Contribute Code Anonymously
Gitmask is an open source hosted service that allows you to contribute to Github projects anonymously.
It mimics a standard
git remote, however all identifying information (author names, email and timestamps) embedded in
your commits are stripped, before forwarding a squashed commit to the target repository as a pull request.
There's a number of reasons why you may want to contribute to a Github project anonymously.
git clone https://github.com/AnalogJ/gitmask.git git checkout -b feat_branch echo "update readme" >> README.md git commit -am "Commits will be squashed and messages overwritten" git remote add gitmask https://git.gitmask/v1/gh/AnalogJ/gitmask git push gitmask feat_branch:master # Gitmask will strip identifying information from your commits. # You will be provided with a direct link to the pull request.
