Agit Setup

In Gitea 1.13, support for agit was added.

Creating PRs with Agit

Agit allows to create PRs while pushing code to the remote repo. \ This can be done by pushing to the branch followed by a specific refspec (a location identifier known to git). \ The following example illustrates this:

git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master

The command has the following structure:

  • HEAD: The target branch
  • refs/<for|draft|for-review>/<branch>: The target PR type
    • for: Create a normal PR with <branch> as the target branch
    • draft/ for-review: Currently ignored silently
  • <branch>/<session>: The target branch to open the PR
  • -o <topic|title|description>: Options for the PR
    • title: The PR title
    • topic: The branch name the PR should be opened for
    • description: The PR description
    • force-push: confirm force update the target branch

Here's another advanced example for creating a new PR targeting master with topic, title, and description:

git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master -o topic="Topic of my PR" -o title="Title of the PR" -o description="# The PR Description\nThis can be **any** markdown content.\n- [x] Ok"
