Pijul

Git Attributes Filter Equivalent

Git provides a mechanism to modify file contents before they are checked out or comitted.

This is very useful for tools like git-crypt, which transparently de/encrypt files in the repo (when specified in a .gitattributes file ).

Is there some similar functionality planned for Pijul?

If not it would be great to take this use case into account.

This would be fantastic indeed. A primary use case would be syntactic patches, where code blocks are stored outside of files, and files are just lists of pointers to them.
