NAME

       git-lfs-fetch - Download all Git LFS files for a given ref

SYNOPSIS

       git lfs fetch [options] [remote [ref...]]

DESCRIPTION

       Download  Git  LFS objects at the given refs from the specified remote. See DEFAULT REMOTE
       and DEFAULT REFS for what happens if you don´t specify.

       This does not update the working copy.

OPTIONS

       -I paths --include=paths
              Specify lfs.fetchinclude just for this invocation; see INCLUDE AND EXCLUDE

       -X paths --exclude=paths
              Specify lfs.fetchexclude just for this invocation; see INCLUDE AND EXCLUDE

       --recent
              Download objects referenced by recent branches & commits in addition to those  that
              would otherwise be downloaded. See RECENT CHANGES

       --all  Download  all objects referenced by any commit that is reachable; this is primarily
              for  backup  /  migration  purposes.  Cannot   be   combined   with   --recent   or
              --include/--exclude.  Ignores  any globally configured include and exclude paths to
              ensure that all objects are downloaded.

       --prune -p
              Prune old and unreferenced objects after fetching, equivalent to  running  git  lfs
              prune afterwards. See git-lfs-prune(1) for more details.

INCLUDE AND EXCLUDE

       You  can configure Git LFS to only fetch objects to satisfy references in certain paths of
       the repo, and/or to exclude certain paths of the  repo,  to  reduce  the  time  you  spend
       downloading things you do not use.

       In  gitconfig, set lfs.fetchinclude and lfs.fetchexclude to comma-separated lists of paths
       to include/exclude in the fetch (pattern matching as per golang´s filepath.Match()).  Only
       paths  which are matched by fetchinclude and not matched by fetchexclude will have objects
       fetched for them.

   Examples:
       ·   git config lfs.fetchinclude "textures,images/foo*"

           This will only fetch objects referenced in paths in the  textures  folder,  and  files
           called foo* in the images folder

       ·   git config lfs.fetchinclude "*.jpg,*.png,*.tga"

           Only fetch JPG/PNG/TGA files, wherever they are in the repository

       ·   git config lfs.fetchexclude "media/reallybigfiles"

           Don´t  fetch  any LFS objects referenced in the folder media/reallybigfiles, but fetch
           everything else

       ·   git config lfs.fetchinclude "media"
           git config lfs.fetchexclude "media/excessive"

           Only fetch LFS objects in the  ´media´  folder,  but  exclude  those  in  one  of  its
           subfolders.

DEFAULT REMOTE

       Without arguments, fetch downloads from the default remote. The default remote is the same
       as for git fetch, i.e. based on  the  remote  branch  you´re  tracking  first,  or  origin
       otherwise.

DEFAULT REFS

       If  no refs are given as arguments, the currently checked out ref is used. In addition, if
       enabled, recently changed refs and commits are  also  included.  See  RECENT  CHANGES  for
       details.

RECENT CHANGES

       If  the  --recent option is specified, or if the gitconfig option lfs.fetchrecentalways is
       true, then after the current ref (or those in the arguments) is fetched,  we  also  search
       for  ´recent´  changes  to  fetch objects for, so that it´s more convenient to checkout or
       diff those commits without incurring further downloads.

       What changes are considered ´recent´ is based on a number of gitconfig options:

       ·   lfs.fetchrecentrefsdays If non-zero, includes branches which  have  commits  within  N
           days    of    the    current    date.    Only   local   refs   are   included   unless
           lfs.fetchrecentremoterefs is true. The default is 7 days.

       ·   lfs.fetchrecentremoterefs  If  true,  fetches  remote  refs  (for  the  remote  you´re
           fetching)  as well as local refs in the recent window. This is useful to fetch objects
           for remote branches you might want to check out later. The default is true; if you set
           this  to false, fetching for those branches will only occur when you either check them
           out (losing the advantage of fetch  --recent),  or  create  a  tracking  local  branch
           separately then fetch again.

       ·   lfs.fetchrecentcommitsdays  In  addition to fetching at branches, also fetches changes
           made within N days of the latest commit on the branch. This is useful if you´re  often
           reviewing recent changes. The default is 0 (no previous changes).

       ·   lfs.fetchrecentalways Always operate as if --recent was provided on the command line.

EXAMPLES

       ·   Fetch the LFS objects for the current ref from default remote

           git lfs fetch

       ·   Fetch the LFS objects for the current ref AND recent changes from default remote

           git lfs fetch --recent

       ·   Fetch the LFS objects for the current ref from a secondary remote ´upstream´

           git lfs fetch upstream

       ·   Fetch the LFS objects for a branch from origin

           git lfs fetch origin mybranch

       ·   Fetch the LFS objects for 2 branches and a commit from origin

           git lfs fetch origin master mybranch e445b45c1c9c6282614f201b62778e4c0688b5c8
