Git shortcut to pull with clone if no local there yet?
Is there a one-command way to get an up-to-date mirror of a remote repo? That is
- if local repo not there yet: clone
- if it's there: pull
I know I could script this around (e.g
if [ -d repo ]; then (cd repo && git pull); else git clone $repourl;fi ) , but I need the simplest possible cross-platform way (actually used for Jenkins-CI, which I know does this by default, however I need 2 repos for which support is limited).
Git has similar shortcuts for other things (eg. checkout -b, and pull itself), so I'm wondering if I missed something. Thanks!
