Create new repo on Bitbucket from Git Bash terminal?

Is it possible to create a new repository in Bitbucket by using command line Git? I have tried the following:

git clone --bare https://username@bitbucket.org/username/new_project.git


I get this message:


Cloning into bare repository 'new_project.git'...

fatal:
https://username@bitbucket.org/username/new_project.git/info/refs
not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?


It would be nice to do this without going to the web app.

Answer

You can use the Bitbucket REST API and cURL. For example:

curl --user login:pass https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/ \
--data name=REPO_NAME

to create new repository named REPO_NAME.

See Use the Bitbucket REST APIs for more information.

UPDATE

For Bitbucket V2 specifically, see POST a new repo
