Git.framework - Mac OS X GIT Repository Framework
An implementation of Git in Objective-C & Foundation framework for embedding in Mac OS X and potentially iPhone OS Applications.
The currently supported features of the project are
- Reading objects, both loose and packed
- Resolving refs from
- Reading branches, both local and remote
Features which will be implemented at some point (in no particular order)
- Rev-list Support
- Pulling changes from a remote repository via either ssh:// or git://
- Pushing changes to a remote repository via ssh://
- Mutable objects to enable writing new objects to the repository
- Manipulation of the Index/Stage
- ... and much much more*
Additionally features from CocoaGit which are not yet supported will be evaluated and migrated into this project.
*maybe, as and when things are thought of, suggested, or otherwise materialize, terms and conditions may apply, see binary for details
Running the Test Suite
Be sure to install Bacon via: 'sudo macgem install bacon'
Code Formatting and Style
I've tried to keep the code formatting and style unified within the project and with the current body of code this should be reasonably easy to follow. To aid in keeping the tabs/spaces under control there is a pre-commit hook which can be installed via
$ rake check_tabs:install_hook
if you don't have a pre-commit hook already then this one will be installed, if you do then the script contents will be printed and you will need to merge them manually. This will cause a commit were there are tabs in the files being committed to fail. If you want to check the staged files or
Source/ contents for tabs you can use either of the following
$ rake check_tabs:source $ rake check_tabs:staged
and any offending lines will be printed.
The addition of any C level constants which need to be exposed to a bridged language such as MacRuby or PyObjC will require the regeneration of the BridgeSupport files. The headers containing the constants or functions to be exposed will need to be marked as public in the
Git target and then the
bridgesupport:generate rake task will need to be run.
Documentation of Code
All headers need to be documented using the style currently in use. Documentation is generated using the Doyxgen tool and is then post-processed by the
Documentation/doxyclean project into the final format.
