git-http-fetch(1)                 Git Manual                 git-http-fetch(1)


NAME

       git-http-fetch - Download from a remote Git repository via HTTP


SYNOPSIS

       git http-fetch [-c] [-t] [-a] [-d] [-v] [-w <filename>] [--recover] [--stdin | --packfile=<hash> | <commit>] <URL>



DESCRIPTION

       Downloads a remote Git repository via HTTP.

       This command always gets all objects. Historically, there were three
       options -a, -c and -t for choosing which objects to download. They are
       now silently ignored.


OPTIONS

       commit-id
           Either the hash or the filename under [URL]/refs/ to pull.

       -a, -c, -t
           These options are ignored for historical reasons.

       -v
           Report what is downloaded.

       -w <filename>
           Writes the commit-id into the specified filename under
           $GIT_DIR/refs/<filename> on the local end after the transfer is
           complete.

       --stdin
           Instead of a commit id on the command line (which is not expected
           in this case), git http-fetch expects lines on stdin in the format

               <commit-id>['\t'<filename-as-in--w>]

       --packfile=<hash>
           For internal use only. Instead of a commit id on the command line
           (which is not expected in this case), git http-fetch fetches the
           packfile directly at the given URL and uses index-pack to generate
           corresponding .idx and .keep files. The hash is used to determine
           the name of the temporary file and is arbitrary. The output of
           index-pack is printed to stdout. Requires --index-pack-args.

       --index-pack-args=<args>
           For internal use only. The command to run on the contents of the
           downloaded pack. Arguments are URL-encoded separated by spaces.

       --recover
           Verify that everything reachable from target is fetched. Used after
           an earlier fetch is interrupted.
