       Code::TidyAll::Git::Prereceive - Git pre-receive hook that requires files to be tidyall'd


       version 0.67


         In .git/hooks/pre-receive:

           use Code::TidyAll::Git::Prereceive;
           use strict;
           use warnings;


           # or

           my $input = do { local $/; <STDIN> };

           # Do other things with $input here

           my $hook = Code::TidyAll::Git::Prereceive->new();
           if (my $error = $hook->check_input($input)) {
               die $error;


       This module implements a Git pre-receive hook <
       Git-Hooks> that checks if all pushed files are tidied and valid according to tidyall, and
       rejects the push if not.

       This is typically used to validate pushes from multiple developers to a shared repo,
       possibly on a remote server.

       See also Code::TidyAll::Git::Precommit, which operates locally.


       This class provides the following methods:

       This method reads commit info from standard input, then checks that all files being added
       or modified in this push are tidied and valid according to tidyall. If not, then the
       entire push is rejected and the reason(s) are output to the client. e.g.

           % git push
           Counting objects: 9, done.
           remote: [checked] lib/CHI/
           remote: Code before strictures are enabled on line 13 [TestingAndDebugging::RequireUseStrict]
           remote: 1 file did not pass tidyall check
           To ...
            ! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)

       The configuration file ("tidyall.ini" or ".tidyallrc") must be checked into git in the
       repo root directory, i.e. next to the .git directory.

       In an emergency the hook can be bypassed by pushing the exact same set of commits 3
       consecutive times (configurable via "allow_repeated_push"):

           % git push
           remote: 1 file did not pass tidyall check

           % git push
           *** Identical push seen 2 times
           remote: 1 file did not pass tidyall check

           % git push
           *** Identical push seen 3 times
           *** Allowing push to proceed despite errors

       Or you can disable the hook in the repo being pushed to, e.g. by renaming

       If an unexpected runtime error occurs, it is reported but by default the commit will be
       allowed through (see "reject_on_error").

       Passes mode = "commit" by default; see modes.

       Key/value parameters:

       ·   allow_repeated_push

           Number of times a push must be repeated exactly after which it will be let through
           regardless of errors. Defaults to 3. Set to 0 or "undef" to disable this feature.

       ·   conf_name

           Conf file name to search for instead of the defaults.

       ·   extra_conf_files

           An arrayref of extra configuration files referred to from the main configuration file,

               extra_conf_files => ['perlcriticrc', 'perltidyrc']

           These files will be pulled out of the repo alongside the main configuration file. If
           you don't list them here then you'll get errors like 'cannot find perlcriticrc' when
           the hook runs.

       ·   git_path

           Path to git to use in commands, e.g. '/usr/bin/git' or '/usr/local/bin/git'. By
           default, just uses 'git', which will search the user's PATH.

       ·   reject_on_error

           Whether "check" should reject the commit when an unexpected runtime error occurs. By
           default, the error will be reported but the commit will be allowed.

       ·   tidyall_class

           Subclass to use instead of Code::TidyAll

       ·   tidyall_options

           Hashref of options to pass to the Code::TidyAll constructor. You can use this to
           override the default options

               mode  => 'commit',
               quiet => 1,

           or pass additional options.

       This takes the same parameters documented as documented in "check" above and returns a new
       object which you can then call "check_input" on.

       Runs a check on $input, the text block of lines that came from standard input. You can
       call this manually before or after you do other processing on the input. Returns an error
       string if there was a problem or undef if there were no problems.


       This hook will ignore any files with only a single line of content (no newlines), as an
       imperfect way of filtering out symlinks.
