GIT stands for GLOBAL INFORMATION TRACKER.
Given some Git repositories, the task is to check if they are valid or not using regular expressions. Rules for the valid Git Repository are: 

  • It is an alphanumeric string containing uppercase Alphabet letters(A-Z) and digits(0-9).
  • It should not contain any white spaces.
  • It can contain some special symbols like “@“, “/“, ““, “.” and “:“.
  • it should always start with the alphabet.

Examples:

Input: str = “http://host.xz/path/to/repo.git/” 
Output: True 

Input: str = “https://git.smartbox.in”
Output: False

Approach: The problem can be solved based on the following idea:

Create a regex pattern to validate the number as written below:   
regex= ((http|git|ssh|http(s)|file|\/?)|(git@[\w\.]+))(:(\/\/)?)([\w\.@\:/\-~]+)(\.git)(\/)?

Where,

  • \ : Represents one of this hould be present and should be starting of the string.
  • ? : Either one should be present or not.
  • (s) : s can be attached to http or not
  • \. : Represents dot should be there.

Follow the below steps to implement the idea:

  • Create a regex expression for Git Repository.
  • Use Pattern class to compile the regex formed.
  • Use the matcher function to check whether the Git Repository is valid or not.
  • If it is valid, return true. Otherwise, return false.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++

// C++ program to validate the
// GIT Repository using Regular
// Expression

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
#include <regex>
using namespace std;

// Function to validate the
// GIT Repository
string isValid_GIT_Repository(string str)
{
    // Regex to check valid
    // GIT Repository
    const regex pattern(
        "((http|git|ssh|http(s)|file|\\/"
        "?)|(git@[\\w\\.]+))(:(\\/\\/)?)([\\w\\.@\\:/"
        "\\-~]+)(\\.git)(\\/)?");

    // If the str
    // is empty return false
    if (str.empty()) {
        return "false";
    }

    // Return true if the str
    // matched the ReGex
    if (regex_match(str, pattern)) {
        return "true";
    }
    else {
        return "false";
    }
}

// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Test Case 1:
    string str1 = "http:// host.xz/path/to/repo.git/";
    cout << isValid_GIT_Repository(str1) << endl;

    // Test Case 2:
    string str2 = "git@git.smartbox.in:smartbox/american_locker.git";
    cout << isValid_GIT_Repository(str2) << endl;

    // Test Case 3:
    string str3 = "git@git.smartbox.in:smartbox/american_locker.git";
    cout << isValid_GIT_Repository(str3) << endl;

    // Test Case 4:
    string str4 = "git@github.com:someone/someproject.txt";
    cout << isValid_GIT_Repository(str4) << endl;

    // Test Case 5:
    string str5 = "https:// git.smartbox.in";
    cout << isValid_GIT_Repository(str5) << endl;

    return 0;
}

Java

// Java program to validate the
// GIT Repository using Regular Expression

import java.util.regex.*;

class GFG {

    // Function to validate the
    // GIT Repository
    public static boolean isValid_GIT_Repository(String str)
    {
        // Regex to check valid  GIT Repository
        String regex
            = "((http|git|ssh|http(s)|file|\\/?)|"
              + "(git@[\\w\\.]+))(:(\\/\\/)?)"
              + "([\\w\\.@\\:/\\-~]+)(\\.git)(\\/)?";

        // Compile the ReGex
        Pattern p = Pattern.compile(regex);

        // If the str is empty return false
        if (str == null) {
            return false;
        }

        // Pattern class contains matcher()
        // method to find matching between
        // given str using regex.
        Matcher m = p.matcher(str);

        // Return if the str
        // matched the ReGex
        return m.matches();
    }

    // Driver Code.
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Test Case 1:
        String str1 = "http:/"
                      + "/host.xz/path/to/repo.git/";
        System.out.println(isValid_GIT_Repository(str1));

        // Test Case 2:
        String str2
            = "git@git.smartbox.in:smartbox/american_locker.git";
        System.out.println(isValid_GIT_Repository(str2));

Time Complexity: O(N) for each testcase, where N is the length of the given string. 
Auxiliary Space: O(1)
