The GitHub Gem
This gem’ll work hand-in-hand with GitHub’s API to help you out.
Catch us in the #github room on freenode if you want to get involved. Or just fork and send a pull request.
$ gem install defunkt-github -s http://gems.github.com
Let’s say you just forked
github-gem on GitHub from defunkt.
$ git clone git://github.com/YOU/github-gem.git $ cd github-gem $ github pull defunkt
This will setup a remote and branch for defunkt’s repository at master. In this case, a ‘defunkt/master’ branch.
If defunkt makes some changes you want, simply
github pull defunkt. This will
leave you in the ‘defunkt/master’ branch after pulling changes from defunkt’s
remote. After confirming that defunkt’s changes were what you wanted, run
checkout master and then
git merge defunkt/master to merge defunkt’s changes
into your own master branch. In summary:
$ github pull defunkt $ git checkout master $ git merge defunkt/master
If you’ve already reviewed defunkt’s changes and just want to merge them into your
master branch, use the
$ github pull –merge defunkt
