Open Source Project: gyt

To conclude my week of open source projects I spent time in the hotel lobby and airport today implementing the beginnings of an idea I've had for a while.

gyt is (the start of) an implementation of Git-like ideas in Python (see github).

It's not intended to be a port of Git to Python. It's more designed as an exploration of how Git works and how the concepts might be applied to other tasks. In particular, I'm interested in exploring its use for versioning in-memory data structures rather than blobs on disk.

So in a way, gyt is to Git what Rel is to a relational databases. In fact, the two might have some strong tie, in terms of gyt being used to version relations.

gyt will probably look less and less like Git internals over time. I'll likely change the name at some point as the distance between the two increases.

The original post was in the categories: python open_source git but I'm still in the process of migrating categories over.
