CLI tool to find git repositories.

Project description

A simple CLI tool for finding git repositories.


pip install find-git-repos

You may wish to install using pipx, which manages a virtual environment for find-git-packages for you.


find-git-repos will search recursively in the current directory for git repositories when invoked with no arguments:


Alternatively, you can pass a directory to search:

find-git-repos ~/src

I created this tool to aid navigating between repositories on my computer. I organise respostories in subdirectories corresponding to their HTTPS/SSH URLs on GitHub, Bitbucket and GitLab, e.g.:

  • ~/src/
  • ~/src/
  • ~/src/

To facilitate switching between repos quickly, I define a zsh function in my .zshrc shell configuration file that pipes the output of find-git-repos to fzy for fuzzy matching.

function repo {
    dest=$(find-git-repos ~/src | fzy -q "$initial_query" -l 20) && cd "$HOME/src/$dest"

When I need to switch to a repo, I run repo in my shell, type enough of the name to match the repo name, then hit enter to exit fzy and switch to the selected repo.
