What would you like to do?
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"

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

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?
