A bitbucket server helper for working with lots of repos.

Project description


A command-line utility for working with lots of bitbucket server projects and repositories.

The helper allows you to clone or pull every bitbucket repository you have access too. Repositories are pathed under their parent project, making it easy to identify the source project.


The utility requires python3.7

pip install bitbucket-helper


The first time you attempt to sync, you will get prompted to provide your bitbucket details. The tool supports both Bitbucket server and Bitbucket cloud.

Bitbucket server requires a read-only personal access token. To generate go to Bitbucket -> Manage account -> Personal Access Tokens.

Bickbucket cloud requires an App Password if you use 2FA. The App must be granted Team Membership -> Read, Projects -> Read

All configuration settings get stored in ~/.bitbucket-helper.config. To reconfigure you can delete this file.

Listing Repositories

You can list all of the repositories you have permission to access with:

bitbucket-helper list

The command outputs the following quoted comma-separated values:



The synchronisation function uses bitbucket APIs to get all accessible projects and repositories. For each project, it will create a directory using its key. For each repository, we perform a git clone or a git pull if we already have a local copy. After the pull, we prune and delete local branches that have been merged at the origin.

Local directory structure:

  • working_directory (~/bitbucket)
    • proj1
      • repo1
      • repo2
    • proj2
      • repo1
      • repo2
bitbucket-helper sync

Git log commands

Bitbucket helper makes it easy to search for commits across all of your repositories using simple filters. Log commands operate on locally synched repositories, so remember to do a bitbucket-helper sync first.

You can find all commits after a specified date using:

bitbucket-helper log --after=2020-03-02

To search from commits between two tags:

bitbucket-helper log --from_tag=1.9.0 --to_tag=1.9.1

The command outputs the following quoted comma-separated values:
