ghq - Remote repo management tool

In all of my 3 Macs, I store all of my code within ~/Code to make it persistent and easy to use across the machines. I use ghq to manage the inner structure.

To use ghq, simply run it anywhere in the terminal with your desired Github repository user/repo or full URL:

$ ghq get narze/garden-astro
# or
$ ghq get

If the code is not on the machine yet. The command will clone narze/garden-astro to ~/Code/ (Default root path is ~/ghq but you can override ghq.root in your gitconfig.)

I make a command line alias and add -l parameter (look) to change the path after cloning, and -p to clone with SSH url for using with private Github repositories.

alias gq='ghq get -l -p'

I can just type gq narze/garden-astro in a new terminal session and start coding right away.
