Manage git projects en masse

Project description

Manage git projects en masse

Version on pypi Travis CI codecov Python versions tested (link to github project)

Overview

With mgit, you can pull/fetch several projects at once, and also auto-cleanup dangling branches (from past pull requests).

A colored output is provided if possible, mgit should come in handy in general for:

  • quickly getting an overview of what’s up with N git projects
  • fetch/pull N git objects at once
  • clone missing projects (useful if you tend to clone projects from same remote in one common folder)

Example usage

mgit can show you what’s the status of all your git projects in a folder, for example my repos:

~/dev/github: mgit
~/dev/github: 4 github/zsimic
     mgit: [master] up to date
  pickley: [master] 1 diff, up to date*  last fetch 3w 4d ago
    runez: [master] up to date*  last fetch 3w 4d ago
setupmeta: [master] up to date*  last fetch 4d 23h ago

Here we can see that I have 4 repos in ~/dev/github (and all 4 come from github/zsimic), 3 of them haven’t been fetched in a while. We can fetch them all at once with --fetch (or -f):

~/dev/github: mgit --fetch
~/dev/github: 4 github/zsimic
     mgit: [master] up to date
  pickley: [master] 1 diff, up to date
    runez: [master] up to date
setupmeta: [master] up to date

Now all projects have been refreshed, and we can see there’s nothing new (otherwise we’d see a mention of the form 2 commits behind). The output also shows that one of the projects has uncommitted files.

Modified files are shown if only one project is in scope, for example:

~/dev/github: mgit pickley
pickley: [master] 1 diff, up to date
   M tox.ini

Above, we can see that the modified file in question is tox.ini in that project. We can get the same effect using the -verbose (or -v) flag, like for example with 2 projects with modified files:

~/dev/github: mgit -v
~/dev/github: 4 github/zsimic
mgit: [master] 1 diff, up to date
   M README.rst
pickley: [master] 1 diff, up to date
   M tox.ini
runez: [master] up to date
setupmeta: [master] up to date
