GitBlit plugin

Overview

Purpose of this plugin is to use Gitblit as web-based viewer (i.e. GitWeb replacement) on top of Gerrit Code Review.

How to build

As pre-requisites you need to make a custom-build of Gitblit and Wicket: the standard JARs downloaded from a public Maven repository aren't enough as they are missing some specific build parameters and constraints (i.e. shaded-jar) that are needed for a Gerrit plugin to work properly.

Gitblit

You need to clone Gitblit from GitHub and build it locally using the installMaven ANT target.

$ git clone https://github.com/gitblit/gitblit.git
$ cd gitblit && git checkout master
$ git fetch origin refs/pull/1168/head && git merge --no-edit FETCH_HEAD
$ ant -DresourceFolderPrefix=static installMaven

Gitblit plugin

This gitblit plugin is built with Bazel. Only the Gerrit in-tree build is supported.

Clone or link this plugin to the plugins directory of Gerrit's source tree.

  git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit
  git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/gitblit
  cd gerrit/plugins
  ln -s ../../gitblit .
  rm external_plugin_deps.bzl
  ln -s gitblit/external_plugin_deps.bzl .
  cd ../

From Gerrit source tree issue the command:

  bazel build plugins/gitblit

The output is created in

  bazel-genfiles/plugins/gitblit/gitblit.jar

This project can be imported into the Eclipse IDE. Add the plugin name to the CUSTOM_PLUGINS set in Gerrit core in tools/bzl/plugins.bzl, and execute:

  ./tools/eclipse/project.py
