Git status in regards to multiple remote repositories

I have a script which emails me a reminder if I’ve forgotten to commit or push some code on each of my 40+ repositories.

With 2 of my projects, I have followed the answers in these posts, where I have set-up “git-push” to push to multiple repositories:

pull/push from multiple remote locations

git push to multiple repositories simultaneously

So I have a .git/config file with:

[core]
    repositoryformatversion = 0
    filemode = true
    bare = false
    logallrefupdates = true
[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
[remote "origin"]
    url = https://www.example.com/git/project/
    url = git@github.com:username/project.git
[remote "example"]
    url = https://www.example.com/git/project/
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/example/*
[remote "github"]
    url = git@github.com:username/project.git
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/github/*

This works well when it comes to doing a git push/pull.

With the script I have used:

git status --short

But this only shows un-commited changes… even without the “–short” flag, it does not show what normally appears with only 1 remote:

Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 1 commit.

Trying to run any of the following “diff” commands also doesn’t seem to work… well it does on the first time, but it seems to remember the remote files at the date/time when it was setup, so as you make more changes it compares them against that version in history:

git diff --name-status "origin";
git diff --name-status "origin/master";
git diff --name-status "example/master";
git diff --name-status "github/master";

Any thoughts? I am fairly new to Git.

  • Why is the reference for a package to be installed from a pull request different for Yarn and original NPM client?
  • linking git and github repositories
  • prevent authors from merging their own code on github
  • Add validation checks for GitHub pull requests
  • git stuck on Unpacking Objects phase
  • Unique git url for github repo with multiple branches?
  • Pull request in GitHub does not show merge conflict was fixed and doesn't show my commits
  • Why Github doesn't show my contributions even though I added my email address?
  • One Solution collect form web for “Git status in regards to multiple remote repositories”

    I believe this method is possibly a bit buggy, as it seems to remember a commit ref for each remote, but this does not get updated when doing a push/pull… so when checking via a diff, its always going to look at the old commit ref for a comparison.

    While its not a solution to this setup, I have gone back to a single remote setup, but edited it so that it has 2 urls… so while the pull only happens from one remote, when I push, it goes to two:

    [core]
        repositoryformatversion = 0
        filemode = true
        bare = false
        logallrefupdates = true
    [branch "master"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/master
    [remote "origin"]
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
        url = https://www.example.com/git/project/
        url = git@github.com:username/project.git
    

    Note: This only works for now, as I’m the only committer.
