NAME

       borg-placeholders - Details regarding placeholders

DESCRIPTION

       Repository   (or   Archive)   URLs,   --prefix  and  --remote-path  values  support  these
       placeholders:

       {hostname}
              The (short) hostname of the machine.

       {fqdn} The full name of the machine.

       {reverse-fqdn}
              The full name of the machine in reverse domain name notation.

       {now}  The current local date and time, by default  in  ISO-8601  format.   You  can  also
              supply your own format string, e.g. {now:%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S}

       {utcnow}
              The  current UTC date and time, by default in ISO-8601 format.  You can also supply
              your own format string, e.g. {utcnow:%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S}

       {user} The user name (or UID, if no name is available) of the user running borg.

       {pid}  The current process ID.

       {borgversion}
              The version of borg, e.g.: 1.0.8rc1

       {borgmajor}
              The version of borg, only the major version, e.g.: 1

       {borgminor}
              The version of borg, only major and minor version, e.g.: 1.0

       {borgpatch}
              The version of borg, only major, minor and patch version, e.g.: 1.0.8

       If literal curly braces need to be used, double them for escaping:

          borg create /path/to/repo::{{literal_text}}

       Examples:

          borg create /path/to/repo::{hostname}-{user}-{utcnow} ...
          borg create /path/to/repo::{hostname}-{now:%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S} ...
          borg prune --prefix '{hostname}-' ...

       NOTE:
          systemd uses a difficult, non-standard syntax for command lines in unit files (refer to
          the systemd.unit(5) manual page).

          When  invoking  borg  from unit files, pay particular attention to escaping, especially
          when using the now/utcnow placeholders, since systemd performs its own %-based variable
          replacement even in quoted text. To avoid interference from systemd, double all percent
          signs                    ({hostname}-{now:%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S}                    becomes
          {hostname}-{now:%%Y-%%m-%%d_%%H:%%M:%%S}).
