Discern information about git and github urls.

$ npm install discern

For a folder that represents a github url, this will attempt to return the "origin" remote. On failure, it returns null.

Takes a github url with the optional extension of using #branch-name on the end to denote a branch/tag/commit. It returns an array containing [user, repo, branch] where branch defaults to master. This can be used to build the GitHub url, a url to the tarball etc. etc.

Currently just a pass through, but the aim will be to get git urls as close as possible to some normal form. In particular, it should do the work required by npm's addRemoteGit

Returns true if the url has a protocol of 'git:', 'git+http:', 'git+https:', 'git+rsync:', 'git+ftp:', 'git+ssh:' or path ending in '.git'.

Returns false otherwise.

Returns true if the url is a gist.github.com url, otherwise false.

Returns true if the url is a github.com url, otherwise false.
