Keep a git repository in sync between dom0 and an AppVm

I recently wrote how to use fossil in dom0 and sync it with a remote repository, but I was very curious to figure how to achieve this in git without using network (and nobody cares about fossil). It’s possible using git-bundle by exchanging artifacts using qvm-run :slight_smile:

@tanky0u had the same idea for replicating data between qubes

You can also use git directly over qrexec.

what do you mean?

I think he is refering to:

The primary use cases I see for this is for developing scripts for dom0, or installing things that have not been merged into the main qubes distribution yet (for example, things like https://raw.githubusercontent.com/elliotkillick/qvm-create-windows-qube). As for developing scripts, you install your editor in a qube (not in dom0) and do your development of salt scripts or bash scripts that use qvm- commands there, then transfer them to dom0 to run them.

Thought it would be nice to mention why people may want to pull git repos to dom0. :slight_smile:

I write my salt scripts in dom0, try them and commit there :smiley:
