smithy (n) A blacksmith's shop; a forge.
Smithy is a web frontend for git repositories. It's implemented entirely in Golang, compiles to a single binary, and it's fast and easy to deploy. Smithy is an alternative to cgit or gitweb, and doesn't seek to compete with Gitea and the like.
- Single binary
- Easy to deploy
- Free software
The only dependency is Golang 1.15 or higher. Contributors to smithy should have the optional scdoc for generating documentation.
$ git clone https://github.com/honza/smithy $ make $ ./smithy --help
We provide a make rule for installing/uninstall smithy. It will also install a sample configuration file at
/usr/local/share/smithy/smithy.yml that you can later use as a guide.
$ make install $ make uninstall
You can generate a sample configuration by issuing
make smithy.yml command or directly using the smithy binary:
$ make smithy.yml # will generate a smithy.yml file $ smithy generate > config.yml $ smithy serve --config config.yml
A sample configuration can be:
title: Smithy, a lightweight git forge description: Publish your git repositories with ease port: 3456 git: root: "/var/www/git" repos: - path: "some-cool-project" slug: "some-cool-project" title: "Some Cool Project" description: "Something really cool to change the world" - path: "ugly-hacks" exclude: true static: root: prefix: /static/ templates: dir:
Customizing templates and css
Out of the box, smithy bundles templates and css in the binary. Setting
templates.dir to empty string will cause smithy to use the bundled assets.
If you'd like to customize the templates or the css, copy the
include directory somewhere, and then set
templates.dir to that directory.
Smithy is currently hosting itself on my domain.
