“I’m open sourcing this hoping someone can find a use for it.””I had dreams of building a more decentralized github at one point and https://gitern.com was the beginnings of that.””Maybe it’ll inspire (indirectly) someone to work on the nostr github everyone is waiting for.”
Gitern is a multitenant git host that uses ssh keys for auth exclusively and has a command-line UI. It is very minimal and has a novel auth.”I will one day describe more about how it works (especially if someone bothers to ask), but this gist is:
1) lots of SSHD hacks.
2) users are progressively chroot/jailed into isolated parts of the filesytem upon authentication with different sets of commands available.”
