A small script to keep a copy of every repo in a Github org.
A small script to keep a local bare copy of every repo in a Github organization, for faster cloning and deploys
Download and run:
$ python setup.py install
Or install from PyPi:
$ pip install githubmirror
To initialize a bare repository on your local machine for every repository in your Github organization:
$ github-mirror init <organization>
By default, github-mirror will create the repositories in your current working directory. Override this using the –workdir option.
When your repositories have been initialized, you can now trigger a git fetch for each repo by running:
$ github-mirror sync <organization>
To only sync or initialize a single repo, use the –only-repo=<repo> option.
To access the Github API to find your organization’s private repositories, github-mirror asks you for an API token. If you create a personal API token, it gives the same access to your account as your username and password, but can be revoked separately.
github-mirror will save your token to a .githubmirror file in your working directory. Please take care to protect this file from unauthorized access.
