CLI (Command Line Interface) to Add Local Repo to SourceTree [Windows]

Is there any way to Add a local repository to be tracked by SourceTree without using the GUI?

I'm creating some workflow tools for an internal package manager for which it is important to be able to add a local repository to SourceTree via a command line. This will be run automatically by my tools and shouldn't require the user's input (besides maybe input of a username/password) 

If there is a file that contains a list of repositories that I can edit, that would work as well. I tried looking around in the Program Files, but didn't find anything except an XML for which tabs were open.


Using the latest SourceTree version (3.0.17) on Windows 10.

I'm afraid there isn't currently a CLI to do that, however you could amend the %localappdata%\Atlassian\Sourcetree\bookmarks.xml
