Config object will be something like:

{ core:
   { repositoryformatversion: '0',
     filemode: true,
     bare: false,
     logallrefupdates: true,
     ignorecase: true,
     precomposeunicode: true },

API

parse

Asynchronously parse a .git/config file. If only the callback is passed, the .git/config file relative to process.cwd() is used.

Params

  • options {Object|String|Function}: Options with cwd or path, the cwd to use, or the callback function.
  • callback {Function}: callback function if the first argument is options or cwd.
  • returns {Object}

Example

parse(function(err, config) {
  if (err) throw err;
  // do stuff with config
});

.sync

Parse the given

Params

  • options {Object|String}: Options with cwd or path, or the cwd to use.
  • returns {Object}

Example

parse.promise({ path: '/path/to/.gitconfig' })
  .then(config => console.log(config));

.sync

Synchronously parse a .git/config file. If no arguments are passed, the .git/config file relative to process.cwd() is used.

Params

  • options {Object|String}: Options with cwd or path, or the cwd to use.
  • returns {Object}

Example

const config = parse.sync();

.expandKeys

Returns an object with only the properties that had ini-style keys converted to objects.

Params

  • config {Object}: The parsed git config object.
  • returns {Object}

Example

const config = parse.sync({ path: '/path/to/.gitconfig' });
const obj = parse.expandKeys(config);

.keys examples

Converts ini-style keys into objects:

Example 1

const parse = require('parse-git-config');
const config = { 
  'foo "bar"': { doStuff: true },
  'foo "baz"': { doStuff: true } 
};
 
console.log(parse.keys(config));

Results in:

{ 
  foo: { 
    bar: { doStuff: true }, 
    baz: { doStuff: true } 
  } 
}

Example 2

const parse = require('parse-git-config');
const config = {
  'remote "origin"': { 
    url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert/normalize-pkg.git',
    fetch: '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*' 
  },
  'branch "master"': { 
    remote: 'origin', 
    merge: 'refs/heads/master' 
  },
  'branch "dev"': { 
    remote: 'origin', 
    merge: 'refs/heads/dev', 
    rebase: true 
  }
};
 
console.log(parse.keys(config));

Results in:

{
  remote: {
    origin: {
      url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert/normalize-pkg.git',
      fetch: '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*'
    }
  },
  branch: {
    master: {
      remote: 'origin',
      merge: 'refs/heads/master'
    },
    dev: {
      remote: 'origin',
      merge: 'refs/heads/dev',
      rebase: true
