git-annex-info(1) General Commands Manual git-annex-info(1)

NAME

git-annex-info - information about an item or the repository

SYNOPSIS

git annex info [directory|file|treeish|remote|description|uuid ...]

DESCRIPTION

Displays statistics and other information for the specified item, which can be a directory, or a file, or a treeish, or a remote, or the description or uuid of a repository.

When no item is specified, displays statistics and information for the local repository and all known annexed files.

OPTIONS

--fast
Only show the data that can be gathered quickly.
--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-error-messages
Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
--bytes
Show file sizes in bytes, disabling the default nicer units.
--batch
Enable batch mode, in which a line containing an item is read from stdin, the information about it is output to stdout, and repeat.
-z
Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
file matching options
When a directory is specified, the git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to select the files in the directory that are included in the statistics.
Also the git-annex-common-options(1) can be used.

EXAMPLES

Suppose you want to run "git annex get .", but would first like to see how much disk space that will use. Then run:

git annex info --fast . --not --in here
