Web-based viewer for git

I’ve been looking for a simple to set up viewer for git that would list out all the git repositories that I have on my git server.  It took a bit of a search and I finally discovered viewgit.  So far, I’ve found it pretty nice.  Setting up viewgit is very simple.

Download the tarball from sourceforge.  Extract it to your htdocs or www folder.  Make a copy of example-localconfig.php and rename it as localconfig.php.  Comment out the line $conf['projects'] and uncomment $conf['projects_glob'] = array('/path/to/repo/); . If like me, you store all your git repos in one folder, this is the best viewer for the amount of work I’ve had to do. Maybe I should write about how to store git repos in one folder. A story for tomorrow!
