Multi git

This is a small git plugin that enables you to execute a single git command on multiple repositories:

Usage

If you have repositories ~/projects/repository1, ~/projects/repository2, ~/projects/repository3, ~/projects/repository4, ... First go to:

cd ~/projects

Check the status of all repositories:

git multi status

...which is the same as:

git multi

Execute "git gui" only on repositories which contain some changes:

git multi -c gui

Switch to "master" for all repositories:

git multi checkout master

Create a "test" branch on all repositories and checkout it immediately:

git multi checkout -b test

...and so on. The basic usage is simple "git multi normal_git_commands_here". In addition to this, "git multi -c git_commands" will execute "git_commands" only on changed repositories and "git multi -b" will show the current branch for all repositories.

If you want your "git multi" commands to always execute all except some repositories add them to the file ".multigit_ignore" in the same directory.

With:

git multi -a

A .tar archive named git-repositories-yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm.tar with all repositories in this directory (i.e. their .git directories) will be created.

Group by output

If you have many projects with same git commant output, for example:

git multi status

aaa:
    # On branch master
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bbb:
    # On branch TRUNK
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)
ccc:
    # On branch master
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)
ddd:
    # On branch master
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)
eee:
    # On branch TRUNK
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)

You can configure multi git to group projects with same output together:

aaa, ccc, ddd:
    # On branch master
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bbb, eee:
    # On branch TRUNK
    nothing to commit (working directory clean)

This can be done by setting:

git config --global 'multi.groupbyoutput' 1

Or reset to default with:

git config --global --unset 'multi.groupbyoutput'

Installation

Add a directory containing the script git-multi to your $PATH:

export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/multigit
