Download Github repositoryUse BackHub to download GitHub repository including all branches and metadata associated with it

Download GitHub repository, issues and wiki

Sometimes you don’t want to restore your repository directly to GitHub but you need to download the github repository to have a quick look at the files, or you want to check the details of an issue or a milestone.

You can download your GitHub repository, GitHub issues and other metadata, as well as the GitHub wiki, directly from the BackHub user interface.

Download the repository

You can choose to download the GitHub repository from any snapshot available in your backup. You’ll get a ZIP archive containing the complete repository with all its branches.

Export issues and other metadata associated with your repository

Metadata is stored in JSON files so you can easily search across all content in your preferred editor. Together with the repository, this is also a great way to archive your data on your own storage.

Download wiki

Due to limitations of the GitHub API, a wiki cannot be restored directly back to GitHub. The wiki is stored as a separate repository however. You can download the files from BackHub and push them to your GitHub repository.
