Github-clone makes it easy to clone all github projects of a user, using either the public or private clone urls for the projects.
Clone all public repositories of user Narnach, using the public clone URLs:
Clone all repositories of user Narnach, using the private clone URLs and suppressing console output:
github-clone Narnach -q --private
When you simply want a list of your repositories with their clone urls, that's an option too:
github-clone Narnach --dry-run --private
The output will look something like this:
Username matches github.user configuration, so using that to access private repositories. Would clone aasterinian: email@example.com:Govannon/aasterinian.git Would clone future: firstname.lastname@example.org:Narnach/future.git Already exists: github-clone for email@example.com:Narnach/github-clone.git
As you can see this accounts for your private organizations and collaborator repos as well.
When you have your
github.token properly setup (howto) in your
github-clone will use that information to fetch a list of your private repositories and clone those in addition to your public repositories.
You can find and/or setup your access tokens here. You only need the
repo scope: https://github.com/settings/tokens
Ideas / todo
- Add support to fetch/pull repositories as well as clone them. This makes automatic backups a possibility.
- Turn this script into a proper ruby gem.
- Add support to clone gitosis-managed repositories.
