git-annex-info






git‐annex‐info − shows information about the specified item
or the repository as a whole


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


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 uuid of a repository.

information for the repository as a whole.




−−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.


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.

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
