This library provides methods to access Git repository from PHP 5.6+.

It makes shell calls, which makes it less performant than any solution.

Anyway, it's convenient and don't need to build anything to use it. That's how we love it.

Quick Start

You can install gitlib using Composer. Simply require the version you need:

$ composer require gitonomy/gitlib

or edit your composer.json file by hand:

    "require": {
        "gitonomy/gitlib": "^1.3"

Example Usage


use Gitonomy\Git\Repository;

$repository = new Repository('/path/to/repository');

foreach ($repository->getReferences()->getBranches() as $branch) {
    echo '- '.$branch->getName().PHP_EOL;

$repository->run('fetch', ['--all']);
