I have just installed Magit and so far all is going great! However, I have a lot of GitHub repos that I would like to fetch via Magit. Is there a way to fetch all repos from GitHub?
Magit does not come with a command to do that, but implementing it is easy.
(defun my-magit-fetch-all-repositories () "Run `magit-fetch-all' in all repositories returned by `magit-list-repos`." (interactive) (dolist (repo (magit-list-repos)) (message "Fetching in %s..." repo) (let ((default-directory repo)) (magit-fetch-all (magit-fetch-arguments))) (message "Fetching in %s...done" repo)))
You will have to customize
magit-repository-directories to tell Magit about the repositories
magit-list-repos should return
That function is also used when invoking
magit-status with a prefix argument to jump to some repository and other things. If you want to only fetch in some of the returned repositories, then you will have to implement some filtering. This could for example be based on the value of
(magit-get "remote.origin.url") to limit to only repositories from Github.
