Config files

You can provide a config file in the YAML format to bitbucket-backup via the --config or -c option. Settings specified on the command line have precedence over settings in the config file.

The username, password and all_repos settings will be read from the config file.

For example to backup every repo the user example has access to put the following in a config file and pass it to bitbucket-backup:

username: example
password: example
all_repos: true
