NAME

       git-ls-remote - List references in a remote repository

SYNOPSIS

       git ls-remote [--heads] [--tags]  [-u <exec> | --upload-pack <exec>]
                     <repository> <refs>...

DESCRIPTION

       Displays references available in a remote repository along with the
       associated commit IDs.

OPTIONS

       -h, --heads, -t, --tags
           Limit to only refs/heads and refs/tags, respectively. These options
           are not mutually exclusive; when given both, references stored in
           refs/heads and refs/tags are displayed.

       -u <exec>, --upload-pack=<exec>
           Specify the full path of git-upload-pack on the remote host. This
           allows listing references from repositories accessed via SSH and
           where the SSH daemon does not use the PATH configured by the user.

       <repository>
           Location of the repository. The shorthand defined in
           $GIT_DIR/branches/ can be used. Use "." (dot) to list references in
           the local repository.

       <refs>...
           When unspecified, all references, after filtering done with --heads
           and --tags, are shown. When <refs>... are specified, only
           references matching the given patterns are displayed.
