A pair of git hooks for emulating receive.denyCurrentBranch=updateInstead on older git versions (MIT)
These two git hooks could be placed in your (remote) repository's `hooks` directory to emulate the behavior of
receive.denyCurrentBranch=updateInstead on older versions of git that don't support that option for that setting.
Make sure both are executable, and don't put any file extensions on them.
These hooks are licensed under the MIT license (found in the `~LICENSE` file).
#!/bin/sh
#
# A post-receive hook that simply updates the working directory
#
# Clear pesky variables:
unset GIT_DIR
unset GIT_WORK_TREE
cd .. # Change to repo root
# Update the working directory:
git reset --hard HEAD
#!/bin/sh
#
# A pre-receive hook for emulating receive.denyCurrentBranch=updateInstead on older
# git versions. I have used it on version 1.7.1.
#
# This script aborts the receive if there are local unsaved changes in the repository.
#
# Remove pesky environment variables
unset GIT_DIR
unset GIT_WORK_TREE
cd .. # Change dir to the repo root
# Check that the denyCurrentBranch setting is 'ignore'
dcb=$(git config --get receive.denyCurrentBranch)
if [ "$dcb" != "ignore" ]; then
echo 'WARNING: Your receive.denyCurrentBranch config value is not set to "ignore".'
fi
# Check for unsaved local changes
if ! git diff-index --quiet HEAD -- ; then
echo "There are unsaved changes in the remote worktree."
exit 1
else
exit 0
fi
