Project Description

Emacs A Magit inspired porcelain for osc. Magit is a Git porcelain inside Emacs that does not re-implement Git but rather runs Git commands in the background. It's intuitive UX, based on transient, makes it easy to discover and use Git features. While Magit hides complexity, it is intentionally bad at it: every Git command it runs can be displayed, just one* key press away.

osc is a tool many of us use daily and for good reason. It is really powerful and let's us branch, create, update, submit OBS packages and much more. One area osc is not great at is intuitivity, especially for those of us who don't use is a lot. This project wants to create an interface inside Emacs that makes osc features easy to discover and us.

* the number of key presses depends on keybinding configuration

Goal for this Hackweek

  • learn enough Emacs Lisp to get started with the project
  • create a Magit-inspired interface for the most basic osc operations (e.g. osc add, osc ci)

Resources

Looking for hackers with the skills:

osc emacs lisp openbuildservice

      You might be interested in the osc backend for vc-mode: https://github.com/aspiers/vc-osc

      I have also picked up a bit of knowledge about osc's way how it stores data and would be happy to help if I can.
