Well, we have ls-tree already implemented:


And cat-file is reasonably simple:

  int type;
  if (argv[0].equals("blob"))
    type = Constants.OBJ_BLOB;

  ObjectId id = ObjectId.fromString(argv[1]);
  ObjectLoader ldr =, type);
  byte[] tmp = new byte[1024];
  InputStream in = ldr.openInputStream();
  int n;
  while ((n = > 0)
    System.out.write(tmp, 0, n);
