ghq(1) Build Status Coverage

NAME

ghq - Manage remote repository clones

DESCRIPTION

'ghq' provides a way to organize remote repository clones, like go get does. When you clone a remote repository by ghq get, ghq makes a directory under a specific root directory (by default ~/ghq) using the remote repository URL’s host and path.

$ ghq get https://github.com/x-motemen/ghq
# Runs `git clone https://github.com/x-motemen/ghq ~/ghq/github.com/x-motemen/ghq`

You can also list local repositories (ghq list).

SYNOPSIS

ghq get [-u] [-p] [--shallow] [--vcs <vcs>] [--look] [--silent] [--branch] [--no-recursive] <repository URL>|<host>/<user>/<project>|<user>/<project>|<project>
ghq list [-p] [-e] [<query>]
ghq create [--vcs <vcs>] <repository URL>|<host>/<user>/<project>|<user>/<project>|<project>
ghq root [--all]

COMMANDS

get

Clone a remote repository under ghq root directory (see DIRECTORY STRUCTURES below). If the repository is already cloned to local, nothing will happen unless '-u' ('--update') flag is supplied, in which case the local repository is updated ('git pull --ff-only' eg.). When you use '-p' option, the repository is cloned via SSH protocol.
If there are multiple ghq.root s, existing local clones are searched first. Then a new repository clone is created under the primary root if none is found.
With '--shallow' option, a "shallow clone" will be performed (for Git repositories only, 'git clone --depth 1 …​' eg.). Be careful that a shallow-cloned repository cannot be pushed to remote. Currently Git and Mercurial repositories are supported.
With '--branch' option, you can clone the repository with specified repository. This option is currently supported for Git, Mercurial, Subversion and git-svn.
The 'ghq' gets the git repository recursively by default.
We can prevent it with '--no-recursive' option.

list

List locally cloned repositories. If a query argument is given, only repositories whose names contain that query text are listed. '-e' ('--exact') forces the match to be an exact one (i.e. the query equals to project, user/project or host/user/project) If '-p' ('--full-path') is given, the full paths to the repository root are printed instead of relative ones.

root

Prints repositories' root (i.e. ghq.root). Without '--all' option, the primary one is shown.

create

Creates new repository.

CONFIGURATION

Configuration uses 'git-config' variables.

ghq.root

The path to directory under which cloned repositories are placed. See DIRECTORY STRUCTURES below. Defaults to ~/ghq.
This variable can have multiple values. If so, the last one becomes primary one i.e. new repository clones are always created under it. You may want to specify "$GOPATH/src" as a secondary root (environment variables should be expanded.)

ghq.<url>.vcs

ghq tries to detect the remote repository’s VCS backend for non-"github.com" repositories. With this option you can explicitly specify the VCS for the remote repository. The URL is matched against '<url>' using 'git config --get-urlmatch'.
Accepted values are "git", "github" (an alias for "git"), "subversion", "svn" (an alias for "subversion"), "git-svn", "mercurial", "hg" (an alias for "mercurial"), "darcs", "fossil", "bazaar", and "bzr" (an alias for "bazaar").
To get this configuration variable effective, you will need Git 1.8.5 or higher.

ghq.<url>.root

The "ghq" tries to detect the remote repository-specific root directory. With this option, you can specify a repository-specific root directory instead of the common ghq root directory.
The URL is matched against '<url>' using 'git config --get-urlmatch'.

Example configuration (.gitconfig):

[ghq "https://git.example.com/repos/"]
vcs = git
root = ~/myproj

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

GHQ_ROOT

If set to a path, this value is used as the only root directory regardless of other existing ghq.root settings.

DIRECTORY STRUCTURES

Local repositories are placed under 'ghq.root' with named github.com/user/repo.

~/ghq

|   `-- p/
|       `-- vim/
`-- github.com/
