For this week we were assigned to use 2-factor authentication and ssh for our github profiles. Fortunately or unfortunately (in context of this practice) I had already done the previous, so not much can be written about the previous task.I will of course insert an image to prove the previous.

As for the automation i will be automating the pull of the following repository:

Advanced Programming GitHub

This is the code used for the automatic pull (note that the server automation used for the previous DevOps assignment has been removed)

# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron.                          
#                                                                               
# Each task to run has to be defined through a single line                      
# indicating with different fields when the task will be run                    
# and what command to run for the task                                          
#                                                                               
# To define the time you can provide concrete values for                        
# minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon),                        
# and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').#                
# Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system                  
# daemon's notion of time and timezones.                                        
#                                                                               
# Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through                 
# email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected).            
#                                                                               
# For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts                   
# at 5 a.m every week with:                                                     
# 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/

# For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8)           
#

0 18 * 1-6 1 /usr/bin/git pull origin master /home/ferpart/Documents/Code/gitClones/gitAPobed

The previous script that was added to the crontab, will pull from the aforementioned GitHub repository every Tuesday at 7:00 pm (or 19:00) for the rest of the semester which is the time at which the class is taken every week. A thing to note is that i wrote the time as 18 instead of 19 because the time value starts at 0.
