  • Configure multiple working repositories.
  • Batch git commands with subcommands: add, branch, checkout, commit, diff, fetch, init, merge, mv, pull, push, rebase, reset, rm, show, switch, status and tag.
  • Batch API calls on GitHub: create/close/reopen issues, create/close/reopen/merge pull requests and delete branches by name.
  • Batch Poetry commands such as: add, version patch, install or update.


  • Create an auth token for GitHub, with the repo privileges enabled by clicking on Generate new token. You will be asked to select scopes for the token. Which scopes you choose will determine what information and actions you will be able to perform against the API. You should be careful with the ones prefixed with write:, delete: and admin: as these might be quite destructive. You can find description of each scope in docs here.

Important: safeguard your token (once created you won't be able to see it again).

  • Install git (optional) - this is needed for all git commands. For colored outputs please use the configuration:
$ git config --global color.ui always


You can install Git Portfolio via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install git-portfolio

Basic usage

  1. Create initial configuration with:
$ gitp config init
  1. Execute all the commands you want. Eg.:
$ gitp issues create  # create same issue for all projects
$ gitp checkout -b new-branch  # checks out new branch new-branch in all projects
$ gitp poetry version minor  # bumps minor version of all projects that have pyproject.toml version

Note: by convention GitHub commands are always the resource name and action: eg. branches delete, issues create and prs merge (for pull requests). This avoid conflicts with batch git commands, as in gitp branch (executes git command) and gitp branches delete (execute operations using GitHub API).
