Can I use automation to run github and pull/fetch?


Hi, I’m trying to use Toad Datapoint with Github and I thought one way to do it was by using an automation with the “Run_Program” action and call GitHubdesktop and have it “Fetch” from the origin. I can’t seem to figure out how to phrase the “Verb” or “Argument” to do this has anyone tried this?


Hi Arjen,

I would suggest to use directly git.exe that is shipped with GitHub desktop. Activity input should looks like this:
Program: C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\GitHubDesktop\app-1.6.4\resources\app\git\cmd\git.exe
Arguments: fetch --all
Run directory: path to your local copy of repository
