NAME
       git-annex-webapp - launch webapp

SYNOPSIS
       git annex webapp

DESCRIPTION
       Opens a web app, that allows easy setup of a git-annex repository, and
       control of the git-annex assistant. If the assistant is not already
       running, it will be started.

       By default, the webapp can only be accessed from localhost, and running
       it opens a browser window.

OPTIONS
       --listen=address

              Useful for using the webapp on a remote computer. This makes the
              webapp listen on the specified address.

              This disables running a local web browser, and outputs the url you
              can use to open the webapp.

              Set annex.listen in the git config to make the webapp always
              listen on an address.

USING HTTPS
       When using the webapp on a remote computer, you'll almost certainly want
       to enable HTTPS. The webapp will use HTTPS if it finds a
       .git/annex/privkey.pem and .git/annex/certificate.pem. Here's one way to
       generate those files, using a self-signed certificate:

        openssl genrsa -out .git/annex/privkey.pem 4096
        openssl req -new -x509 -key .git/annex/privkey.pem >
       .git/annex/certificate.pem
