// sync
console.log(parse.sync());

// using async/await
(async () => console.log(await parse()))();

Options

cwd

The starting directory to search from.
Type: string
Default: process.cwd() (current working directory)

path

Either the absolute path to .git config, or the path relative to the current working directory.
Type: string
Default: .git/config

Examples config object

Parsed config object will look something like:
{ core:
   { repositoryformatversion: '0',
     filemode: true,
     bare: false,
     logallrefupdates: true,
     ignorecase: true,
     precomposeunicode: true },
  'remote "origin"':
   { url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert/parse-git-config.git',
     fetch: '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*' },
  'branch "master"': { remote: 'origin', merge: 'refs/heads/master', ... } }

API

parse

Asynchronously parse a .git/config file. If only the callback is passed, the .git/config file relative to process.cwd() is used.
Params
  • options {Object|String|Function}: Options with cwd or path, the cwd to use, or the callback function.
  • callback {Function}: callback function if the first argument is options or cwd.
  • returns {Object}

Example
parse((err, config) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  // do stuff with config
});

// or, using async/await
(async () => {
  console.log(await parse());
  console.log(await parse({ cwd: 'foo' }));
  console.log(await parse({ cwd: 'foo', path: 'some/.git/config' }));
})();

.sync

Synchronously parse a .git/config file. If no arguments are passed, the .git/config file relative to process.cwd() is used.
Params
  • options {Object|String}: Options with cwd or path, or the cwd to use.
  • returns {Object}

Example
console.log(parse.sync());
console.log(parse.sync({ cwd: 'foo' }));
console.log(parse.sync({ cwd: 'foo', path: 'some/.git/config' }));

.expandKeys

Returns an object with only the properties that had ini-style keys converted to objects.
Params
  • config {Object}: The parsed git config object.
  • returns {Object}

Example
const config = parse.sync({ path: '/path/to/.gitconfig' });
const obj = parse.expandKeys(config);

.expandKeys examples

Converts ini-style keys into objects:
Example 1
const parse = require('parse-git-config');
const config = { 
  'foo "bar"': { doStuff: true },
  'foo "baz"': { doStuff: true } 
};

console.log(parse.expandKeys(config));

Results in:
{ 
  foo: { 
    bar: { doStuff: true }, 
    baz: { doStuff: true } 
  } 
}

Example 2
const parse = require('parse-git-config');
const config = {
  'remote "origin"': { 
    url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert/normalize-pkg.git',
    fetch: '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*' 
  },
  'branch "master"': { 
    remote: 'origin', 
    merge: 'refs/heads/master' 
  },
  'branch "dev"': { 
    remote: 'origin', 
    merge: 'refs/heads/dev', 
    rebase: true 
  }
};

console.log(parse.expandKeys(config));

Results in:
{
  remote: {
    origin: {
      url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert/normalize-pkg.git',
      fetch: '+refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*'
    }
  },
  branch: {
    master: {
      remote: 'origin',
      merge: 'refs/heads/master'
    },
    dev: {
      remote: 'origin',
      merge: 'refs/heads/dev',
      rebase: true
    }
  }
}
