Is there a Python way without using a subprocess to clone a git repository? I’m up for using any sort of modules you recommend.
Now we will see solution for issue: Python way to clone a git repository
There is GitPython. Haven’t heard of it before and internally, it relies on having the git executables somewhere; additionally, they might have plenty of bugs. But it could be worth a try.
How to clone:
import git git.Git("/your/directory/to/clone").clone("git://gitorious.org/git-python/mainline.git")
(It’s not nice and I don’t know if it is the supported way to do it, but it worked.)
