Version Control.

This is an open series in which Hacker Public Radio Listeners can share their knowledge and experience of version or revision control systems such as Bazaar, Mercurial, Subversion, CVS and Git.

A sample post-receive git hook:


foreach arg ( $< )
  set argv = ( $arg )
  set refname = $1

set branch = `git rev-parse --symbolic --abbrev-ref $refname`
echo $branch

    if ( "$branch" == "master" ) then
      echo "Branch detected: master"
      echo "Do some stuff here."
    else if ( "$branch" == "dev" ) then
      echo "Branch detected: dev"
      echo "Do something else here."
        echo "Do something entirely different here."
