Nice. I made something like that a while ago - also in Bash, but with more features and only with GitHub support.
That is really nice! I like the idea of adding tests, I may try doing that too!
That was the fun part of building it. Everyone should write their own testing library in Bash ;-)
Awesome that this looks like it supports both github and bitbucket. If you are only using github take a look at hub which provides a facade over git and adds a bunch of github related features like hub browse which will open the current repo in the browser.
Yes, it works on both, github and bitbucket and I will test with gitlab. I will take a look at hub, thanks for sharing.
Although my idea is to keep git-open as simples as possible, maybe I will take some ideas and implement them =)
Wish git had this built in.
Probably never will because git is and should be agnostic to what you’re actually using to host the repositories (git != github). There are a number of facaded on top of git (hub for github for example) that act as a pass through for git commands and add extra functionality on top. In my opinion thats the best way to do that sort of thing.
You are correct, I wasn’t thinking of that, they will not accept it.
It can make a best guess though and try to translate a git:// url into a http(s). Many git servers also serve a website. Git could even have a config variable for the url to use.
Sure it could but that can be said about pretty much anything. The unix philosophy is to have software that is minimalist and does its own job extremely well which I believe that Linus and git are looking to follow. Adding a facade on top of git give the most flexibility and keeps the core application as specific as possible so it can just focus on doing that one thing very well.
Yes! A friend of mine told me to make a pull-request to github and see if they accept it =)
