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

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,

OPTIONS

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.
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.
A commit is done by default (unless annex.autocommit is set to false).
Use --no-commit to avoid committing local changes.
Use this option to specify a commit message.
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.
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.
git-annex-pull(1) and
git-annex-push(1) can be used.
