My git server setup

So after having problems with gitlab.com (not being able to push to your own repository for example). I decided to have a very simple git setup, inspired by git.linkmauve.fr. I putted all my git repos into /git.

started with just nginx and ssh

This one is dead-simple when you know the trick, simply put git update-server-info into hooks/post-update or hooks/post-receive of your git repo (they have to be bare repo, that’s done with --bare)

Added git-daemon

That one was even more simple, just had to point to where the git repositories are stored

Wanted a better interface

While searching for alternatives to GNU I saw stagit, a static git generator (I don’t like CGI, specially when it could have access to my git repos), to use it I added theses lines to the post-update-hook

cd "$(pwd | sed s/.git$//)" && stagit -c "$repo.cache" "$repo"
cd /git && stagit-index *.git > /git/index.html

Garbage Collector

It’s not like my repos were getting big, git is supposed to do that itself but it seems like it doesn’t, so I’m doing git gc each time, which isn’t very optimised.

Final Hook code (deploy, stagit, …)

This can be seen in my /git/utils repo, in the git-hooks folder.

Also the blog is a symlink to /git/blog.work which are the raw files done by that hook.
