Hi Team,

We are trying to implement the Property setting and reading for a file in GitHub using Jgit API, similar to what we have in SVN (SvnSetProperty API). I am not able to find the API/solution for the same. Can you please let me know if there is any API equivalent to SVN's SvnSetProperty ?

Any help is appreciated in this regards.

Thanks,
M Pratap

No, there is no such thing. Git is not SVN.

It's been decades since I last used SVN, but here's a quick list of some equivalents I can think of:

  • svn:executable - set the executable bit in the git index entry, then commit
  • svn:mime-type - doesn't exist; use .gitattributes to define text/binary and diff behavior
  • svn:ignore - no direct equivalent; use .gitignore
  • svn:eol-style - no direct equivelant, use .gitattributes to define eol handling on check-out/check-in
  • svn:special - git supports symlinks in the index and in commits
  • svn:keywords - not supported in git; limited support via clean/smudge filters
  • svn:author, svn:date, svn:log - part of a commit in git
  • custom properties - not supported
