libGit Project ======================= Why, oh why would anyone re-implement Git functionality in C? Git is already written in C! There are two reasons for this insanity. The first is that the core Git code is GPL'd, which means you can't embed it in any commercial or closed source distributed product. We specifically want to do some commercial stuff with Git and don't want to fork out to shell calls to do it. The second major reason is that this library does not do any command line stuff and never will, so it's not really competing with Git for anything. It is a linked library and is meant to be used by other programs only. It is being built for an Obj-C program, but should be able to be built as bindings for Ruby, Perl or Python (or whatever). It is not designed to do _everything_ that the core git project can do, it is meant to provide object and packfile read and write access and basic server functions. Testing libGit ========================= cd test make Thats about it. It's a pretty simple testing framework, but it'll do.
