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



NAME
       git-annex-watch - watch for changes

SYNOPSIS
       git annex watch

DESCRIPTION
       Watches for changes to files in the current directory and its
       subdirectories, and takes care of automatically adding new files, as well
       as dealing with deleted, copied, and moved files. With this running as a
       daemon in the background, you no longer need to manually run git commands
       when manipulating your files.

       By default, all files in the directory will be added to the repository.
       (Including dotfiles.) To block some files from being added, use
       .gitignore files.

       By default, all files that are added are added to the annex, the same as
       when you run git annex add. If you configure annex.largefiles, files that
       it does not match will instead be added with git add.

OPTIONS
       --foreground

              Avoid forking to the background.

       --stop Stop a running daemon in the current repository.
