Buddy allows you to import your web sites and repositories in a couple of clicks. Whenever you create a new project with Buddy as the source provider, a list of import options will appear in the right column.
Once the import has finished, the contents of your repository will become available in the Code tab.
- upon authorization, you’ll be able to import your private GitHub repositories
- upon authorization, you’ll be able to import your private Bitbucket repositories
External Git repository
- select this option if the repo is hosted on a private server. If you have a custom private repository and would like to import it to Buddy, create a new project, select Buddy as the provider and run the following commands in the terminal:
git clone --bare CUSTOM_REPO_URL cd repo.git git remote add buddy BUDDY_REPO_URL git push buddy --mirror$$$$
CUSTOM_REPO_URL stands for the URL to the repository that you want to import, and
BUDDY_REPO_URL is the URL to the newly created Buddy repository.
You can also synchronize your repository by selecting Your Private Git Server when creating a new project. However, you will not be able to utilize Buddy's version control features.
