auto_commit_and_push() {

    git add --all
    git commit -am "-"
    ping -c 1 github.com > /dev/null && git push origin --all || echo "not connected in $dir"
}

auto_commit_and_push /Users/Storage/Treasury
# auto_commit_and_push /path/to/another/repository
# auto_commit_and_push /path/to/yet/another/repository

And call it from crontab -e

System is not finding the credentials, pa sam probao sa setovanjem HOME varijable, i nije,

Furthermore, you have the option to write the cron task in the specified format (execute crontab -e and insert the following cronjob).

          • /bin/bash -l -c ‘cd /var/www/project && ./autogit-project.sh » /home/cron_log.log 2>&1’

You can examine the cron jobs of the intended user responsible for

Problem: Keychain access in crontab

git config credential.helper

result: osxkeychain

Once installed, just tell Git to use the KeyChain to store your credentials:

git config –global credential.helper osxkeychain

Next time you clone a repo via HTTPS, you’ll be prompt for granting access to KeyChain. That’s it.

Suština je da crontab ne vidi keychain, ali hoće da interact with the “System roots” keychain unless you specify a keychain as I’ve done in my crontab, tako da sam pokušao

Git’s built-in credential helpers (Windows: wincred, macOS: osxkeychain, Linux: gnome-keyring/libsecret)

Međutim, imao sam grešku u crontab-u, pa sam morao da prebacim na unencrypted plaintext storovanje u fajlu: GitHub Commit Bot to Stack Your Contributions Graph - blog.karenying.com

git config --global credential.helper store
~/.git-credentials

I onda je proradilo, ali to nije baš idealno rešenje.

I dalje tražim rešenje da zadržim keychain kao mesto za password-e:

git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain

Takođe, sa lakoćom radi with the mac launchd with no password prompt and also Apple says that better way is to use launchd instead of cron


Copy the github.com passwords to the system keychain.

Probaj da pokreneš u CLI security list-keychains gde dobijaš i “login.keychain-db” i “System.keychain”, a zatim u crontab

*/1  * * * * security list-keychains -d user

i videćeš da user keychain nije čitan iz crontab-a, jer dobijaš samo “/Library/Keychains/System.keychain”

Pokreni alat Keychain Access, zatim uradi search za “github.com”, zatim desni click i “Copy”, zatim opy that service and password from login.keychians to syste,.keychains as cronjob by default looks into system keychains and not login keychains. This worked for me.

Obrati pažnju da ima find-generic-password i find-internet-password

security find-internet-password -w -s 'github.com' -a 'username'
sudo security add-internet-password -s 'sisoje'  -a 'username' -w 'password123' "/Library/Keychains/System.keychain"

kako bi bilo da dodam keychain u search list?

Ovako:

Cron would only load from the system keychain, so the password has to be there.
