# Git Common Sync
_A tool to synchronise common files between Git repositories._


## Features
- Programmatically synchronises git repositories according to a specification.
- Supports synchronisation of:
- Files and directories.
- Directories managed by [git-subrepo](https://github.com/ingydotnet/git-subrepo).
- Content generated using templates and project specific values.
- Ansible support.


## How to use
### Prerequisites
- git >= 2.10.0
- git-subrepo >= 0.3.1
- python >= 3.6
- rsync >= 3.1.1


### Installation
#### Ansible Module
```yaml
- gitcommonsync:
repository: http://www.example.com/repository.git
author_name: Ansible Synchroniser
author_email: team@example.com
key_file: /custom/id_rsa
files:
- src: /example/README.md

```


## Development
### Setup
