This plugin for Insomnia aims to ease syncing your workspaces, directories or even single requests to your Git repositories. Right now GitLab is supported only but GitHub and others will be supported soon.

How to use this plugin

Just install it via the Insomnia Plugin Hub.

As I'm currently releasing updates nearly every day and the plugin hub only updates very rarely I'd recommend to install the plugin directly from npm by its name insomnia-plugin-universal-git under Insomnia -> Preferences -> Plugins.

After installing just hit the dropdown menu located right beneath the workspace/collections name, go through the setup and start pulling/pushing your config.
