       datalad export-archive - export the content of a dataset as a TAR/ZIP archive.


       datalad  export-archive  [-h]  [-d  DATASET]  [-t  {tar|zip}]  [-c  {gz|bz2|}] [--missing-
              content {error|continue|ignore}] [PATH]


       PATH   File name of the generated TAR archive. If no file name is given the  archive  will
              be    generated    in    the    current    directory    and    will    be    named:
              datalad_<dataset_uuid>.(tar.*|zip). To generate that file in a different directory,
              provide an existing directory as the file name. Constraints: value must be a string

       -h, -\-help, -\-help-np
              show  this  help  message.  --help-np  forcefully  disables  the use of a pager for
              displaying the help message

       -d DATASET, -\-dataset DATASET
              "specify the dataset to export. If no dataset is  given,  an  attempt  is  made  to
              identify  the  dataset  based  on the current working directory. Constraints: Value
              must be a Dataset or a valid identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path)

       -t {tar|zip}, -\-archivetype {tar|zip}
              Type of archive to generate. Constraints: value  must  be  one  of  ('tar',  'zip')
              [Default: 'tar']

       -c {gz|bz2|}, -\-compression {gz|bz2|}
              Compression  method to use. 'bz2' is not supported for ZIP archives. No compression
              is used when an empty string is given. Constraints: value must  be  one  of  ('gz',
              'bz2', '') [Default: 'gz']

       -\-missing-content {error|continue|ignore}
              By  default,  any  discovered file with missing content will result in an error and
              the export is aborted. Setting this to 'continue' will issue  warnings  instead  of
              failing  on error. The value 'ignore' will only inform about problem at the 'debug'
              log level. The latter two can be helpful when  generating  a  TAR  archive  from  a
              dataset  where  some file content is not available locally. Constraints: value must
              be one of ('error', 'continue', 'ignore') [Default: 'error']
