A tool for managing git repositories.

Project description

Build status Development status License Python version Version Downloads


This tool can be used to manage many Git repositories at once through the command line. It can display repositories that contain uncommitted code or not yet pushed commits. In the future, this tool is meant as a high-level synchronization tool for repository configurations across multiple machines.

For a quick introduction, let me show how you would use the tool to get started.

gitool status -d ~/git/

This command will collect status information for all repositories in ~/git/ and display a summary when done. As can be seen above, you have to specify a directory where all your repositories are located in.


From PyPI

pip install gitool

From Source

./ install


sudo dnf copr enable eikendev/gitool
sudo dnf install python3-gitool


A configuration file can be saved to ~/.config/gitool/config.ini to avoid specifying the path for each invocation. Of course, $XDG_CONFIG_HOME can be set to change your configuration path. Alternatively, the path to the configuration file can be set via the --config-file argument.

RootDir = ~/git/


The source code is located on GitHub. To check out the repository, the following command can be used.

git clone
