This is a small tool that will make a list of any line that matches git clone <any_git_url> in your$HOME/.zsh_history file then it will download it to a folder called tools in the directory you ran gitgrab.sh in.

The idea behind this was when moving to a new computer, I didn't want to have to go through and re-download all the tools I had gotten from github over the years. Using gitgrab I can just transfer a folder of all my tools to a new machine without having to think about it too much.
