demonstration documentation A PHP API to get infos and manage a GIT distant or local repository.


Working with a local repository clone:

// open a repo
$local_repo = ~/repositories/git-api
$repo = \GitApi\GitApi::open($local_repo)

// commiters list

// branches list

// commits list

// current branch

// description

// tags list

// last commit infos

// tree

// tree for first dir
$repo->getTree('HEAD', $first_dir)

// files info

// recursive tree

// commits history

Working with a distant repository URL will create a local clone:

// create a clone of a distant repo in a local dir
// if the local clone already exists, a `git pull` will be processed on it
$distant_repo =
$local_repo = ~/repositories/git-api
$repo = \GitApi\GitApi::create($local_repo, $distant_repo)

// ... same as above
