I’m currently building a tool that integrates git functionality.
Has anybody implemented a
pull with libgit2-rs that accesses an ssh remote?
RemoteCallbacks::credentials() doesn’t seem to be the right one.
You can take a look at Cargo’s implementation as it implements pulling from an ssh remote, but
RemoteCallbacks::credentials should be what you need to use here. Unfortunately the handshake involves something like returning a username authentication first followed by some ssh-key authentication.
Thanks for the hint, I’ll have a look at the cargo implementation than.
I finally had the time to take a look at what you did in
with_authentication in cargo.
It seems to me that a lot of what you did in cargo’s
git/utils.rs could be very beneficial to the git2 crate instead. What is your opinion?
Perhaps! git2-rs is currently just a thin wrapper around libgit2, but I wouldn’t mind beefing up the docs with more practical examples or perhaps adding helper functions here or there.
