Keep your repositories up-to-date all the time.

Project description

Fork Syncer – Fsyncer

Travis Build

This is a small python application to keep all your remote forks up-to-date.



pip install fsyncer


From a cron job for example which runs every day / week / month…

export FSYNC_GITHUB_TOKEN=<github_token_with_repo_access_scope>

Filter Repositories

It’s possible to provide a list of repositories that Fsyncer should deal with. In that case, the list of forks will be filtered down to the provided list. That files location is ~/.config/fsyncer/.repo_list.



In this case if there are other repositories for that user, they will all be ignored and only these three will be synced.


Fsynver runs git in the background on the given environment. If the installed git can push to a repository then so can Fsyncer. Hence the requirement is only to have a valid git client with properly set up credentials.

fsyncer also requires a token to be present on the current machine to gather data, like remote forks and username.

This environment property is FSYNC_GITHUB_TOKEN.


Only forks can be updated which can be fast forwarded for now. Fsyncer will not try to do git magic or trying to resolve merge conflicts. If the push doesn’t work, it will skip that repository and move on to the next one.


Future plans include:

  1. Creating a cron job with an optional parameter for the current user
  2. Documentation
  3. Support other VCSs


Are always welcomed.
