How to push to 2 repositories at the same time and keep them in sync

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

I had the need to have 2 GitHub repositories with the same exact content.

Whenever I pushed my changes, those changes had to be sent to those 2 repositories without any extra work.

So here’s what I did.

I already had a working repository with some code, set up as the origin remote in Git.

I created a new empty repository on GitHub, and I set is as another URL for the origin remote:

git remote set-url --add --push origin [email protected]:flaviocopes/original.git

git remote set-url --add --push origin [email protected]:flaviocopes/clone.git

That’s it. Now doing a “git push” sends the changes to both repositories.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
