RightScraper provides a simple interface to download and keep repositories up-to-date using various protocols.
The supported protocols include:
git: RightScraper will clone then pull repos from git
SVN: RightScraper will checkout then update SVN repositories
tarballs: Includes uncompressed (.tar), gzip (.tgz, .gzip) and bzip (.bzip, .bzip2) tar files.
The scraper first inspects the local directory to see if the repo has already been scraped and if so runs some basic checks before it tries to update it. Incremental updates are not supported with tar files.
The idea is to have many repos that need to be downloaded/kept up-to-date in a central place. Point the scraper to this central place and it will take care of creating unique local directories for each remote repository and keep that mapping to download changes incrementally upon request.
