gitgo - the stupid git wrapper

The gitgo Node module makes it slightly easier to execute Git commands from Node. It's a one-off function that spawns a child process to run the Git command, returning a readable stream to expose feedback from Git.

var gitgo = require('gitgo')
var fs = require('fs')
var repo = 'git://'
var path = '/tmp/gitgo-' + Math.floor(Math.random() * (1 << 24))
gitgo(path, ['clone', repo]).pipe(process.stdout)
  • path Directory path to target repo
  • opts Array containing the git command to execute, followed by its options, e.g. ['add', '.']

The gitgo module exports a single function that returns a Readable Stream.
