Bushy is a git workflow plugin inspired by git-pivotal but intending to support multiple project management platforms aside from just Pivotal Tracker.


Bushy is a Python package and can be installed using the easy_install or pip commands. For the most seamless integration install the package so the generated console scripts are available in your $PATH.

It is always advisable to install python packages within a virtualenv. If you activate your project virtualenv while developing, this will place the commands in your $PATH automatically. Alternatively, you can create a dedicated virtualenv for Bushy and add the scripts to your shell config. If you use bash you could do the following to ensure the commands are accessible:

$ virtualenv-2.6 --no-site-packages bushy
$ bushy/bin/pip install bushy
$ echo "export PATH = $PATH:/path/to/bushy/bin" > ~/.bash_profile

This will allow you to run the following commands:

$ git feature
$ git finish
$ git bug

As well as:

$ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-feature
$ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-finish
$ /path/to/bushy/bin/git-bug


Pivotal Configuration

Bushy requires global and project local configuration to integrate fully.

Required local configuration (from within your project directory):

$ git config -f .git/config bushy.platform pivotal # use Pivotal Tracker for this project
$ git config -f .git/config bushy-pivotal.project-id PROJECT_ID # from the project url on the Pivotal Tracker site

Required global configuration:

$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.api-token TOKEN # taken from the profile section on the Pivotal Tracker site
$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.full-name "YOUR NAME"

Optional configuration:

$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.integration-branch # the name of the integration branch if different from master
$ git config --global bushy-pivotal.only-mine # only select from new features that are assigned to you

Working on a new feature

You can select a new feature to work on using the git-feature command:

junkafarian$ git feature

If you want to work on a specific story you can specify the story id:

junkafarian$ git feature -s 12345

This will switch you to a new branch for working on the issue selected.

junkafarian$ git finish
