Downloads git sub dir

Usage

python get_git_sub_dir.py user/repo <options>
python get_git_sub_dir.py user/private_repo --private <options>

Options Flags:

  • --private: the repo is private (default is False, username and password will be requested)
  • -r: recursive download (default is True)
  • -p: filepath
  • -b: branch

Example

Let's download the docs from twitter bootstrap https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/tree/master/docs

python get_git_sub_dir.py twbs/bootstrap -p docs

If we don't want it to be recursive

python get_git_sub_dir.py twbs/bootstrap -p docs -r False

If we want a specific file

python get_git_sub_dir.py twbs/bootstrap -p docs/examples/blog/index.html

If we want to download from a specific branch (say fix-15534)

python get_git_sub_dir.py twbs/bootstrap -p docs/examples/blog/index.html -b fix-15534
