git annex

Manage files with Git, without checking their contents in. When a file is annexed, its content is moved into a key-value store, and a symlink is made that points to the content. More information:

  • Initialize a repo with Git annex:

git annex init

  • Add a file:

git annex add {{path/to/file_or_directory}}

  • Show the current status of a file or directory:

git annex status {{path/to/file_or_directory}}

  • Synchronize a local repository with a remote:

git annex {{remote}}

  • Get a file or directory:

git annex get {{path/to/file_or_directory}}

  • Display help:

git annex help
