diy git remote on nas storage - 06-26-22
Got a repo with sensitive data you don’t want to push to a remote server you don’t control? Have a NAS setup on our home network? Here is how to setup a folder on that NAS to act as a git remote.
Change directorys to the NAS and clone the local folder with the –bare option.
$ cd /Volumes/travis/git $ git clone --bare ~/.password-store
This creates /Volumes/travis/git/.password-store but without a working directory. Basically its just the /.git part of the repo.
Setup the NAS file path to be a git remote on the repo.
$ cd ~/.password-store $ git remote add nas /Volumes/travis/git/travisshears.com.git ...
Done. Now jus push.
$ git push nas Enumerating objects: 8, done. Counting objects: 100% (8/8), done. Delta compression using up to 10 threads Compressing objects: 100% (5/5), done. Writing objects: 100% (5/5), 1.30 KiB | 1.30 MiB/s, done.
