$ pip install reps
$ re


Detecting your repositories

Usage of re is centered around the contents of .reconfig in the current working directory. To generate a .reconfig from some repositories you have at hand...

$ re list
    origin.url =
    origin.url =
    origin.url =
> Run with -u to update .reconfig

Re-run with -u to write the detected config to .reconfig.

Updating repositories

The most common use case for re is simply syncing your repos.

$ re pull
> Fetching ansicolor
> Fetching ejabberd
> Fetching xmonad
> Merging ansicolor
-> Setting up local tracking branch develop
> Merging ejabberd
-> Setting up local tracking branch 1.1.x
-> Setting up local tracking branch 2.1.x
-> Setting up local tracking branch obsolete_3alpha
-> Setting up local tracking branch 2.0.x
> Merging xmonad

re simply runs git in the background. Fetching and merging are done in separate steps. During merging git may prompt you to resolve merge conflicts, so by fetching all the repos first we can do away with all the network io first and avoid interleaving that with interactive use of git.
