Create an archive of files from a named tree. More information: https://git-scm.com/docs/git-archive.

  • Create a tar archive from the contents of the current HEAD and print it to standard output:

git archive --verbose HEAD

  • Create a zip archive from the current HEAD and print it to standard output:

git archive --verbose --format=zip HEAD

  • Same as above, but write the zip archive to file:

git archive --verbose --output={{path/to/file.zip}} HEAD

  • Create a tar archive from the contents of the latest commit on a specific branch:

git archive --output={{path/to/file.tar}} {{branch_name}}

  • Create a tar archive from the contents of a specific directory:

git archive --output={{path/to/file.tar}} HEAD:{{path/to/directory}}

  • Prepend a path to each file to archive it inside a specific directory:

git archive --output={{path/to/file.tar}} --prefix={{path/to/prepend}}/ HEAD
