Rebuilding Git-Rails




Install Git



On linux, install git-core using your favorite package management tool should do it.



On Mac OS, using Mac Port:

sudo port install git-core

clone the repositoty



git clone git://gitorious.org/git-rails/mainline.git

Make sure all the specs pass:



spec spec

I’m not sure why rake does not see the task and I’ll fix this shortly

Then have at it!



And to do a local install and try it out:

rake install

And uninstall

rake uninstall

git-rails uses hoe, so you have a lot more commands available


Share



Then once you have something you think would benefit others, create a clone and share it!

Git-Rails




git-rails is a simple tool to help manage your rails app with git.



Currently, it provides 3 helpful commands:

Init

Also creates a .gitignore file with:

log/*.log
tmp/**/*
.DS_Store
public/cache/**/*
doc/api
doc/app

Example

git-rails init -m "message" -c git@gitorious.org:rur/mainline.git




Install



Installs a plugin (managed by git) from a remote git repository

Example

git-rails install git://gitorious.org/rur/mainline.git plugin-name




Update



Updates a plugin from original source

Example

git-rails update rur



Getting started



gem install git-rails

Helping out
