gitgitr - Automatically fetch and build the most recent git.
gitgitr -- fetches and builds the most recent version of git gitgitr -t -- fetches and builds the most recent version of git, and runs the test suite prior to installation gitgitr -v 1.8.0 -- fetches and builds version 1.8.0 of git
gitgitr is a tiny utility to simplify building the most recent (or, really, any arbitrary) version of
git. This is something you probably only really need if you're obsessive about running the most recent version of
git, or if you maintain something like Git::Wrapper, where the ability to quickly install a particular
git version comes up way more often than you would like.
Displays basically the same information you're currently soaking in.
/opt/git to the new build directory
Installation prefix for the current build. Defaults to
gitgitr will not build a version that's already installed. This flag will force it to build a version even if it is already preset.
gitgitr run the
git test suite after building and before installing. If the test suite fails, the build will not be installed. Disabled by default because the test suite takes a really long time to run.
gitgitr be a lot more chatty about what it's doing
Specifies what version of
git to build. Defaults to the most recent version as found on the front page of http://git-scm.com
