     5== WebKit Script support for Git ==
     6
     7The various scripts in WebKitTools/Scripts have been made to work pretty well with Git.  Here are some
     8of the specific things you can do with them:
     9
     10 * Telling the various scripts to '''append the git branch name to every build'''.  This is especially useful so you don't clobber your previous branch's build when you switch branches
     11{{{
     12  git config core.webKitBranchBuild (true|false) //the default is off
     13}}}
     14 * Overriding the core.webKitBranchBuild setting for a specific branch
     15{{{
     16  git config branch.$branchName.webKitBranchBuild (true|false)
     17}}}
     18 * Using '''prepare-Changelog''' with git
     19{{{
     20  WebKitTools/Scripts/prepare-Changelog --git-commit=$committish --git-reviewer="Foo Reviewer"
     21}}}
     22 * Using '''resolve-ChangeLog''' with git
     23{{{
     24  PLEASE FILL ME IN
     25}}}
     26 * Using '''commit-log-editor''' with git
     27{{{

     29}}}
     30
     31== Misc. Tips and Tricks ==
     32 * You can setup '''Git shell completion and branch name in your bash prompt.'''  In your /path/to/git/source/contrib/completion directory you will find a 'git-completion.bash' file.  Follow the instructions in that file to enable shell completion.  Here is a nice bash prompt for instance
     33{{{
     34PS1='\[\033[41;1;37m\]\u@\h:\[\033[40;1;33m\]\W$(__git_ps1 " (%s)")>\[\033[0m\] '
     35}}}
     36 * You can set up '''multiple working directories to work on more than one branch at a time.'''  In your /path/to/git/source/contrib/workdir directory you will find a 'git-new-workdir' script that can create new working directories.  The usage is
     37{{{
     38./git-new-workdir <repository> <new_workdir> [<branch>]
     39}}}
     40 * Colorize various git commands
     41{{{
     42git config --global color.status auto
     43git config --global color.diff auto
     44git config --global color.branch auto
     45}}}
     46
     47 * Important git config settings
     48{{{
     49git config --global user.name "Foo Bar"
     50git config --global user.email "foo@webkit.org"
     51}}}
