README.md

Caches git repositories locally. Every time a build happens, it uses local caches for pulling. Submodules especially, which are harder to intercept for caching.

Will also inflate submodules recursively.

With 8 submodules, a total of 150MB of data to clone:

Before caching: 13.79s user 6.36s system 18% cpu 1:49.45 total

After caching: 2.12s user 2.07s system 25% cpu 16.310 total

Cached repositories are stored in ~/.git-cow by default. You can override this by setting $GIT_COW.

Installation

Either:

  • with pypi: sudo pip install git-cachecow

Or:

  • Clone git-cachecow and add the directory to your $PATH.

Usage
