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



NAME
       git-annex-fromkey - adds a file using a specific key

SYNOPSIS
       git annex fromkey [key file]

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command can be used to manually set up a file in
       the git repository to link to a specified key.

       If the key and file are not specified on the command line, they are
       instead read from stdin. Any number of lines can be provided in this
       mode, each containing a key and filename, separated by a single space.

       Normally the key is a git-annex formatted key. However, to make it
       easier to use this to add urls, if the key cannot be parsed as a key,
       and is a valid url, an URL key is constructed from the url. Note that
       this does not register the url as a location of the key; use git-
       annex-registerurl(1) to do that.

OPTIONS
       --force

              Allow making a file link to a key whose content is not in the
              local repository. The key may not be known to git-annex at all.
