On the user's first visit, default language from HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE
On the very first visit when no language preference cookie is set,
attempt to guess what the user wants from their HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE
setting from their browser. (Their OS language)
This will attempt to match the preferences in the order they're
specified by the browser, which should be the user's order of
For full language + country code preferences (eg en_US) it
will attempt to match the whole thing. For just language preferences
(eg en) it will match the first locale with that same language code.
Allow user to change language without explicitly clicking "Set"
language selection box, rather than having to also click "Set". It
removes the Set button also. Since this is done in the jQuery ready
event, there is a bit of time while the page is loading where the
onchange won't work and the set button will still be visible, then it'll
"disappear" when the page finishes loading. There's no good way around
This only adds the GET variable to do the switch, the UI option isn't
This parsing needs to be done really early because we need to do the
language switch/load before anything else happens... however I really
don't like parsing get variables so early in the index like this because
it's breaking the controller scheme that everything else uses. I may
not be able to get around that, but I'd at least like to clean it up and
maybe move this code out of the index into a function or something.
Allow setting owner, description, clone/push url metadata in the project array
This adds four new keys to the project array metadata:
'owner': overrides the owner of the project
'description': overrides the description of the project
'cloneurl': overrides the clone url of the project, can be an empty
string to explicitly remove the clone url
'pushurl': overrides the push url of the project, can be an empty string
to explicitly remove the push url
Add selection and diffing of arbitrary commits to shortlog
Currently this tries to minimize the footprint by only allowing
selection on the shortlog/log, and just uses an additional GET variable to
indicate the presence of a selection. The selection persists while
paging prev/next through the log/shortlog. The current selection is shown
abbreviated in the top link bar, with a commit link to allow the
cluttering the text by each commit (so we can avoid repeating commit
messages or hashes in the UI over and over), and allows the user to
clear the selection from wherever they are - so they could select
something, page through a couple pages, then decide they don't want the
selection anymore and clear it, without having to page back to the
selected commit to deselect it.
This disables or hides pretty much all links - shortlog, log, commit,
commitdiff, tree, snapshot, etc - for an empty project with no commits.
None of those actions make any sense if the project is empty. There are
still outstanding crashes if the user crafts a url manually to directly
access a page for a project, but since that won't happen nearly as often
it's not quite as high a priority.
This also extracts the nav links at the top of each page into a shared
template, so we only need to check if a commit exists in one place.
Some browsers don't properly determine the base url, when you use a
relative path in an href/src (eg "images/tooltip-loader.gif") - they
will treat slashes in a GET variable as a part of the actual path. So
when you have a URL like
(http://server/gitphp/index.php?p=php/gitphp.git), despite the slash in
the GET variable being escaped in the url, trying to load the images
path above resolves as
actual dirname of the instance, to give the loading img tags a full url.
Add support for tags pointing to other tag objects
Tags now store the object they point to and the commit separately. (For
tags pointing right to commits, the object and the commit are the same)
This keeps the object link working correctly by pointing to the direct
object (as opposed to dereferencing all the way down to the commit), so
you can use the object link to trace tagged tags all the way down to the
Also, the project and the tag list page now use the same tag listing
template fragment to make things easier.
The tree link by heads was passing the old style h=refs/heads/[head]
piece of the url, from the old version. It actually wasn't worth it to
implement the translation of the ref path to the tree object in the tree
controller, because we were already passing the hash of the head's HEAD
commit as the hashbase parameter (hb=) - in that case the tree
controller is already automatically looking up the tree for that
This addresses three issues:
1. Git stores trees as a hash of their content, which has nothing to do
with their name. Therefore, two different directories with the exact
same content but different names could end up pointing to the exact same
tree hash. This caused problems on the tree view, when it attempted to
look up the tree name by its hash - this is actually something you just
can't do reliably in git because of this system.
2. Previously, the tree view used the object cache when enumerating
items in the tree. However, because of the problem above, you could
have two copies of the same tree under two different names. Because the
object cache stores by reference, fetching and populating the tree with
data during its second appearance in the tree actually affected and
overwrote what was populated during its first appearance in the tree.
This happened during the model load, before the template was rendered,
so instead of showing the first instance and then the second instance,
it looked like the second instance appeared twice.
3. Previously the FilesystemObject class used a system where you would
assign the name to an object. This was a leftover from before it was
split out of the Tree object. Doing it this way meant there were
inconsistencies all over the place as far as what was being set for the
name - sometimes it was just the base file name, sometimes it was the
full file path, and every now and then it would have to be converted
back and forth.
Now, these are fixed:
1. Now, the f= parameter is taken as the source of truth and used to set
up the path for the tree/blob.
2. Now, the tree enumeration doesn't use the cache in order to prevent
3. Now, for consistency, the ability to set a name for a filesystem
object is removed. You can only set the full path now using SetPath,
SetName is removed. The name can still be fetched but it is
automatically derived as the base file name of the path.
The non-geshi blob output has a row for each line, which is even harder
to inject blame data into. It just made more sense to change the
non-geshi blob output to the same table structure as geshi, so one
Plus, it had the advantage of fixing the bug that made geshi introduce
this format in the first place - if you highlight code with your mouse,
the line numbers are no longer selected along with it in non-geshi view.
This changes the way projects are specified with categories in an array.
There is a new config file in the config directory, projects.conf.php,
where the projects are listed using the git_projects array. In order to
make the transition easier for upgrading users without breaking
everything when they upgrade, this will allow a fallback to the legacy
method. If the file projects.conf.php exists, it will read that using
the new array format. If it doesn't exist, it will continue to use the
legacy array format that was specified in the main gitphp.conf.php.
This change was necessary because the previous format was limited to
only a single piece of metadata for a project - one category as a
string. Now, with this format, an arbitrary amount of metadata can be
specified for any project - so future enhancements can take advantage of
this and it will be very easy to add extra metadata.
This uses PHP's standard syntax for specifying multidimensional arrays.
It is admittedly more complicated than the old method because you have
to get all the syntax with commas and array() declarations correct,
which may be difficult for non-PHP programmers. I considered doing an
actual config file parser; however since this file is loaded every
single time you load any page, I wanted it to be as lightweight as
possible, and nothing is more lightweight than PHP's native syntax.
