This will let you identify and transform various git hosts URLs between protocols. It also can tell you what the URL is for the raw path for particular file for direct access without git.
var hostedGitInfo = require("hosted-git-info")
var info = hostedGitInfo.fromUrl("firstname.lastname@example.org:npm/hosted-git-info.git")
/* info looks like:
If the URL can’t be matched with a git host,
null will be returned. We
can match git, ssh and https urls. Additionally, we can match ssh connect
email@example.com:npm/hosted-git-info) and shortcuts (eg,
github:npm/hosted-git-info). Github specifically, is detected in the case
of a third, unprefixed, form:
If it does match, the returned object has properties of:
And methods of:
Given the path of a file relative to the repository, returns a URL for
directly fetching it from the githost. If no committish was set then
master will be used as the default.
Returns the default output type. The default output type is based on the string you passed in to be parsed
Uses the getDefaultRepresentation to call one of the other methods to get a URL for
this resource. As such
hostedGitInfo.fromUrl(url).toString() will give
you a normalized version of the URL that still uses the same protocol.
Shortcuts will still be returned as shortcuts, but the special case github
org/project will be normalized to
SSH connect strings will be normalized into
Currently this supports Github, Bitbucket and Gitlab. Pull requests for additional hosts welcome.
