Gstore: Synchronize GitHub repositories made easy#

Release v0.6.1 (What's new?).

Gstore is a simple tool to synchronize GitHub repositories of your organizations.

Its main goal is to help you make backups and sync your projects automatically and easily.


Gstore uses the GitHub API to get a list of all forked, mirrored, public, and private repos owned by your organizations. If the repo already exists locally, it will update it via git-pull. Otherwise, it will properly clone the repo.

Gstore will organize your repos into the following directory structure:

+ sync-dir
├── organization_1
│   ├── repo_1
│   ├── repo_2
│   ├── ...
│   └── repo_n
├── organization_2
│   ├── repo_1
│   ├── repo_2
│   ├── ...
│   └── repo_n
└── organization_n
    ├── repo_1
    ├── repo_2
    ├── ...
    └── repo_n

Quick Start#

  1. Generate a GitHub Personal Access Token with the following permissions:

    • repo: Full control of private repositories

    • user:read: Read all user profile data

  2. Save the token in a safe place; you’ll need it when use Gstore

  3. Sync your repos:

$ gstore --token "$TOKEN" ~/backup
