Full Description


Docker-Container behaving (nearly) like a git-binary.

Written for my personal private own use only. Comes without any guarantees.


The container contains a helper script for convienient usage. Just print it out and make it accessible in your PATH and executable like this.

$ docker run --entrypoint=/bin/cat axeclbr/git /root/git > $HOME/bin/dgit && chmod +x $HOME/bin/dgit

To check if it works it makes sense to just ask for the git version by typing:

$ dgit --version
git version 2.6.4

If you want to use another name just change it from dgit to your desired name.

Now you can start using dgit just like a local git installation.


The Dockerfile uses "ENTRYPOINT" and not "CMD" to behave more like the git-binary. This means, that passing /bin/bash to it will result in an error-message of git ("git: '/bin/bash' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.") and not open a Shell.

To start a Shell inside of the container you have to explicitly override the "ENTRYPOINT" instead:

$ docker run -it --entrypoint /bin/bash axeclbr/git
