Git plus

Git plus is a set of git utilities:

  • git multi execute a single git command on multiple git repositories
  • git relation show a relation between two branches/commits/tags
  • git old-branches find old/unused branches
  • git recent list branches ordered by last commit time

Installation

Add this directory to your $PATH:

export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/git-plus

On OSX using brew:

brew install git-plus

Or using pip:

pip install git-plus

Git multi

If you have repositories ~/projects/repository1, ~/projects/repository2, ~/projects/repository3, ~/projects/repository4, ... First go to:

cd ~/projects

Check the status of all repositories:

git multi status

...which is the same as:

git multi

Execute "git gui" only on repositories which contain some changes:

git multi -c gui

Switch to "master" for all repositories:

git multi checkout master

Create a "test" branch on all repositories and checkout it immediately:

git multi checkout -b test

...and so on. The basic usage is simple "git multi normal_git_commands_here". In addition to this, "git multi -c git_commands" will execute "git_commands" only on changed repositories and "git multi -b" will show the current branch for all repositories.

If you want your "git multi" commands to always execute all except some repositories add them to the file ".multigit_ignore" in the same directory.

With:

git multi -a

A .tar archive named git-repositories-yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm.tar with all repositories in this directory (i.e. their .git directories) will be created.

If you have a nested structure of repositories, e.g. ~/project1/repository1, ~/project1/repository2, ~/project2/repository3, use

git multi -d 2

... or a different number to look for git repositories up to the specified depth.

Group by output

If you have many projects with same git commant output, for example:

git multi status

aaa:
	# On branch master
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bbb:
	# On branch TRUNK
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)
ccc:
	# On branch master
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)
ddd:
	# On branch master
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)
eee:
	# On branch TRUNK
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)

You can configure multi git to group projects with same output together:

aaa, ccc, ddd:
	# On branch master
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bbb, eee:
	# On branch TRUNK
	nothing to commit (working directory clean)

This can be done by setting:

git config --global 'multi.groupbyoutput' 1

Or reset to default with:

git config --global --unset 'multi.groupbyoutput'

Git relation

Git relation gives you the relation between two commits/branches/tags. For example:

git relation master test-branch

...will tell you if two branches are equals, or if master is AHEAD of test-branch or if master is BEHIND test-branch or if they diverged in some commit in history.

For example:

$ git relation master test-branch
master is AHEAD of test-branch

Commits from test-branch to master:
  2176e45 Tomo Krajina git-multi in README, 18 hours ago
  50b2f79 Tomo Krajina + README, 18 hours ago

Another example:

$ git relation branch-1 branch-2
branch-1 and branch-2 DIVERGED, common point is 7e0bb439dd2aef4ff0262afec0a98461489becae

Commits from 7e0bb439dd2aef4ff0262afec0a98461489becae to branch-1:
  3d0246b Tomo Krajina js namespace, 3 weeks ago
  60215aa Tomo Krajina Merge branch 'new-path-editor' into new-path-editor--js-namespace, 3 weeks ago
  1e76deb Tomo Krajina js namespace, 5 weeks ago

Commits from 7e0bb439dd2aef4ff0262afec0a98461489becae to branch-2:
  359eff6 Tomo Krajina form event functions, 5 hours ago
  a99b5f8 Tomo Krajina ..., 3 weeks ago
  1d3b97c Tomo Krajina Preparations for marker handler, 3 weeks ago
  9546769 Tomo Krajina Removed all subscription stuff, 3 months ago

By default, git-rel shows no more than 30 commits (if there are more some will be omitted). You can show the list of all commits with:

$ git relation -a branch-1 branch-2

Git old-branches

Old-branches can detect old/unused branches.

Find local branches older than 10 days:

$ git old-branches -d 10

Find remote branches older than 60 days:

$ git old-branches -r -d 60

Find local and remote branches older than 120 days:

$ git old-branches -a -d 120

Find and remove branches older than 10 days:

$ git old-branches -d 10 --delete
Branch old-branch is older than 10 days (13.89)!
Remove [yes/N] ?

Note that branches will not be removed unconditionally, you'll be asked once to confirm the deletion.

Git recent

Find list of branches ordered by last commit time:

git recent

Show only remote branches:

git recent -r

Show all branches (local and remote)

git recent -a

Show only last 10 branches:

git recent -10

Show only first 15 branches:

git recent 15
