Update all git repositories under a base directory
#!/bin/bash
# store the current dir
CUR_DIR=$(pwd)
# Let the person running the script know what's going on.
echo "\n\033[1mPulling in latest changes for all repositories...\033[0m\n"
# Find all git repositories and update it to the master latest revision
for i in $(find . -name ".git" | cut -c 3-); do
echo "";
echo "\033[33m"+$i+"\033[0m";
# We have to go to the .git parent directory to call the pull command
cd "$i";
cd ..;
# finally pull
git pull origin master;
# lets get back to the CUR_DIR
cd $CUR_DIR
done
echo "\n\033[32mComplete!\033[0m\n"

For all find commands -prune will help save time by not searching inside of .git folders. (find man page mentions this).

find ~/GIT-REPOSITORIES ( -exec test -d '{}'/.git ; ) -print -prune

Pipe from there or so
find ~/GIT-REPOSITORIES ( -exec test -d '{}'/.git ; ) -print -prune | xargs -n1 -I% git --git-dir=%/.git --work-tree=%/ pull --all

This is the variation I use:
#To Pull

#!/usr/bin/env bash for repo in $(find . -name ".git" | cut -c 3- | sed 's/.git//g'); do current_branch=git -C ${repo} branch\|grep '*'\|cut -d' ' -f2;echo -e "Pulling repo: ${repo} \t on branch: ${current_branch}"; git -C $repo pull done

#To View

#!/usr/bin/env bash for repo in $(find . -name ".git" | cut -c 3- | sed 's/.git//g'); do current_branch=git -C ${repo} branch\|grep '*'\|cut -d' ' -f2;echo -e "repo: ${repo} \t on branch: ${current_branch}" done

dmhowcroft,

Legally anything released without a copyright notice is public domain, the notice contains a year range. If you release something with a year range then a few years later you make changes without updating the copyright notice, then those changes are public domain.

It was nice of you to ask the author :)

Actually that's not 100% true but fairly close. Its not possible for Australians or Germans to release anything public domain as neither counties allow citizens to give away their rights. Its one of the reasons its so important to license things.

find . -maxdepth 8 -name '.git' -prune -type d -printf '%h\n' | parallel --eta 'echo {} && git -C {} pull'

remove echo and --eta if not needed.

Very simple, yet effective and blazingly fast. Amazing! Thanks, @harisankar-krishna-2015

Heh! I had this need again after 9 years and was surprised by the amount of comments =)

Thanks for all suggestions - I will update the gist with improvements to run on macos and Linux 👍

How will this work in visual studio code with a workspace setup? I would like to be able to do a pull-from in all the repositories in the workspace, followed by a syncronization, except if there is a merge conflict.

Did you find a solution to this or an alternative?
