Is there a working tree on bitbucket server? Edited

I am using bitbucket server to manage my website development. I have a Bitbucket Server instance up and running with Sourcetree on my development machine.  

My question is, I would like to write a post commit hook to rsync the code to a different server when we push to a specific branch, but where can I find the working tree / code within the Bitbucket Server setup?


Basically, I made the assumption that BB server sets up bare repos without working trees and wanted to confirm this fact.

Your assumption is correct!   The bare repos are in $BITBUCKET_HOME/shared/data/repositories.

To grab a zip or tarball of the worktree based on a given branch, I really like the free Bitbucket Server Archive Plugin maintained by Atlassian.

Personally I pair it with the free Token Authenticator add-on maintained by Taylor Jones.  This allows me to script downloads of non-public repos without needing to store credentials in my scripts.
