Why
gitsome
?

The Git Command Line

Although the standard Git command line is a great tool to manage your Git-powered repos, it can be tough to remember the usage of:

  • 150+ porcelain and plumbing commands
  • Countless command-specific options
  • Resources such as tags and branches

The Git command line does not integrate with GitHub, forcing you to toggle between command line and browser.

gitsome
- A Supercharged Git/GitHub CLI With Autocomplete

gitsome
aims to supercharge your standard git/shell interface by focusing on:
  • Improving ease-of-use
  • Increasing productivity

Deep GitHub Integration

Not all GitHub workflows work well in a terminal;

gitsome
attempts to target those that do.

gitsome
includes 29 GitHub integrated commands that work with ALL shells:
$ gh  [param] [options]

Run

gh
commands along with Git-Extras and hub commands to unlock even more GitHub integrations!

Imgur

Git and GitHub Autocompleter With Interactive Help

You can run the optional shell:

 $ gitsome

to enable autocompletion and interactive help for the following:

Imgur

Imgur

General Autocompleter

gitsome
autocompletes the following:
  • Shell commands
  • Files and directories
  • Environment variables
  • Man pages
  • Python

To enable additional autocompletions, check out the Enabling Bash Completions section.

Imgur

Fish-Style Auto-Suggestions

gitsome
supports Fish-style auto-suggestions. Use the
right arrow
key to complete a suggestion.

Imgur

Python REPL

gitsome
is powered by
xonsh
, which supports a Python REPL.

Run Python commands alongside shell commands:

Imgur

Additional

xonsh
features can be found in the
xonsh tutorial
.

Command History

gitsome
keeps track of commands you enter and stores them in
~/.xonsh_history.json
. Use the up and down arrow keys to cycle through the command history.

Imgur

Customizable Highlighting

You can control the ansi colors used for highlighting by updating your

~/.gitsomeconfig
file.

Color options include:

'black', 'red', 'green', 'yellow',
'blue', 'magenta', 'cyan', 'white'

For no color, set the value(s) to

None
.
white
can appear as light gray on some terminals.

Imgur

Available Platforms

gitsome
is available for Mac, Linux, Unix, Windows, and Docker.

TODO

Not all GitHub workflows work well in a terminal;

gitsome
attempts to target those that do.
  • Add additional GitHub API integrations

gitsome
is just getting started. Feel free to contribute!

with other utilities such as Git-Extras.

Installation

Pip Installation

PyPI version PyPI

gitsome
is hosted on PyPI. The following command will install
gitsome
:
$ pip3 install gitsome

You can also install the latest

gitsome
from GitHub source which can contain changes not yet pushed to PyPI:
$ pip3 install git+https://github.com/donnemartin/gitsome.git

If you are not installing in a

virtualenv
, you might need to run with
sudo
:
$ sudo pip3 install gitsome

pip3

Depending on your setup, you might also want to run

pip3
with the
-H flag
:
$ sudo -H pip3 install gitsome

For most linux users,

pip3
can be installed on your system using the
python3-pip
package.

For example, Ubuntu users can run:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip

See this ticket for more details.

Virtual Environment Installation

You can install Python packages in a

virtualenv
to avoid potential issues with dependencies or permissions.

If you are a Windows user or if you would like more details on

virtualenv
, check out this guide.

Install

virtualenv
and
virtualenvwrapper
:
$ pip3 install virtualenv
$ pip3 install virtualenvwrapper
$ export WORKON_HOME=~/.virtualenvs
$ source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh

Create a

gitsome
virtualenv
and install
gitsome
:
$ mkvirtualenv gitsome
$ pip3 install gitsome

If the

pip
install does not work, you might be running Python 2 by default. Check what version of Python you are running:
$ python --version

If the call above results in Python 2, find the path for Python 3:

$ which python3  # Python 3 path for mkvirtualenv's --python option

Install Python 3 if needed. Set the Python version when calling

mkvirtualenv
:
$ mkvirtualenv --python [Python 3 path from above] gitsome
$ pip3 install gitsome

If you want to activate the

gitsome
virtualenv
again later, run:
$ workon gitsome

To deactivate the

gitsome
virtualenv
, run:
$ deactivate

Running as a Docker Container

You can run gitsome in a Docker container to avoid installing Python and

pip3
locally. To install Docker check out the official Docker documentation.

Once you have docker installed you can run gitsome:

$ docker run -ti --rm mariolet/gitsome

You can use Docker volumes to let gitsome access your working directory, your local .gitsomeconfig and .gitconfig:

$ docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/src/              \
   -v ${HOME}/.gitsomeconfig:/root/.gitsomeconfig  \
   -v ${HOME}/.gitconfig:/root/.gitconfig          \
   mariolet/gitsome

If you are running this command often you will probably want to define an alias:

$ alias gitsome="docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/src/              \
                  -v ${HOME}/.gitsomeconfig:/root/.gitsomeconfig  \
                  -v ${HOME}/.gitconfig:/root/.gitconfig          \
                  mariolet/gitsome"

To build the Docker image from sources:

$ git clone https://github.com/donnemartin/gitsome.git
$ cd gitsome
$ docker build -t gitsome .

Starting the
gitsome
Shell

Once installed, run the optional

gitsome
autocompleter with interactive help:
$ gitsome

Running the optional

gitsome
shell will provide you with autocompletion, interactive help, fish-style suggestions, a Python REPL, etc.

Running
gh
Commands

Run GitHub-integrated commands:

$ gh  [param] [options]

Note: Running the

gitsome
shell is not required to execute
gh
commands. After installing
gitsome
you can run
gh
commands from any shell.

Running the
gh configure
Command

To properly integrate with GitHub,

gitsome
must be properly configured:
$ gh configure

For GitHub Enterprise Users

Run with the

-e/--enterprise
flag:
$ gh configure -e

View more details in the gh configure section.

Enabling Bash Completions

By default,

gitsome
looks at the following locations to enable bash completions.

To add additional bash completions, update the

~/.xonshrc
file with the location of your bash completions.

If

~/.xonshrc
does not exist, create it:
$ touch ~/.xonshrc

For example, if additional completions are found in

/usr/local/etc/my_bash_completion.d/completion.bash
, add the following line in
~/.xonshrc
:
$BASH_COMPLETIONS.append('/usr/local/etc/my_bash_completion.d/completion.bash')

You will need to restart

gitsome
for the changes to take effect.

Enabling
gh
Tab Completions Outside of
gitsome

You can run

gh
commands outside of the
gitsome
shell completer. To enable
gh
tab completions for this workflow, copy the
gh_complete.sh
file locally.

Let bash know completion is available for the

gh
command within your current session:
$ source /path/to/gh_complete.sh

To enable tab completion for all terminal sessions, add the following to your

bashrc
file:
source /path/to/gh_complete.sh

Reload your

bashrc
:
$ source ~/.bashrc

Tip:

.
is the short form of
source
, so you can run this instead:
$ . ~/.bashrc

For Zsh Users

zsh
includes a module which is compatible with bash completions.

Download the

gh_complete.sh
file as above and append the following to your

.zshrc
:
autoload bashcompinit
bashcompinit
source /path/to/gh_complete.sh

Reload your

zshrc
:
 $ source ~/.zshrc

Optional: Installing
PIL
or
Pillow

Displaying the avatar for the

gh me
and
gh user
commands will require installing the optional
PIL
or
Pillow
dependency.

Windows* and Mac:

$ pip3 install Pillow

*See the Windows Support section for limitations on the avatar.

Ubuntu users, check out these instructions on askubuntu

Supported Python Versions

  • Python 3.4

.

Although you can use the standard Windows command prompt, you'll probably have a better experience with either cmder or conemu.

Imgur

Text Only Avatar

The commands

gh user
and
gh me
will always have the

-t/--text_avatar
flag enabled, since
img2txt
does not support the ansi avatar on Windows.

On Windows, the

.gitsomeconfig
file can be found in
%userprofile%
. For example:
C:\Users\dmartin\.gitsomeconfig

Developer Installation

If you're interested in contributing to

gitsome
, run the following commands:
$ git clone https://github.com/donnemartin/gitsome.git
$ cd gitsome
$ pip3 install -e .
$ pip3 install -r requirements-dev.txt
$ gitsome
$ gh  [param] [options]

pip3

If you get an error while installing saying that you need Python 3.4+, it could be because your

pip
