NAME

       git-lfs - Work with large files in Git repositories

SYNOPSIS

       git lfs command [args]

DESCRIPTION

       Git  LFS  is  a  system  for managing and versioning large files in association with a Git
       repository. Instead of storing the large files within the Git repository as blobs, Git LFS
       stores  special  "pointer files" in the repository, while storing the actual file contents
       on a Git LFS server. The contents of the large  file  are  downloaded  automatically  when
       needed, for example when a Git branch containing the large file is checked out.

       Git  LFS  works by using a "smudge" filter to look up the large file contents based on the
       pointer file, and a "clean" filter to create a new version of the pointer  file  when  the
       large  fileĀ“s  contents  change.  It  also  uses  a pre-push hook to upload the large file
       contents to the Git LFS server whenever a commit containing a new large  file  version  is
       about to be pushed to the corresponding Git server.

COMMANDS

       Like  Git,  Git  LFS commands are separated into high level ("porcelain") commands and low
       level ("plumbing") commands.

EXAMPLES

       To get started with Git LFS, the following commands can be used.

       1.  Setup Git LFS on your system. You only  have  to  do  this  once  per  repository  per
           machine:

           git lfs install

       2.  Choose  the  type  of  files  you  want  to  track,  for examples all ISO images, with
           git-lfs-track(1):

           git lfs track "*.iso"

       3.  The above stores this information in gitattributes(5) files, so that file need  to  be
           added to the repository:

           git add .gitattributes

       4.  Commit, push and work with the files normally:

           git add file.iso
           git commit -m "Add disk image"
           git push
