RUGS - RUby Git Setup

A helper script that makes setting up remote git repositories a snap.

WARNING: This is still alpha so use it at your own risk!

Note: I don't use alpha/beta in the version numbers until I have a first real release because of how Ruby Gems handles them.

What is it?

RUGS has three main functions:

  • Creates a local git repository and directory structure using default templates or ones you create.

  • Sets up a remote repository to mirror your local one.

  • Adds a framework of git hooks allowing you to store and run your own hooks in directly from the repo.

RUGS makes creating remote repos as simple as `rugs create repo_name on server_name`.

RUGS even allows you to automatically embed your Git hooks in the repo itself. No more jumping through hoops to make sure your hooks are maintained with your project; with RUGS you just store your hook scripts in the `git_hooks` directory and they're automatically updated and run. \

Once you've set up your project using RUGS you just use Git as you normally would with the exception of your hooks being the in `git_hooks` directory.
