NAME

App::GitHooks::Plugin::ForceBranchNamePattern - Require branch names to match a given pattern before they can be pushed to the origin.

DESCRIPTION

For example, if you define in your .githooksrc file the following:

        [ForceBranchNamePattern]
        branch_name_pattern = /^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$/

Then a branch named TestBranch can be pushed to the origin, but not one named test_branch.

A practical use of this plugin is making Puppet environment out of git branches, since Puppet environment names must be strictly alphanumeric.

VERSION

Version 1.1.3

MINIMUM GIT VERSION

This plugin relies on the pre-push hook, which is only available as of git v1.8.2.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

This plugin supports the following options in your .githooksrc file.

        project_prefixes = OPS, DEV
        
        [ForceBranchNamePattern]
        branch_name_pattern = /^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$/

project_prefixes

Optional, a comma-separated list of project prefixes in case you want to use them in the branch_name_pattern regex.

This setting must be added in the main section of your .githooksrc file, as it is used by multiple plugins.

        project_prefixes = OPS, DEV

branch_name_pattern

A regular expression that will be used to check branch names before allowing you to push them to the origin.

This setting must be added in the [ForceBranchNamePattern] section of your .githooksrc file.

        # Require alphanumeric branches only.
        branch_name_pattern = /^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$/

        # Require branches to start with a JIRA ticket ID followed by an underscore.
        branch_name_pattern = /^DEV-\d+_/

        # Require branches to start with a JIRA ticket ID followed by an underscore,
        # but they can have an optional user prefix.
        branch_name_pattern = /^(?:[^\/]+\/)?DEV-\d+_/

        # Re-use "project_prefixes" defined in the main section of the config.
        branch_name_pattern = /^$project_prefixes-\d+_/
