NAME

git-annex mirror - mirror content of files to/from another repository

SYNOPSIS

git annex mirror [path ...] [--to=remote|--from=remote]

DESCRIPTION

This causes a destination repository to mirror a source repository.

Each specified file in the source repository is mirrored to the destination repository. If a file's content is present in the source repository, it is copied to the destination repository. If a file's content is not present in the source repository, it will be dropped from the destination repository when the numcopies setting allows.

Note that mirror does not sync the git repository, but only the file contents. Use git-annex-sync(1) for that.

OPTIONS

  • --to=remote

    Use the local repository as the source repository, and mirror its contents to the remote.

  • --from=remote

    Use the remote as the source repository, and mirror its contents to the local repository.

  • --jobs=N -JN

    Enables parallel transfers with up to the specified number of jobs running at once. For example: -J10

  • --all

    Mirror all objects stored in the git annex, not only objects used by currently existing files.

    However, this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting when dropping files.

    This is the default behavior when running git-annex in a bare repository.

  • --branch=ref

    Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.

    Like --all, this bypasses checking the .gitattributes annex.numcopies setting when dropping files.

  • --unused

    Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.

  • --failed

    Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.

  • file matching options

    The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to mirror.

  • --json

    Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.

  • --json-progress

    Include progress objects in JSON output.
