A tool for cloning and automatically organising local git repos.

Git get

Like go get, git-get organizes repos in directories according to 1) host, 2) user, and 3) project name.

Example

git get git@github.com:pietvanzoen/dotfiles.git will clone the project into $GIT_PATH/github.com/pietvanzoen/dotfiles.

Installation

cd <where-you-want-the-script>
curl -O https://gist.githubusercontent.com/pietvanzoen/92c47aa810506ec113e42667fc6e1b7d/raw/git-get
chmod +x git-get
git config --global alias.get '!<path-to-script>/git-get'

Then add export GIT_PATH=$HOME/repos into your shell profile such as .bash_profile, .bashrc or .zshrc and close and restart your shell.
