automaticly pull from remote repo

Hi,

I use one of my Bitbucket repos for a set of PHP librarys.

Once I have tested an addition to the library, i push it to my bitbucket.

Is there a way to check from command line (debian linux) when a repo was last updated?

Curently i just run 'git pull' every so often via cron from each of my machines that use the librarys, but was hoping there may be a better way, that puts less load on the bitbucket servers?

Was looking for something like :

curl https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/REPO/last_mod_date

and then if that date has changed, then i would do a full 'git pull'

Or would i be just as well running my current git pull from crontab?

thanks

M

Hi Matt,

Repository objects have a last_updated field. See the repository Resource here. Rather than polling each individual repo under your account, you could get your profile and check each repo in the repositories array.
