How do I use GitHub with Wasabi?

Backing up GitHub (Git) repository becomes essential when you want to save your repo from accidental deletion of files. Below is a script which allows you to backup a Git repo to a Wasabi bucket.

Note: Please be sure to save the Wasabi access keys in the "~/.aws/credentials" file with profile name "wasabi"


#parameters to perform backup. These parameters can also be passed as environmental variables
date=`date '+%Y%m%d%H%M%S'`

#Clone the repository to a local directory
mkdir -p $dir
git clone --mirror$account/$repository.git $dir/$repository.$date.git

#Compress the cloned repository
tar cpzf $dir/$repository.$date.git.tar.gz $dir/$repository.$date.git

#Transfer compressed repository to Wasabi
if [ -f $dir/$repository.$date.git.tar.gz ]; then
aws s3 cp $dir/$repository.$date.git.tar.gz s3://$bucket/git.$repository.$date.git.tar.gz --profile wasabi --endpoint-url=

#delete tar file and checked out folder
/bin/rm $dir/$repository.$date.git.tar.gz
/bin/rm -rf $dir/$repository.$date.git

Note that this example discusses the use of Wasabi's us-east-1 storage region. To use other Wasabi storage regions, please use the appropriate Wasabi service URL as described in this article
