    clone.io

    A tool for cloning resources and their subresources, and operating on them (both the clones and the origins) in a manner similar to git.

    installing

    $ npm install -g clone.io

    listing types of resources

    $ clone.io list
    git
    github

    viewing the url matchers

    $ clone.io github
    domain: github.com
    matchers:
      user: https://github.com/:username
      repo: https://github.com/:username/:repo

    cloning

    big resource

    This will create a git repository in a directory called substack, download and commit his metadata, and clone all of his repositories into it.

    $ clone.io https://github.com/substack

    smaller resource

    This will clone express, add /issues and /wiki to .git/info/exclude, create an issues repository and use the GitHub API to pull down the issues and commit them as YAML files, and clone the wiki into the wiki directory.

    $ clone.io http://github.com/visionmedia/express

    getting the rest

    Note that when cloning github user account (a big resource), it doesn't pull in as much of each repository (a smaller subresource) as cloning an individual repository does. To get the rest of a repository, after grabbing by cloning the user's account:

    $ clone.io http://github.com/substack
    $ cd substack/traverse
    $ ls -d issues
    ls: issues: No such file or directory
    $ clone.io pull
    $ ls -d issues
    issues

    updating

    You guessed it! It will pull down the default amount of data for the level of resource plus whatever's been pulled down so far.

    $ clone pull

    status

    Not yet implemented. Needs at least one child service implemented first.

    todo

    • Make the CLI design a closer match to git
    • Design the CLI to pull down less by default
    • Separate cloning more resources from updating the resources already cloned
    • Keep the services and the commands separate
    • Implement a child service
    • Implement integration
