Build Status

Gitter allows you to interact in an object oriented manner with Git repositories via PHP. The main goal of the library is not to replace the system git command, but provide a coherent, stable and performatic object oriented interface.

Most commands are sent to the system's git command, parsed and then interpreted by Gitter. Everything is transparent to you, so you don't have to worry about a thing.

Gitter is very easy to use and you'll just need a few method calls to get started. For example, to create a new repository:

$client = new Gitter\Client;
$repository = $client->createRepository('/home/user/test');

Or a bare repository:

$client = new Gitter\Client;
$repository = $client->createRepository('/home/user/test', true);

Or to open an existing repository:

$client = new Gitter\Client;
$repository = $client->getRepository('/home/user/anothertest');

Both methods will return a Repository object, which has various methods that allow you to interact with that repository.

Getting a list of commits

Once you get hold of the Repository object, you can use:

$commits = $repository->getCommits();

To get a list of various commits.

Getting a single commit

Given a specific commit hash, you can find information about that commit:

$commit = $repository->getCommit('920be98a05');

Getting statistics for repository

Statistics aggregators can be added to the repository:

    new Gitter\Statistics\Contributors,
    new Gitter\Statistics\Date,
    new Gitter\Statistics\Day,
    new Gitter\Statistics\Hour
