NAME

       ostree-pull - Download data from a remote repository

SYNOPSIS

       ostree pull {REMOTE} [BRANCH]

OPTIONS

       --commit-metadata-only
           Fetch only the commit metadata.

       --disable-fsync
           Do no invoke fsync().

       --localcache-repo
           Like git's clone --reference. Reuse the provided OSTree repo as a local object cache
           when doing HTTP fetches. May be specified multiple times.

       --untrusted
           Do not trust local sources, verify checksums and don't hardlink into source.

       --disable-static-deltas
           Do not use static deltas.

       --mirror
           Write refs suitable for a mirror, i.e. refs are stored in the heads/ directory rather
           than the remotes/ directory. This makes the target repo suitable to be exported for
           other clients to pull from as an ostree remote. If no specific refs are specified, all
           refs will be fetched (the remote must have a summary file present).

       --subpath=SUBPATH
           Only pull the provided subpath.

       --depth=DEPTH
           Traverse DEPTH parents (-1=infinite) (default: 0).

       --network-retries=N
           Specifies how many times each download should be retried upon error (default: 5)

DESCRIPTION

       This command can retrieve just a specific commit, or go all the way to performing a full
       mirror of the remote repository. If no BRANCH is specified, all configured branches are
       retrieved.

       A special syntax in the @ character allows specifying a specific commit to retrieve from a
       branch. The use cases for this are somewhat similar to pulling a specific git tag; one
       could e.g. script a system upgrade to a known-good version, rather than the latest from
       the content provider.

EXAMPLE

       $ ostree --repo=repo pull --depth=-1 --mirror remote_name

       Perform a complete mirror of the remote. (This is likely most useful if your repository is
       also archive mode)

       $ ostree --repo=repo pull remote_name exampleos/x86_64/standard

       Fetch the most recent commit to exampleos/x86_64/standard.

       $ ostree --repo=repo pull remote_name
       exampleos/x86_64/standard@98ea6e4f216f2fb4b69fff9b3a44842c38686ca685f3f55dc48c5d3fb1107be4

       Download the specific commit starting with 98ea6e as if it was the latest commit for
       exampleos/x86_64/standard.
