webcheckout - check out repositories referenced on a web page
[options] url [destdir]
downloads an url and parses it, looking for version control repositories referenced by the page. It checks out each repository intoa subdirectory of the current directory, using whatever VCS
program isappropriate for that repository (git, svn, etc).
The information about the repositories is embedded in the web page usingthe rel=vcs-* microformat, which is documented at<http://kitenet.net/~joey/rfc/rel-vcs/>.
If the optional destdir parameter is specified, VCS programs will be askedto check out repositories into that directory. If there are multiplerepositories to check out, each will be checked out into a separatesubdirectory of the destdir.
- -a, --auth
- Prefer authenticated repositories. By default, webcheckout will useanonymous repositories when possible. If you have an account thatallows you to use authenticated repositories, you might want to use thisoption.
- --no-act, -n
- Do not actually check anything out, just print out the commands that wouldbe run to check out the repositories.
- --quiet, -q
- Quiet mode. Do not print out the commands being run. (The VCS commandsmay still be noisy however.)
To use this program you will need lots of VCS
programs installed,obviously. It also depends on the perl LWP
and HTML::Parser modules.
If the perl URI module is installed, webcheckout can heuristically guesswhat you mean by partial URLs, such as ``kitenet.net/~joey'''
