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



NAME
       git-annex-lock - lock files to prevent modification

SYNOPSIS
       git annex lock [path ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Lock the specified annexed files, to prevent them from being modified.
       When no files are specified, all annexed files in the current directory
       are locked.

       Locking a file changes how it is stored in the git repository (from a
       pointer file to a symlink), so this command will make a change that you
       can commit.

OPTIONS
       file matching options

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

       --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.
