Keep track of all the git repositories on your machine.
This crate houses the binary and library for the git-global subcommand, a
way to find, query statuses, and gain other insights about all the git repos
on your machine. The binary can be installed with cargo:
cargo install git-global.
$ git global [status] # show `git status -s` for all your git repos $ git global info # show information about git-global itself $ git global list # show all git repos git-global knows about $ git global scan # search your filesystem for git repos and update cache
The git-global project’s primary goal is to produce a useful binary. There’s no driving force to provide a very good library for other Rust projects to use, so this documentation primarily serves to illustrate how the codebase is structured. (If a library use-case arises, however, that would be fine.)
Repo struct is a git repository that is identified by the full path
to its base directory (instead of, say, its
Config struct holds a user’s git-global configuration information,
which usually merges some default values with values in the
section of the user’s global
.gitconfig file. It provides access to the
list of known
Repos via the
get_repos() method, which reads from a cache
file, populating it for the first time after performing a filesystem scan,
Report contains messages added by a subcommand about the overall
results of what it did, as well as messages about the specific
which that subcommand applies. All subcommand modules expose an
function that takes ownership of a
Config struct and returns a
Result<Report>. These subcommands live in the
run_from_command_line() function handles running git-global
from the command line and serves as the entry point for the binary.
Subcommand implementations and dispatch function
A container for git-global configuration options.
A git repository, represented by the full path to its base directory.
A report containing the results of a git-global subcommand.
Runs the appropriate git-global subcommand based on command line arguments.
Result alias with
GitGlobalError as the error type.
