Trying to run a “git commit -a” command from a gradle task that does
[‘git’, ‘commit’, ‘-a’, ‘-m’, ‘…’].execute().text.trim()
but it logs this into stderr:
*** Please tell me who you are.
fatal: unable to auto-detect email address
It does a bunch of stuff to make edits to a file and then tries to commit the changes so I haven’t used the task:Exec commandLine technique (though I’m not sure what the difference is between that and doing a .execute() directly?)
Also tried running this w/ “–no-daemon” in case it was running in the context of the daemon.
Is there any way to keep the context of the user running the gradle command line like a bash script would?
I could probably use one of the git gradle plugins, but I’d like to understand why gradle is not working this way first…
