What is GICKUP?

Gickup is a tool that allows you to clone/mirror repositories from one hoster to another. This is useful if you want to have a backup of your repositories on another hoster or to a local server.

  • Github
  • Gitlab
  • Gitea
  • Gogs

  • Any

You can clone/mirror repositories to:

If your hoster is not listed, feel free to open an issue and I will add it.

How to make a configuration file

Here is an example

How to run the Docker image

mkdir gickup
nano conf.yml # Make your config here

The mirroring to Gitlab doesn't work, or at least I can't test it properly because I have no access to a Gitlab EE instance.

Future Ideas

  • Additional VCS
  • Add minio as a destination
