Multiple repository management tool
$ pip install reps $ re
Detecting your repositories
Usage of re is centered around the contents of .reconfig in the current working directory. To generate a .reconfig from some repositories you have at hand…
$ re list [ansicolor:git] origin.url = https://github.com/numerodix/ansicolor [ejabberd:git] origin.url = https://github.com/processone/ejabberd.git [xmonad:git] origin.url = https://github.com/xmonad/xmonad > Run with -u to update .reconfig
Re-run with -u to write the detected config to .reconfig.
The most common use case for re is simply syncing your repos.
$ re pull > Fetching ansicolor > Fetching ejabberd > Fetching xmonad > Merging ansicolor -> Setting up local tracking branch develop > Merging ejabberd -> Setting up local tracking branch 1.1.x -> Setting up local tracking branch 2.1.x -> Setting up local tracking branch obsolete_3alpha -> Setting up local tracking branch 2.0.x > Merging xmonad
re simply runs git in the background. Fetching and merging are done in separate steps. During merging git may prompt you to resolve merge conflicts, so by fetching all the repos first we can do away with all the network io first and avoid interleaving that with interactive use of git.
