Guitr – the ease of git usage with multi-git-repo-project structure v0.0.6

Today new version 0.0.6 of the Guitr gem was released with following enhancements:

  • git related operations should be silent to not spam if there is nothing to display
  • options resolving logic was rewritten with OptionParser
  • –exec – a new operation allows to invoke commands against repository directory. For example, you can run guitr –exec ‘git status’ command git status will be invoked against repository directory. It will be helpful if you need to perform similar operations against each repository directory but guitr does not support it. Also the command can be any system command.

For now that’s it.

Guitr – the ease of git usage with multi-git-repo-project structure v0.0.4

Recently new version of the guitr ruby gem was pushed and ready to use.

There are following changes were made since my first post about this gem:

  • –unpushed operation – helps to check what was commited but havn’t pushed yet
  • –pull operation was refactored to a standard git pull command
  • –status operation was refactored to a standard git status command as well
  • git operation error stops guitr invocation bug was fixed
  • spec coverage was enhanced

What’s next.

In the future time I’m going to implement push operation and integrate with to handle command line arguments.

And in the far future time commits, think it can help to have one message for commits across several repositories related to one feature/user story.

That’s it, thanks for your time.

Guitr – the ease of git usage with multi-git-per-project structure

Today I’ve pushed a gem to ease of git pull/status actions on multi-modules projects with git repository per project.

What I mean about multi-modules projects – this is a case when you have some modules/projects with separate git repositories. To avoid manually entering into each directory to perform pulling or checking the status you can install guitr and relax a bit 😉

To install guitr use following command:

[sudo] gem install guitr

To check status use following command:

guitr --status [path_to_repo]  #path is optional argument and if not specified guitr will use current directory as a base directory to start walk from.
guitr --pull [path_to_repo] #Invokes git pull per each git working directory

Fow this time that’s it what guitr can do.
