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
