       tig - text-mode interface for git


       tig        [options] [revisions] [--] [paths]
       tig show   [options] [revisions] [--] [paths]
       tig blame  [rev] path
       tig status
       tig <      [git command output]


       Browse changes in a git repository. Additionally, tig(1) can also act
       as a pager for output of various git commands.

       When browsing repositories, tig(1) uses the underlying git commands to
       present the user with various views, such as summarized commit log and
       showing the commit with the log message, diffstat, and the diff.

       Using tig(1) as a pager, it will display input from stdin and try to
       colorize it.


       Command line options recognized by tig include all valid git-log(1) and
       git-diff(1) options, as well as the following subcommands and tig
       specific options. The first command line parameter not starting with
       "-" is interpreted as being either a revision specification or a path
       and will end the option parsing. All following options will be passed
       untouched to the underlying git command.

           Open diff view using the given git show options.

           Show given file annotated or blamed by commits. Optionally limited
           from given revision.

           Start up in status view.

       -v, --version
           Show version and exit.

       -h, --help
           Show help message and exit.


       Display the current branch:

           $ tig

       Display one or more specific branches:

           $ tig test master

       Display all branches:

           $ tig --all

       Display differences between two branches:

           $ tig test..master

       Display changes for a single file:

           $ tig -- README

       Display contents of the README file in a specific revision:

           $ tig show tig-0.8:README

       Display revisions between two dates for a specific file:

           $ tig --after="2004-01-01" --before="2006-05-16" -- README


       In addition to environment variables used by git (e.g. GIT_DIR), tig
       defines the ones below. The command related environment variables have
       access to the internal state of tig via replacement variables, such as
       %(commit) and %(blob). See manpage:tigrc[5] for a full list.

           Path of the user configuration file (defaults to ~/.tigrc).

           Path of the system wide configuration file (defaults to

           Set command for retrieving all repository references. The command
           should output data in the same format as git-ls-remote(1).

           The diff options to use in the diff view. The diff view uses
           git-show(1) for formatting and always passes --patch-with-stat,
           --find-copies-harder, and -C.


           User configuration file. See manpage:tigrc[5] for examples.

           System wide configuration file.

       ·   Proper locale support: in it’s current state tig is pretty much
           UTF-8 only.
