This is a very simple git client based on libgit2 with AmigaOS being the
major target operating system. However, other platforms are equally
important as this eases testing.


The program is currently called sgit to differentiate it from the
standard git command. If you start the sgit executable without any
arguments, a list of all supported commands will be printed. Note that
even if a command is listed there, it it likely a very crippled verison
of the original version.

The AmigaOS version of SimpleGit uses a statically linked OpenSSL
version. Even if it is not recommended in the general case, you can use
the GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY environment variable to skip the SSL verification.
E.g., enter

     1.> setenv GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY 1
     1.> sgit clone simplemail

to clone and the SimpleMail repository into the simplemail folder
ignoring any SSL relatated problems.

Generally note that this is software is in a very preliminary state. It
may be not usable at all in terms of functions it provides but also in
terms of bugs it contains. Consider it as a prototype and use it at your
own risk.

To display diff in color the normal sgit diff --color command can be
used. But if the output does not look good for you in the AmigaDOS
console, you can use the gitdiff script instead. Make sure it has the
Executable and Script bit set, and exists in the path. Edit the E[47m
and E[45m entries to your liking. Ref:
The script uses sed which is part of the SDK.

Building SimpleGit for AmigaOS

Currently, it only is possible to compile SimpleGit via a cross compiler
and CMake. See or how to get the cross compiler

Once everything is set up, building SimpleGit is as easy as typing

     $ make -f makefile.aos4

in the shell command prompt. Snapshot builds are available from That site's SHA1
fingerprint is
56 C7 52 5C 26 DB CE 89 AF 1D 20 EC AE 30 96 E8 88 D5 5B CA.

Building SimpleGit for other platforms

Among other stuff, CMake is needed to build the tool. Then type

     $ git submodule init
     $ git submodule update
     $ make

Testing on other platforms

If you want to test git2 with the tests of the original git, run:

     $ make test

on a POSIX-compatible operating system. This can take a lot of time (it
compiles git and then launch thousands of tests). As we are using the
git test framework, nearly all what can be done with git test can be
done with our test base (i.e. set GIT_SKIP_TESTS or GIT_TEST_OPTS).

You can run a particular test by giving its name:

     $ make -C tests


Its code base derived from (thanks to
Vincent van Ravesteijn and Motiejus Jak¨tys), from which it was forked
to It was then forked by
Chris Young to, which is the direct
parent of SimpleGit.

It is currently developed at with being a mirror. The
sources contains work from the examples included within libgit2.

Thanks for testing
