The usage of FastGit is basically relied on
git . For common GitHub operations, you can use the command
git clone https://github.com/author/repo
To use FastGit, you need to change it into:
git clone https://hub.fastgit.org/author/repo
Just like what you see, FastGit is physically a proxy of GitHub, and what you need to do is just replacing the URL.
You can also edit
git configurations to take an easier way to use our service.
You can also change the configuration of
git directly, replacing the link of GitHub entirely with FastGit:
git config --global url."https://hub.fastgit.org/".insteadOf "https://github.com/" git config protocol.https.allow always
Don't forget to check if FastGit is down when you are troubleshooting network errors, even though we offer SLA guarantees of up to 0% availability.
We do NOT support that clone repositories which are over 2GiB. Read more https://github.com/FastGitORG/nginx-conf/issues/14 (opens new window) and https://github.com/FastGitORG/nginx-conf/commit/61a41bc0bbb012fc9a6e54b198a10874eeaf9309 (opens new window).
With the growth of FastGit, we will deploy more resources to support our speed-up service. You can find the list of our nodes in the chapter Nodes.
# The Usage of Web
FastGit also supplies basic supports for the common GitHub Web operations. You can directly access nodes with Web supports.
Due to the safety concerns, we banned sensitive things, like
Session . That means you are not able to do sensitive operations such as signing in GitHub via FastGit.
# Download Releases or Source Code Archives
push operations, FastGit already has provided perfect support. We can use the command below to download releases & source code archives.
# Release # If your downalod link is: https://github.com/A/A/releases/download/1.0/1.0.tar.gz , then you use: wget https://download.fastgit.org/A/A/releases/download/1.0/1.0.tar.gz # Codeload # If your download link is: https://hub.fastgit.org/A/A/archive/master.zip # or https://codeload.github.com/A/A/zip/master wget https://download.fastgit.org/A/A/archive/master.zip
# SSH Operation
We also support SSH clone. Just replace github.com to fastgit.org to enjoy. Due to some unresistible factors, we are no longer to provide SSH clone service.
26/06/2021 Update: As the 2FA issue persists, it is difficult to get much done via HTTPS. In view of the current situation, we have continued the SSH operation service.
Unlike before, we have split the domain where the SSH service is located, in other words it is not possible to work by replacing the address with FastGit.org.
Our SSH operation address is ssh.fastgit.org, and we can speed things up by simply replacing the address.
# For the Raw Proxy
We also have proxy for https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ (opens new window).
The URL is: https://raw.fastgit.org/ (opens new window).
# What to do if you have problems with FastGit
- Make sure your network and DNS are working properly
- Please check https://status.fastgit.org (opens new window) and https://github.com/FastGitORG/uptime (opens new window) to confirm if FastGit is facing potential service unavailability
- Change your DNS to AliPublic public DNS to avoid potential DNS pollution issues
- Try to communicate with the FastGit IP via Tcpping
