A tool to track commits in a git repository by GPS coordinates.
Currently only works on OS X.
For awhile now, I've wanted GPS logging of my checkins to source control
systems. Between the
CoreLocation framework on OS X and git's post-commit
hooks, this is now possible.
Build the git-gps project, and put the resulting git-gps binary in
Now, to start logging GPS on checkins in a checkout of a git repo, go to your repo and run:
Then, each time you commit to the repo, a post-commit hook will be run
which updates the
.git-gps file at the root of the repository and adds
it to the commit.
This is very alpha-level software, so please file issues, etc.
After writing this, I found out about geocommit, which does something very similar, except using git notes. The notes approach keeps the geo coordinates local until explicitly synced with the git remote. So, that would be more appropriate if you're concerned about privacy.
