    Addition to GitHub CLI that clones all public and private repositories. It uses GitHub CLI and its authentication system and passes the filter options through to gh repo list.


    # npm
    $ npm install -g gh-repo-clone-all
    # Yarn
    $ yarn global add gh-repo-clone-all


    First of all, you need to have GitHub CLI installed. You can find out by running gh version. Also make sure that you are logged in so that gh-repo-clone-all can fetch the repository list. You can find out by running gh auth status.

    Now we can run the command like this:

    Usage: gh-repo-clone-all [directory] [options] [gh repo list options] 
    You can pass the supported options through from gh repo list. The options below are additional.
      -b, --branch <branch>  The branch to checkout
      -h, --help               display help for command

    See the gh repo list docs for details about the filtering options.


    The simplest case is to just clone into the current directory (which has to be empty):

    $ gh-repo-clone-all
    Cloning into /Users/foobar/repos …
    Successfully cloned john-doe/repo1.
    Successfully cloned john-doe/repo2.
    Successfully cloned john-doe/repo3.
    Successfully cloned john-doe/repo4.

    Usually you will want to provide a directory name, which is then created:

    $ gh-repo-clone-all my-repos

    gh repo list has a default limit of 30, which is rather low. So let's put it up to clone more repositories:

    $ gh-repo-clone-all my-repos --limit 100

    You can actually just put a very high limit to clone everything:

    $ gh-repo-clone-all my-repos --limit 9999

    Checking Out a Branch

    Instead of the default branch, you can checkout a specific branch like this:

    $ gh-repo-clone-all my-repos --branch renovate/lock-file-maintenance

    Note that if a branch cannot be checked out by a repository, the repository will not be cloned.


    You can use the filtering options from gh repo list to filter the repositories you would like to clone:

    # Clone only archived repositories
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --archived
    # Clone only forks
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --fork
    # Clone only repositories of a language
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --language lang
    # Clone up to a limit
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --limit x
    # Do not clone archived repositories
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --no-archived
    # Clone only private repositories
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --source
    # Clone only public repositories
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --public
    # Clone only non-forks
    $ gh-repo-clone-all --source

    The Git Protocol

    gh-repo-clone-all uses the protocol defined in GitHub CLI to clone repositories. You can find out which via gh config get git_protocol, and you can set it via gh config set git_protocol [ssh,https].
