Re: [jgit-dev] NIO2 JGit Implementation

Hello Alex,

I was also interested in the NIO2 implementation which would allow me to use jimfs memory file system.

Finally, I made my own fork keeping compatibility (left all public interfaces intact):

I haven't updated it since the begging of the year, but use it in several tools, as I like to work with git directly, rather than via REST APIs.

Kind regards,


P.S. maven:

Hi All,

A few years ago, I mentioned some work that my team in Red Hat has
been executing to create a NIO2 JGit implementation. Back in time,
there was some interest. However, we never had the time to isolate it
from our project codebase.

Finally, during the Gerrit/JGit Hackathon in Sunnyvale, I invested the
time to do it, and finally, I made it completely isolated [1]!

There's still some work to be done to flexible the architecture,
especially around Daemons and Security. However, I'd like to get some
input from you if they're still interested in having this component to
JGit as a separate bundle (jar).

Please let me know what you think and, if it's the case, how to
proceed from here.
