I want to keep track of git repositories located on remote servers (not local repositories).

What I need

Get notifications when commits are made, and what was changed (something like "new commit made, #commithash"): A notification in the notification center. A popup. A feed/RSS update. Anything just not email.

Currently what I am doing

Using SourceTree, I create a local clone.

Whenever there is a commit, I get a notification. I can what was changed in the commit.


It takes too much space on disk (currently over 1gb)

If the remote repositories are on github you can use the integrations they have built with slack or HipChat to accomplish this. I have been using the slack/github integration for six months and my only complaint is that I have to specify each repo instead of being able to use wild cards.
