Push an entire repository

Recommended Posts

It's really frustrating not to be able to push an entire repository (one that was created on the local server that I want to now push as a new repository in the cloud). I have a handful of repositories I want to upload to our new cloud server and as far as I can tell I have to connect to cloud server and create them all before I can push any data to them.

This is with the GUI, at least. Perhaps there's some esoteric command-line way.

Hi,

- The Plastic replica works between two Plastic repos. So you will need to create a clean new repo if you want to clone from a remote one. You can handle everything via command line:

cm mkrep repo@cloud
cm clone repo@organziation@cloud repo@local

Regards,
Carlos.

I get what you're saying. We prefer the GUI (as you seem to in your writings), and wish it wasn't so clunky to do this. There's no technical reason it couldn't create the repo if it doesn't exist, or a branch you are pushing/pulling if it doesn't exist (with a checkbox to do so). The only reason is "because we haven't done it that way before", unless I'm missing something. It would be a nice convenience for users who aren't learning yet another command line because they are using the GUI.

I've run a test and actually the "cm clone" command is creating the destination repo if it still doesn't exist.

Carlos.

Okay. My point would be for GUI parity in features. This feature seems to be missing there.
