This is a small git plugin that enables you to execute a single git command on multiple repositories:
If you have repositories ~/projects/repository1, ~/projects/repository2, ~/projects/repository3, ~/projects/repository4, ... First go to:
Check the status of all repositories:
git multi status
...which is the same as:
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.
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'
Add a directory containing the script git-multi to your $PATH:
