Project description

# iagitup - a command line tool to archive a GitHub repository to the Internet Archive

The python script downloads the GitHub repository, creates a [git bundle](https://git-scm.com/docs/git-bundle) and uploads it on an Internet Archive item with metadata from the GitHub API and a description from the repository readme.

## Prerequisites This script strongly recommends Linux or some sort of POSIX system (such as Mac OS X).

## Install iagitup

Prerequisites (with Debian or Ubuntu):

sudo apt update sudo apt install python python-pip python-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev git

### with pip:

pip install iagitup

### from source code:

Clone the repo and install the package…

git clone https://github.com/gdamdam/iagitup.git cd iagitup pip install .

## Usage

To upload a repo:

iagitup <github_repo_url>

You can add also custom metadata:

iagitup –metadata=<key:value,key2:val2> <github_repo_url>

To know the version:

iagitup -v

Example:

iagitup https://github.com/<GITHUBUSER>/<RESPOSITORY>

The script downloads the git repo from github, creates a git bundle and uploads it on the Internet Archive.

The repo will be archived in an item at url containing the repository name and the date of the last push, something like:

https://archive.org/details/github.com-<GITHUBUSER>-<RESPOSITORY>_-_<DATE-LAST-PUSH>

The git repo bundle will be available at url:

https://archive.org/download/github.com-<GITHUBUSER>-<RESPOSITORY>_-_<DATE-LAST-PUSH>/<BUNDLENAME>.bundle

## Restore an archived github repository

Download the bundle file, form the archived item:

https://archive.org/download/…/<ARCHIVED_REPO>.bundle

Just download the _.bundle_ file and run:

git clone file.bundle
