hitch

by Rogelio J. Samour

Description:

Hitch allows developers to be properly credited when Pair Programming and using Git.

Features:

  • Persists pair(s) between different terminal instances.
  • Creates a unique email address for the pair. (e.g. dev+fry+leela@hashrocket.com) This provides the ability to create a Gravatar for the pair.

Synopsis:

  • 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: dev+fry+leela@hashrocket.com
    • Then, I go to gravatar.com. Add an image to that particular email address and I'm done.

Install:

  • gem install hitch
  • rvm users run this:
    for x in $(rvm list strings); do rvm use $x@global && gem install hitch; done
  • hitch --setup >> ~/.bashrc
    • this prints out the necessary shell function and aliases you need to add to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc
  • Or copy/paste the following into your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc:
    hitch() {
    command hitch "$@"
    if [[ -s "$HOME/.hitch_export_authors" ]] ; then source "$HOME/.hitch_export_authors" ; fi
    }
    alias unhitch='hitch -u'
    # Uncomment to persist pair info between terminal instances
    # hitch
    

Development:

  • It's easier if you use rvm.
  • Fork hitch
  • When you cd into the directory the .rvmrc will activate and create a hitch gemset
  • gem install bundler --pre
  • bundle install
  • rake # run the test suite

Requirements:

  • Git, HighLine
