The Git-Ruby project is no longer maintained by me. I will leave it up here for now, but almost all of this code has since been incorporated into the
and works much, much better. If you’re interested in using Git from Ruby, please check out Grit (specifically the schacon/grit fork) – it does as much as it can from Ruby and falls back to system calls if it needs to. The API is different, but the project is being actively maintained.

After many months of agonizing thinking, I have decided to split the ruby-git project into two projects. Originally, I tried to implement some of the git stuff as pure ruby in place of system calls to ‘git’ binary. I am instead going to revert the codebase of ruby-git to only use system calls and make a second library that makes no system calls – implements everything entirely in ruby.
I am aiming to create a command line client ‘gitr’ that can do most of the same things the ‘git’ binary can do, and a ‘gitweb’ type server that can browse repositories without the git binary.
So far, I have ‘gitr’ started and the following commands implemented:
Next on the list are:
Sometime later, I’ll hit up :
My first goal with this library will be to make the simple version of git-wiki work entirely without git.
