Sometimes you need to auto-sync Gitlab repos to Github, so here's what you have to do.
We need to add a
post-receive hook in Gitlab's repo, on the Gitlab's server, which will trigger every time you do a push to the Gitlab's repo.
To add the
post-receive hook, you must follow the steps:
A. On the Gitlab server:
su git bash ssh-keygen cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
Add this pub key to Github, in here: https://github.com/Organization/RepoName/settings/keys, with write access.
B. On the Gitlab server, you should now be able to:
ssh -T email@example.com
C. On the Gitlab server:
cd ~/git-data/repositories/Organization/RepoName.git git remote add github firstname.lastname@example.org:Organization/RepoName.git mkdir custom_hooks cd custom_hooks nano post-receive
add the following in the
#!/usr/bin/env bash git push --mirror github
then write to file, exit, and:
chmod +x post-receive
That's about everything, let us know if you have questions.
