2008-03-12git-gui: Simplify MSGFMT setting in MakefileJunio C Hamano
To prepare msg files for Tcl scripts, the command that is set to MSGFMT make variable needs to be able to grok "--tcl -l <lang> -d <here>" options correctly. This patch simplifies the tests done in git-gui's Makefile to directly test this condition. If the test run does not exit properly with zero status (either because you do not have "msgfmt" itself, or your "msgfmt" is too old to grok --tcl option --- the reason does not matter), have it fall back to po/ Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

2008-02-22git-gui: Avoid hardcoded Windows paths in Cygwin package filesShawn O. Pearce
When we are being built by the Cygwin package maintainers we need to embed the POSIX path to our library files and not the Windows path. Embedding the Windows path means all end-users who install our Cygwin package would be required to install Cygwin at the same Windows path as the package maintainer had Cygwin installed to. This requirement is simply not user-friendly and may be infeasible for a large number of our users. We now try to auto-detect if the Tcl/Tk binary we will use at runtime is capable of translating POSIX paths into Windows paths the same way that cygpath does the translations. If the Tcl/Tk binary gives us the same results then it understands the Cygwin path translation process and should be able to read our library files from a POSIX path name. If it does not give us the same answer as cygpath then the Tcl/Tk binary might actually be a native Win32 build (one that is not linked against Cygwin) and thus requires the native Windows path to our library files. We can assume this is not a Cygwin package as the Cygwin maintainers do not currently ship a pure Win32 build of Tcl/Tk. Reported on the git mailing list by Jurko Gospodnetić. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

2008-02-22git-gui: Default TCL_PATH to same location as TCLTK_PATHShawn O. Pearce
Most users set TCLTK_PATH to tell git-gui where to find wish, but they fail to set TCL_PATH to the same Tcl installation. We use the non-GUI tclsh during builds so headless systems are still able to create an index file and create message files without GNU msgfmt. So it matters to us that we find a working TCL_PATH at build time. If TCL_PATH hasn't been set yet we can take a better guess about what tclsh executable to use by replacing 'wish' in the executable path with 'tclsh'. We only do this replacement on the filename part of the path, just in case the string "wish" appears in the directory paths. Most of the time the tclsh will be installed alongside wish so this replacement is a sensible and safe default. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>

2008-01-23git-gui: Correctly cleanup msgfmt '1 message untranslated' outputgitgui-0.9.2Shawn O. Pearce
In the multiple message case we remove the word "messages" from the statistics output of msgfmt as it looks cleaner on the tty when you are watching the build process. However we failed to strip the word "message" when only 1 message was found to be untranslated or fuzzy, as msgfmt does not produce the 's' suffix. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2008-01-23git-gui: Fallback to Tcl based if msgfmt isn't availableShawn O. Pearce
If msgfmt fails with exit code 127 that typically means the program is not found in the user's PATH and thus cannot be executed by make. In such a case we can try to fallback to the Tcl based po2msg program that we distributed with git-gui, as it does a "good enough" job. We still don't default to however as it does not perform a lot of the sanity checks that msgfmt does, and quite a few of those are too useful to give up. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>

2007-10-13git-gui: Use proper Windows shortcuts instead of bat filesShawn O. Pearce
On Windows its better to use a shortcut (.lnk file) over a batch script (.bat) as we can specify the icon file for the .lnk and thus have these git specific objects appear on the desktop with that git specific icon file. Unfortunately the authors of Tcl did not bless us with the APIs needed to create shortcuts from within Tcl. But Microsoft did give us Windows Scripting Host which allows us to execute some JavaScript that calls some sort of COM object that can operate on a .lnk file. We now build both Cygwin and non-Cygwin "desktop icons" as proper Windows .lnk files, using the "Start in" property of these files to indicate the working directory of the repository the user wants to launch.

2007-10-10git-gui: add mingw specific startup wrapperSteffen Prohaska
The wrapper adds the directory it is installed in to PATH. This is required for the git commands implemented in shell. git-gui fails to launch them if PATH is not modified. The wrapper script also accepts an optional command line switch '--working-dir <dir>' and changes to <dir> before launching the actual git-gui. This is required to implement the "Git Gui Here" Explorer shell extension. As a last step the original git-gui script is launched, which is expected to be located in the same directory under the name git-gui.tcl. Signed-off-by: Steffen Prohaska <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

If we are building on Darwin (sometimes known as Mac OS X) and we find the Mac OS X Tk.framework in the expected location we build a proper Mac OS X application bundle with icons and info list. The git-gui and git-citool commands are modified to be very short shell scripts that just execute the application bundle, starting Tk with our own info list and icon set. Although the Makefile change here is rather large it makes for a much more pleasant user experience on Mac OS X as git-gui now has its own icon on the dock, in the standard tk_messageBox dialogs, and the application name now says "Git Gui" instead of "Wish" in locations such as the menu bar and the alt-tab window.

2007-09-21git-gui: Support native Win32 Tcl/Tk under CygwinShawn O. Pearce
Cygwin has been stuck on the 8.4.1 version of Tcl/Tk for quite some time, even though the main Tcl/Tk distribution is already shipping an 8.4.15. The problem is Tcl/Tk no longer supports Cygwin so apparently building the package for Cygwin is now a non-trivial task. Its actually quite easy to build the native Win32 version of Tcl/Tk by compiling with the -mno-cygwin flag passed to GCC but this means we lose all of the "fancy" Cygwin path translations that the Tcl library was doing for us. This is particularly an issue when we are trying to start git-gui through the git wrapper as the git wrapper is passing off a Cygwin path for $0 and Tcl cannot find the startup script or the library directory. We now use `cygpath -m -a` to convert the UNIX style paths to Windows style paths in our startup script if we are building on Cygwin. Doing so allows either the Cygwin-ized Tcl/Tk 8.4.1 that comes with Cygwin or a manually built 8.4.15 that is running the pure Win32 implementation to read our script. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

Several users have requested a "make uninstall" target be provided in the stock git-gui Makefile so that they can undo an install if git-gui goes to the wrong place during the initial install, or if they are unhappy with the tool and want to remove it from their system. We currently assume that the complete set of files we need to delete are those defined by our Makefile and current source directory. This could differ from what the user actually has installed if they installed one version then attempt to use another to perform the uninstall. Right now I'm just going to say that is "pilot error". Users should uninstall git-gui using the same version of source that they used to make the installation. Perhaps in the future we could read tclIndex and base our uninstall decisions on its contents.

2007-09-09git-gui: Avoid use of libdir in MakefileShawn O. Pearce
Dmitry V. Levin pointed out that on GNU linux libdir is often used in Makefiles to mean "/usr/lib" or "/usr/lib64", a directory that is meant to hold platform-specific binary files. Using a different libdir meaning here in git-gui's Makefile breaks idomatic expressions like rpm specifile "make libdir=%_libdir". Originally I asked that the git.git Makefile undefine libdir before it calls git-gui's own Makefile but it turns out this is very hard to do, if not impossible. Renaming our libdir to gg_libdir resolves this case with a minimum amount of fuss on our part. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>

2007-09-03git-gui: Quiet the msgfmt part of the make processShawn O. Pearce
I really prefer having a very short and sweet makefile output that does not flood the user's screen with a ton of commands that they don't care much about. Traditionally git-gui has hidden away the actual commands from output by the $(QUIET*) series of macros but allow them to be seen with either `make QUIET=` or `make V=1`. This change makes our i18n message generation process to be a lot shorter and easier to digest at a glance: GITGUI_VERSION = * new locations or Tcl/Tk interpreter GEN git-gui BUILTIN git-citool INDEX lib/ MSGFMT po/de.msg 268 translated.

Junio asked that we don't force the user to have a valid X11 server configured in $DISPLAY just to obtain the output of `git gui version`. This makes sense, the user may be an automated tool that is running without an X server available to it, such as a build script or other sort of package management system. Or it might just be a user working in a non-GUI environment and wondering "what version of git-gui do I have installed?". Tcl has a lot of warts, but one of its better ones is that a comment can be continued to the next line by escaping the LF that would have ended the comment using a backslash-LF sequence. In the past we have used this trick to escape away the 'exec wish' that is actually a Bourne shell script and keep Tcl from executing it. I'm using that feature here to comment out the Bourne shell script and hide it from the Tcl engine. Except now our Bourne shell script is a few lines long and checks to see if it should print the version, or not. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>

2007-06-21git-gui: Quiet our installation processShawn O. Pearce
Alex Riesen wanted a quieter installation process for git and its contained git-gui. His earlier patch to do this failed to work properly when V=1, and didn't really give a great indication of what the installation was doing. These rules are a little bit on the messy side, as each of our install actions is composed of at least two variables, but in the V=1 case the text is identical to what we had before, while in the non-V=1 case we use some more complex rules to show the interesting details, and hide the less interesting bits. We now can also set QUIET= (nothing) to see the rules that are used when V= (nothing), so we can debug those too if we have to. This is actually a side-effect of how we insert the @ into the rules we use for the "lists of things", like our builtins or our library files. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-06-21git-gui: Correctly install to /usr/bin on CygwinShawn O. Pearce
Mark Levedahl <> noted that installation on Cygwin to /usr/bin can cause problems with the automatic guessing of our library location. The problem is that installation to /usr/bin means we actually have: /usr/bin = c:\cygwin\bin /usr/share = c:\cygwin\usr\share So git-gui guesses that its library should be found within the c:\cygwin\share directory, as that is where it should be relative to the script itself in c:\cygwin\bin. In my first version of this patch I tried to use `cygpath` to resolve /usr/bin and /usr/share to test that they were in the same relative locations, but that didn't work out correctly as we were actually testing /usr/share against itself, so it always was equal, and we always used relative paths. So my original solution was quite wrong. Mark suggested we just always disable relative behavior on Cygwin, because of the complexity of the mount mapping problem, so that's all I'm doing.

Johannes Sixt asked me to try to avoid embedding the runtime location of git-gui's library directory in the executable script. Not embedding it helps the MinGW to be relocatable to another directory should a user wish to install the programs in a directory other than the location the packager wanted them to be installed into. Most of this is a hack. We try to determine if the path of our master git-gui script will be able to locate the lib by ../share/git-gui/lib. This should be true if $(gitexecdir) and $(libdir) have the same prefix. If they do then we defer the assignment of $(libdir) until runtime, and we get it from $argv0 rather than embedding it into the script itself. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-05-17git-gui: Gracefully handle bad TCL_PATH at compile timegitgui-0.7.1Shawn O. Pearce
Petr Baudis pointed out the main git.git repository's Makefile dies now if git-gui 0.7.0-rc1 or later is being used and TCL_PATH was not set to a working tclsh program path. This breaks people who may have a working build configuration today and suddenly upgrade to the latest git release. The tclIndex is required for git-gui to load its associated lib files, but using the Tcl auto_load procedure to source only the files we need is a performance optimization. We can emulate the auto_load by just source'ing every file in that directory, assuming we source class.tcl first to initialize our crude class system. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-05-09git-gui: Define a simple class/method systemShawn O. Pearce
As most of the git-gui interface is based upon "meta-widgets" that need to carry around a good deal of state (e.g. console windows, browser windows, blame viewer) we have a good deal of messy code that tries to store this meta-widget state in global arrays, where keys into the array are formed from a union of a unique "object instance id" and the field name. This is a simple class system for Tcl that allows us to hide much of that mess by making Tcl do what it does best; process strings to manipulate its own code during startup. Each object instance is placed into its own namespace. The namespace is created when the object instance is created and the namespace is destroyed when the object instance is removed from the system. Within that namespace we place variables for each field within the class; these variables can themselves be scalar values or full-blown Tcl arrays. A simple class might be defined as: class map { field data field size 0 constructor {} { return $this } method set {name value} { set data($name) $value incr size } method size {} { return $size } ifdeleted { return 0 } } All fields must be declared before any constructors or methods. This allows our class to generate a list of the fields so it can properly alter the definition of the constructor and method bodies prior to passing them off to Tcl for definition with proc. A field may optionally be given a default/initial value. This can only be done for non-array type fields. Constructors are given full access to all fields of the class, so they can initialize the data values. The default values of fields (if any) are set before the constructor runs, and the implicit local variable $this is initialized to the instance identifier. Methods are given access to fields they actually use in their body. Every method has an implicit "this" argument inserted as its first parameter; callers of methods must be sure they supply this value. Some basic optimization tricks are performed (but not much). We try to only upvar (locally bind) fields that are accessed within a method, but we err on the side of caution and may upvar more than we need to. If a variable is accessed only once within a method and that access is by $foo (read) we avoid the upvar and instead use [set foo] to obtain the value. This is slightly faster as Tcl does not need to lookup the variable twice. We also offer some small syntatic sugar for interacting with Tk and the fileevent callback system in Tcl. If a field (say "foo") is used as "@foo" we insert instead the true global variable name of that variable into the body of the constructor or method. This allows easy binding to Tk textvariable options, e.g.: label $w.title -textvariable @title Proper namespace callbacks can also be setup with the special cb proc that is defined in each namespace. [cb _foo a] will invoke the method _foo in the current namespace, passing it $this as the first (implied) parameter and a as the second parameter. This makes it very simple to connect an object instance to a -command option for a Tk widget or to a fileevent readable or writable for a file channel. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2007-05-08git-gui: Refactor into multiple files to save my sanityShawn O. Pearce
I'm finding it difficult to work with a 6,000+ line Tcl script and not go insane while looking for a particular block of code. Since most of the program is organized into different units of functionality and not all users will need all units immediately on startup we can improve things by splitting procs out into multiple files and let auto_load handle things for us. This should help not only to better organize the source, but it may also improve startup times for some users as the Tcl parser does not need to read as much script before it can show the UI. In many cases the user can avoid reading at least half of git-gui now. Unfortunately we now need a library directory in our runtime location. This is currently assumed to be $(sharedir)/git-gui/lib and its expected that the Makefile invoker will setup some sort of reasonable sharedir value for us, or let us assume its going to be $(gitexecdir)/../share. We now also require a tclsh (in TCL_PATH) to just run the Makefile, as we use tclsh to generate the tclIndex for our lib directory. I'm hoping this is not an unncessary burden on end-users who are building from source. I haven't really made any functionality changes here, this is just a huge migration of code from one file to many smaller files.
