
- Then follow these instructions: https://github.com/libgit2/libgit2#building-libgit2---using-cmake
- You might need to install zlib if cmake says it's missing (On Posix use your package manager to find the
Additional Posix notes:
Make sure the libgit2 shared lib path is in your ld conf file, for example on Linux Mint libgit2 installs to
/usr/local/lib, so either edit
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Building and running samples
Note that the samples are not yet ported to the new D API and are currently absent from the repository
$ rdmd build.d diff/diff.d $ bin\diff.exe .git 2504016ab220b5b 1e8ffc04be048c0
- This will diff the first two commits in dlibgit.
- You could pass an absolute path, e.g.
$ rdmd build.d showindex/showindex.d $ bin\showindex.exe .git
git client sample: Note: This sample has not been ported to v0.19.0 yet.
$ rdmd build.d samples/network/git.d $ bin\git.exe ls-remote git://github.com/s-ludwig/dlibgit.git $ bin\git.exe index-pack path\to\.git\objects\pack\abcd1234.pack $ bin\git.exe clone git://github.com/s-dludwig/dlibgit.git ../../dlibgit2_clone
cloneis not the same as git's
clonecommand, it does not deflate git object files.
fetchdoesn't currently work due to some bugs in network\fetch.d.
path\towith a valid path for index-pack.
On win32 some libgit functions work with either form of slashes, but you should prefer using forward slashes.
As a convenience you can import
git.c (with the new 2.064 package import feature) to import all modules at once.
