When installing and running this for the first time, this is what I get:

$ gitfs -h
[ exception ]
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'raven==5.27.0' distribution was not found and is required by gitfs

@nikvdp: Do you have SSH working? Only HTTPS works for me.

Also the version check of the python-six dependency needs to be altered from == to >= version

ahrs commented on 2017-05-08 06:58

Here's a patch that fixes things:

This adds python-raven to the dependencies and makes python-setuptools a dependency as opposed to a makedependency since this is a runtime dependency for some weird reason with gitfs complaining about `ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'`. I also patched the requirements.txt file making fusepy,pygit2 and raven use newer packages (>= instead of ==). It's unclear if gitfs needs specific versions of these modules for some reason. In my testing I can mount git repos no problem whatsoever but there may be some weird edge cases. It's probably worth asking upstream if gitfs requires specific versions of the aforementioned modules and if so, why.

0.4.1-1 is the first ever aur release of gitfs that I was able to get working! Great work. I still had some issues so I created a wiki page here with some tips and tricks for the problems I encountered:
Maybe it will help someone in the future.

I'd suggest to open an upstream bug and for the time being downgrade the python2-pygit2 package, in case it does not interfere with anything else. I won't be able to provide a patch for this error myself, sorry.

Installation succeeds, but then I can't run it. I think it is because the dependency python2-pygit2 has updated to version 0.23.0, whereas gitfs requires the earlier 0.22.0.

Can this be fixed please? Happy to provide any help or information you may need.

Dependencies should be sorted and went back to python2 for this package. I did not really test the functionality, so would be great to have some feedback if this really works now.
