The git package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

A Haskell implementation of git storage operations, allowing users to manipulate git repositories (read and write).

This implementation is fully interoperable with the main C implementation.

This is strictly only manipulating the git store (what's inside the .git directory), and doesn't do anything with the index or your working directory files.

Build Status BSD Haskell

git is a reimplementation of git storage and protocol in pure haskell.

what it does do:

  • read loose objects, and packed objects.
  • write new loose objects
  • git like operations available: commit, cat-file, verify-pack, rev-list, ls-tree.

what is doesn't do:

  • reimplement the whole of git.
  • checkout's index reading/writing, fetching, merging, diffing.
