Developing gitlib

If you plan to contribute to gitlib, here are few things you should know:

Documentation generation

Documentation is generated using Sphinx (restructured text). Configuration file is located in

You will need to fetch vendor modules for PHP blocks especially. If you really want to generate it, install the website project locally and hack into it.

Test against different git versions

A script is available in repository to test gitlib against many git versions.

This script is not usable on Travis-CI, they would hate me for this. It creates a local cache to avoid fetching from Github and compiling if already compiled.

Use it at your own risk, it’s still under experiment.
