Offline is an open source command line tool for mirroring & cloning github projects.


    $> gem install offline


Offline has two modes of operation: mirror & clone. All of Offline's commands can use mirror mode and clone mode interchangeably. Mirroring creates bare repositories, like the ones you push to on a server or use locally for a gem cache. Cloning is a normal git clone, so has a working directory. More info about git's clone types.

  • mirror all public repositories for a given user:

      $> offline mirror vertis
  • mirror specific repositories:

      $> offline mirror vertis --only flynn offline
  • exclude repositories

      $> offline mirror vertis --without flynn offline
  • single private repository

      $> offline mirror vertis --only mysecretproject --password password1
  • clone all private repositories

      $> offline clone -p password --private-only MYUSER
  • clone another user's private repositories

      $> offline clone -u myuser -p password --private-only OTHERUSER


In order to run the specs you will need to provide a valid oauth token.

VALID_TEST_ACCESS_TOKEN=<your token> bundle exec rspec spec

NB: Travis CI will not run the oauth test, because have no way of supplying a key and not compromising an account.


Fork on GitHub, create a test & send a pull request.
