Hitch allows developers to be properly credited when Pair Programming and using Git.
- Persists pair(s) between different terminal instances.
- Creates a unique email address for the pair. (e.g. email@example.com) This provides the ability to create a Gravatar for the pair.
- Allows you to expire the pair information in N hours. e.g. hitch --expire 8 fry leela
- For leela and fry to pair:
- hitch leela fry
- To clear pair info:
- hitch -u
- For a complete list of features:
- hitch -h
- Creating a Gravatar for your pair:
- Once I've hitched with my pair. (e.g. hitch leela fry) I have now created a unique email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Then, I go to gravatar.com. Add an image to that particular email address and I'm done.
- gem install hitch
- rvm users run this:
for x in $(rvm list strings); do rvm use $x@global && gem install hitch; done
- hitch --setup >> ~/.bashrc
- this prints out the necessary shell function and aliases you need to add to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc
- Or copy/paste the code into your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc
- As another option, copy/symlink the script to a separate file (e.g.
/etc/profile.d/hitch.sh) and source it. You can get the path using
- It's easier if you use rvm.
- Fork hitch
- When you cd into the directory the .rvmrc will activate and create a hitch gemset
- Add tests and code for your feature
- Create a pull request
- Double-check TravisCI to make sure all tests pass
