NAME

git-annex sync - synchronize local repository with remotes

SYNOPSIS

git annex sync [remote ...]

DESCRIPTION

This command synchronizes the local repository with its remotes.

This command first commits any local changes to files that have previously been added to the repository. Then it does the equivilant of git-annex-pull(1) followed by git-annex-push(1).

However, unlike those commands, this command does not transfer annexed content by default. That will change in a future version of git-annex, when syncing with repositories that have preferred content configured.

OPTIONS

  • --content, --no-content, -g

    The --content option causes the content of annexed files to also be pulled and pushed.

    The --no-content and -g options cause the content of annexed files to not be pulled and pushed.

    The annex.synccontent configuration can be set to true to make --content be enabled by default.

  • --content-of=path -C path

    This option causes the content of annexed files in the given path to also be pulled and pushed.

    This option can be repeated multiple times with different paths.

    Note that this option does not prevent exporting other files to an "exporttree=yes" remote.

  • --commit, --no-commit

    A commit is done by default (unless annex.autocommit is set to false).

    Use --no-commit to avoid committing local changes.

  • --message=msg -m msg

    Use this option to specify a commit message.

  • --pull, --no-pull

    Use this option to disable pulling.

    When remote.<name>.annex-sync is set to false, pulling is disabled for that remote, and using --pull will not enable it.

  • --push, --no-push

    Use this option to disable pushing.

    When remote.<name>.annex-sync is set to false, pushing is disabled for that remote, and using --push will not enable it.

  • Also all options supported by git-annex-pull(1) and git-annex-push(1) can be used.

  • Also the git-annex-common-options(1) can be used.
