gitnamespaces - Linux


gitnamespaces is a command-line tool specifically designed for creating, managing, and utilizing Git namespaces. It provides a convenient interface to create a structured hierarchy of namespaces within a Git repository, enabling efficient organization and collaboration on large-scale projects.


gitnamespaces <command> [options]


  • -c, –create: Create a new namespace.
  • -d, –delete: Delete a namespace.
  • -l, –list: List all namespaces.
  • -s, –set: Set the default namespace for the current working directory.
  • -g, –get: Get the default namespace for the current working directory.
  • -h, –help: Display help information.


Creating a new namespace:

gitnamespaces -c my-new-namespace

Setting the default namespace:

gitnamespaces -s my-namespace

Listing all namespaces:

gitnamespaces -l

Common Issues

  • Namespace already exists: If you try to create a namespace that already exists, you will get an error message.


gitnamespaces can be integrated with other Git commands and tools to enhance your workflow. For example, you can use it with the git filter-repo command to migrate repositories to a namespace-based structure.
