Allow for repository updating rather than full clone every time #347

For those of us who have large repos (1.3Gb here) a clone takes a good chunk of time. It would be better to have the repo downloaded into a cache and used multiple times and just run reset, clean, fetch, etc to keep it in a sanitary state without having to get the whole thing every time.

this also applies to #348

Isn't this already possible with the various caching modes? /cc @jaredly

yes this is implemented

Mrono commented Jan 31, 2014

How do I use it, I didn't see any docs on it.


jaredly commented Jan 31, 2014

In the provider config section.


But it looks like the standard git provider hasn't implemented it -- sorry about that. I'll get that in this weekend.

implement caching #3

Mrono commented Jan 31, 2014

I'm using custom provider, internal gitlab server. That option is not available, only keys and url


jaredly commented Jan 31, 2014

Yup. I'll implement that on the strider-git plugin this weekend, and everything should work out for you.
