Getting started

Webcreate\Vcs is build around a single interface, the VcsInterface. This interface contains methods to work with a version control system.

This libary currently contains two implementations of the interface: Svn and Git.

Lets say you want to get the latest commits from git. Here is an example:

// Example R1
use Webcreate\Vcs\Git;

$git = new Git('https://someserver/somerepo.git');

// Retrieve the 20 latest commits for master
$result = $git->log('.', null, 20);
foreach($result as $commit) {
    $date        = $commit->getDate();      // returns \DateTime instance
    $author      = $commit->getAuthor();    // returns "John Doe"
    $revision    = $commit->getRevision();  // returns "1a410efbd13591db07496601ebc7a059dd55cfe9"
    $message     = $commit->getMessage();   // returns "commit message"
