PyGitUp |Version| |Build Status| |Coverage Status|

|PyGitUp|_ is a Python port of aanand/git-up <https://github.com/aanand/git-up/>__. It not only fully covers the abilities of git-up and should be a drop-in replacement, but also extends it slightly.

.. |PyGitUp| replace:: PyGitUp .. _PyGitUp: https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp

Why use git up?

git pull has two problems:

* It merges upstream changes by default, when it's really more polite to `rebase
  over them <http://gitready.com/advanced/2009/02/11/pull-with-rebase.html>`__,
  unless your collaborators enjoy a commit graph that looks like bedhead.

* It only updates the branch you're currently on, which means git push will
  shout at you for being behind on branches you don't particularly care about
  right now.

Why use the Python port?

I wasn't able to use the original git-up, because I didn't want to install a whole Ruby suite just for git-up and even with Ruby installed, there were some problems running on my Windows machine. So, my reasons for writing and using this port are:

  1. Windows support.
  2. Written in Python ;)

How do I install it?

  1. Install git-up via pip <https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing.html>__: $ pip install git-up
  2. cd to your project's directory.
  3. Run git up and enjoy!

Note for Windows users:


See `these instructions <http://stackoverflow.com/q/4750806/997063>`__
for installing pip, if you haven't already installed it. And don't forget
to either:

- make your ``Python/Scripts`` and ``Python/Lib/site-packages`` writable for
  you,
- run ``pip`` with admin privileges
- or use ``pip install --user git-up`` and add ``%APPDATA%/Python/Scripts``
  to ``%PATH%``.

Otherwise pip will refuse to install ``git-up`` due to ``Access denied`` errors.

Python version compatibility:

Python 3.6 and upwards are supported :)

Options and Configuration

Command Line Arguments


- ``git up -h`` shows a help message.

- ``git up --quiet`` suppresses all output except for error messages.

- ``git up --no-fetch`` skips fetching the remote and rebases all local branches.

- ``git up --version`` shows the current version and optionally checks for
  updates (see below).

Configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To configure ``PyGitUp``, you can set options in your git config. Run
``git config [--global] git-up.[name] [value]`` to set one of these
options:

-  ``git-up.fetch.prune [*true*|false]``: If set to ``true``,
   ``PyGitUp`` will append the ``--prune``\ option to ``git fetch`` and
   thus remove any remote tracking branches which no longer exist on
   the remote (see `git fetch
   --help <http://linux.die.net/man/1/git-fetch>`__).

-  ``git-up.fetch.all [true|*false*]``: If set to ``false``, ``PyGitUp``
   will only fetch remotes for which there is at least one local
   tracking branch. Setting this option will make ``git up`` always fetch
   from all remotes, which is useful if e.g. you use a remote to push to
   your CI system but never check those branches out.

- ``git-up.push.auto [true|*false*]``: Push the current branch after
  rebasing and fast-forwarding.

- ``git-up.push.all [true|*false*]``: Push all branches when auto-pushing.

- ``git-up.push.tags [true|*false*]``: Push tags when auto-pushing.

-  ``git-up.rebase.arguments [string]``: If set, ``PyGitUp`` will use
   this string as additional arguments when calling ``git rebase``.
   Example: ``--preserve-merges`` to recreate merge commits in the
   rebased branch.

-  ``git-up.rebase.auto [*true*|false]``: If set to ``false``,
   ``PyGitUp`` won't rebase your branches for you but notify you that
   they diverged. This can be useful if you have a lot of in-progress
   work that you don't want to deal with at once, but still want to
   update other branches.

-  ``git-up.rebase.log-hook [cmd]``: Runs ``cmd`` every time a branch
   is rebased or fast-forwarded, with the old head as ``$1`` and the new
   head as ``$2``. This can be used to view logs or diffs of incoming
   changes. Example:
   ``echo "changes on $1:"; git log --oneline --decorate $1..$2``.

- ``git-up.rebase.show-hashes [true|*false*]``: If set to ``true``,
  ``PyGitUp`` will show the hashes of the current commit (or the point
  where the rebase starts) and the target commit like ``git pull`` does.

New in v1.0.0:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- ``git-up.updates.check [*true*|false]``: When running ``git up --version``,
  it shows the version number and checks for updates. If you feel
  uncomfortable with it, just set it to ``false`` to turn off the checks.

v1.1.1 (*2013-10-07*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Fix for `#7 <https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp/issues/7>`__
  (AttributeError: 'GitUp' object has no attribute 'git') introduced by
  v1.1.0.

v1.1.0 (*2013-10-07*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Prior to v1.1.0, ``PyGitUp`` tried to guess the upstream branch for a local
  branch by looking for a branch on any remote with the same name. With v1.1.0,
  ``PyGitUp`` stops guessing and uses the upstream branch config instead.

  This by the way fixes issue `#6 <https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp/issues/6>`__
  (``git up`` doesn't work with local only branches).

  **Note:**
  This change may break setups, where a local branch accidentally has
  the same name as a remote branch without any tracking information set. Prior
  to v1.1.0, ``git up`` would still fetch and rebase from the remote branch.
  If you run into troubles with such a setup, setting tracking information
  using ``git branch -u <remote>/<remote branch> <local branch>`` should help.

- 3rd party dependencies have been updated.

- Allows to run ``git up --version`` from non-git dirs, too.

v1.0.0 (*2013-09-05*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally ``PyGitUp`` reaches 1.0.0. You can consider it stable now :)

- Added a comprehensive test suite, now with a coverage of about 90%.
- Lots of code cleanup.
- Added option ``-h`` to display a help screen (``--help`` **won't** work, because
  ``git`` catches this option and handles it before ``PyGitUp`` can do).
- Added option ``--version`` to show, what version of ``PyGitUp`` is running.
  Also checks for updates (can be disabled, see configuration).
- Added option ``--quiet`` to be quiet and only display error messages.

v0.2.3 (*2013-06-05*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Fixed issue `#4 <https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp/issues/4>`__ (ugly
  exception if remote branch has been deleted).

v0.2.2 (*2013-05-04*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Fixed issue `#3 <https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp/issues/3>`__ (didn't
  return to previous branch).


v0.2.1 (*2013-03-18*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Fixed problem: check-bundler.rb has not been installed when installing via
  PyPI (problems with setup.py).

v0.2 (*2013-03-18*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- Incorporated `aanand/git-up#41 <https://github
  .com/aanand/git-up/pull/41>`__: Support for ``bundle install --local`` and
  ``rbenv rehash``.
- Fixed issue `#1 <https://github.com/msiemens/PyGitUp/issues/1>`__ (strange
  output buffering when having multiple remotes to fetch from).
- Some under-the-hood improvements.

v0.1 (*2013-03-14*)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
