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



NAME
       git-annex-get - make content of annexed files available

SYNOPSIS
       git annex get [path ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Makes the content of annexed files available in this repository. This
       will involve copying them from a remote repository, or downloading
       them, or transferring them from some kind of key-value store.

OPTIONS
       --auto

              Rather than getting all files, get only files that don't yet
              have the desired number of copies, or that are preferred content
              of the repository. See git-annex-preferred-content(1)

       --from=remote
              Normally git-annex will choose which remotes to get the content
              from, preferring less expensive remotes. Use this option to
              specify which remote to use.

              Any files that are not available on the remote will be silently
              skipped.

       --jobs=N -JN
              Enables parallel download with up to the specified number of
              jobs running at once. For example: -J10

       file matching options
              The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files
              to get.

       --incomplete
              Resume any incomplete downloads of files that were started and
              interrupted at some point previously. Useful to pick up where
              you left off ... when you don't quite remember where that was.

              These incomplete files are the same ones that are listed as
              unused temp files by git-annex-unused(1).

              Note that the git-annex key will be displayed when downloading,
              as git-annex does not know the associated file, and the
              associated file may not even be in the current git working
              directory.

       --all  Rather than specifying a filename or path to get, this option
              can be used to get all available versions of all files.

              This is the default behavior when running git-annex in a bare
              repository.

       --branch=ref
              Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.

       --unused
              Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.

       --failed
              Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.

              Not to be confused with --incomplete which resumes only
              downloads that managed to transfer part of the content of a
              file.

       --key=keyname
              Use this option to get a specified key.

       --batch
              Enables batch mode, in which lines containing names of files to
              get are read from stdin.

              As each specified file is processed, the usual progress output
              is displayed. If the specified file's content is already
              present, or it is not an annexed file, a blank line is output in
              response instead.

              Since the usual output while getting a file is verbose and not
              machine-parseable, you may want to use --json in combination
              with --batch.

       --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-progress
              Include progress objects in JSON output.
