How do I make a GIT Repo auto pull changes?


I have a number of GIT repositories on a Windows 2008 R2 server, I would like to know if there is a way to get a repository to auto-pull pushed changes?

I will certainly not be doing this for the production / live environment but for staging / test environment this would significantly speed up the process of deploying the code for testing.

Any ideas of how to do this?

generally you use a CI/CD tool to manage all that sort of thing. They all run as a server and they will poll your repo for changes and do all sorts of anything using scripts.

Personally I use go, it's free without support.

These ones are also frequently mentioned: jenkins, team city, tfs (microsoft team foundation server)

If you want to do it manually, you can add a "hook" and most version control has that functionality.
