NAME

       git-annex-get - make content of annexed files available

SYNOPSIS

       git annex get [path ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Makes the content of annexed files available in this repository. This will involve copying
       them from a remote repository, or downloading them, or transferring them from some kind of
       key-value store.

OPTIONS

       --auto

              Rather  than  getting  all  files,  get  only files that don't yet have the desired
              number of copies, or that  are  preferred  content  of  the  repository.  See  git-
              annex-preferred-content(1)

       --from=remote
              Normally  git-annex  will  choose which remotes to get the content from, preferring
              remotes with lower costs. Use this option to specify which remote to use.

              Any files that are not available on the remote will be silently skipped.

       --jobs=N -JN
              Enables parallel download with up to the specified number of jobs running at  once.
              For example: -J10

              When  files  can  be  downloaded from multiple remotes, enabling parallel downloads
              will split the load between the remotes. For example, if the files are available on
              remotes  A and B, then one file will be downloaded from A, and another file will be
              downloaded from B in parallel. (Remotes with lower costs are still  preferred  over
              higher cost remotes.)

       file matching options
              The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to get.

       --incomplete
              Resume  any incomplete downloads of files that were started and interrupted at some
              point previously. Useful to pick up where you left off ...  when  you  don't  quite
              remember where that was.

              These  incomplete  files  are the same ones that are listed as unused temp files by
              git-annex-unused(1).

              Note that the git-annex key will be displayed when downloading, as  git-annex  does
              not  know  the  associated  file,  and  the  associated file may not even be in the
              current git working directory.

       --all -A
              Rather than specifying a filename or path to get, this option can be  used  to  get
              all available versions of all files.

              This is the default behavior when running git-annex in a bare repository.

       --branch=ref
              Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.

       --unused
              Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.

       --failed
              Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.

              Not  to  be confused with --incomplete which resumes only downloads that managed to
              transfer part of the content of a file.

       --key=keyname
              Use this option to get a specified key.

       --batch
              Enables batch mode, in which lines containing names of files to get are  read  from
              stdin.

              As each specified file is processed, the usual progress output is displayed. If the
              specified file's content is  already  present,  or  it  does  not  match  specified
              matching  options, or it is not an annexed file, a blank line is output in response
              instead.

              Since the usual output while getting a file is verbose and  not  machine-parseable,
              you may want to use --json in combination with --batch.

       -z     Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.

       --json Enable  JSON  output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex.
              Each line of output is a JSON object.

       --json-progress
              Include progress objects in JSON output.

       --json-error-messages
              Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in  the  json
              instead.
