What should be used to write BitBucket plugin to fill newly created repositories with a content?

I need to write BitBucket plugin, which will create default branch and will place .gitignore and adjusted (specifically for the new repository) README.md.

Following the tutorials it was easy to start and the to add @EventListener component by creating class below. The @EventListener method fires as soon as new repository is created. However, how can I

  • create a branch in the brand new repository and
  • add a couple of files to it?

Seems RefService can help with creation of the branch, but Spring fails to autowire RefService as it does not find any implementations of this interface.

  • how can I get a referenct to RefService implementation or
  • should I use something else to initialize the content of new repository
