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|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 uuid of
       a repository.

       When no item is specified, displays statistics and information for the
       repository as a whole.

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.

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
