lei-blob - display a git blob, reconstructing from mail if necessary


lei blob [OPTIONS] OID


Display a git blob. The blob may correspond to a message from the local store, any local external, or blobs associated with a project git repository (if run from a git (working) directory). For blobs which do not exist, it will attempt to recreate the blob using patch emails.


Specify an additional .git/ directory to scan. This option may be given multiple times.

Default: the output of "git rev-parse --git-dir"

Do not look in the git repository of the current working directory.
Do not look in mail storage for "OID". This is implied by "--oid-a", "--path-a", and "--path-b".
Provide pre-image object ID as a hint for reconstructing "OID".
Provide pre-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing "OID".
Provide post-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing "OID".
Provide more feedback on stderr.

The following options are also supported and are described in lei-q(1).

Remote externals only get queried when the blob needs to be reconstructed from patch emails.
