api for adding bookmarks?

Is there and API that I can use too add Bookmarks to SourceTree?


For background, I have a tool that checks out git repositories and configures them for my developer environment.  As a step it would be a nice touch if I could add them to my SourceTree bookmarks.

BTW: There's also missing detailled documentation on configuration of Sourcetree. Having this you might add your bookmarks by manipulation of sourcetree-configuration ...


Doing so, you do not have to run Sourcetree

On Win-Systems you find the Bookmarks here: {c:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\bookmarks.xml}

I'm only familiar with SourceTree for windows - so the answer might be different for SourceTree for MAC

You can startup SourceTree only with a few different command line options - there is no option to create a bookmark directly:


sourcetree.exe --help

to see the list of available options.


sourcetree.exe -f PATH_TO_YOUR_REPO

opens sourcetree and offers to add the new repository to your bookmarks as well .....
