Working with remote repository without downloading it completely


Now I using JGit library to working with some repositories on GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket in my plugin for Jira. I need to get all commits from remote repository and working with them (getting author, date, diffs and other). I clone repository to local system and working with them, but it is nesessary do it without downloading repository completely.

I have some way to resolve this issue:

  • using 
  • using GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket API
  • using cmd commands

Which way is correct or does you have another? It would be nice if you shared examples.
