Sometimes I get stuck where I have a local git repo I want to collaborate with someone on, but I don’t want to go through the hassle of making a public GitHub repo, or setting up an SSH server or guest user on my laptop, or who knows. It’s just a temporary situation and git is distributed revision control, this should be easy!
So I made a little git plugin called
git-hostd. You can find it at its
project page on GitHub.
~$ go get github.com/jtolds/gitserve/cmd/git-hostd

The project originally started as a library for building automatic coding
competition systems hosted via git, so the
git-submitd tool allows for pushes
of code along with running checks. Less useful to most people.
