webcheckout - check out repositories referenced on a web page


webcheckout [options] url [destdir]


webcheckout downloads an url and parses it, looking for version control repositories
referenced by the page. It checks out each repository into a subdirectory of the current
directory, using whatever VCS program is appropriate for that repository (git, svn, etc).

The information about the repositories is embedded in the web page using the 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 asked to check out
repositories into that directory. If there are multiple repositories to check out, each
will be checked out into a separate subdirectory of the destdir.


-a, --auth
Prefer authenticated repositories. By default, webcheckout will use anonymous
repositories when possible. If you have an account that allows you to use
authenticated repositories, you might want to use this option.

--no-act, -n
Do not actually check anything out, just print out the commands that would be run to
check out the repositories.

--quiet, -q
Quiet mode. Do not print out the commands being run. (The VCS commands may 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 guess what you mean by
partial URLs, such as "kitenet.net/~joey"'
