Git made easy
The easiest way to use git. On any platform. Anywhere.
Git is known for being a versatile distributed source control system that is a staple of many individuals, communities, and even for the City of Chattanooga to crowd source bicycle parking locations. However, it is not known for userfriendlyness or easy learning curve.
Ungit is to bring user friendliness to git without sacrificing versatility of git.
Quick intro to ungit: http://youtu.be/hkBVAi3oKvo
npm install -g ungit
NOTE: If your system requires root access to install global npm packages, make sure you use the -H flag:
sudo -H npm install -g ungit
Anywhere you want to start, just type:
This will launch the server and open up a browser with the ui.
Put a configuration file called .ungitrc in your home directory (
/home/USERNAME on *nix,
C:/Users/USERNAME/ on windows). Can be in either json or ini format. See source/config.js for available options.
You can also override configuration variables at launch by specifying them as command line arguments;
ungit --port=8080. To disable boolean features use --no:
~/.ungitrc configuration file to change default port and enable bugtracking:
If you have your own merge tool that you would like to use, such as Kaleidoscope or p4merge, you can configure ungit to use it. See MERGETOOL.md.
Plugins are installed by simply placing them in the Ungit plugin directory (
~/.ungit/plugins by default), and then restarting Ungit.
There's a guide in the PLUGINS.md file on how to write new plugins.
Ungit will watch git directory recursively upon page view and automatically refresh contents on git operations or changes on files that are not configured to be ignored in
One caveat is that node's
recursive: true option is only available in Mac and Windows. For non Mac and Windows machines, git operations will be automatically refreshed but file changes may require manual refreshes as
fs.watch() is unable to detect changes within nested directory hierarchy.
