On XDA, most users and beginner developers run into Git when compiling Android ROMs such as CyanogenMod 10. Now, there’s an application that lets you access your Git content with your Android device.
XDA Forum Member oliuf4e has released Gidder, a Git server for Android. With it, developers can manage and distribute their code directly from their Android devices. It has a lot of features, including:
Git server over SSH for accessing your repositories.
Support Push, Pull, Fetch and Clone Git operations which is all you need to achieve successful distribution with Git.
User management – create, create from contact, edit, delete, activate/deactivate, set/remove permissions to repositories.
