NAME

       git-instaweb - Instantly browse your working repository in gitweb

SYNOPSIS

       git instaweb [--local] [--httpd=<httpd>] [--port=<port>]
                      [--browser=<browser>]
       git instaweb [--start] [--stop] [--restart]

DESCRIPTION

       A simple script to set up gitweb and a web server for browsing the
       local repository.

OPTIONS

       -l, --local
           Only bind the web server to the local IP (127.0.0.1).

       -d, --httpd
           The HTTP daemon command-line that will be executed. Command-line
           options may be specified here, and the configuration file will be
           added at the end of the command-line. Currently apache2, lighttpd,
           mongoose, plackup and webrick are supported. (Default: lighttpd)

       -m, --module-path
           The module path (only needed if httpd is Apache). (Default:
           /usr/lib/apache2/modules)

       -p, --port
           The port number to bind the httpd to. (Default: 1234)

       -b, --browser
           The web browser that should be used to view the gitweb page. This
           will be passed to the git web--browse helper script along with the
           URL of the gitweb instance. See git-web--browse(1) for more
           information about this. If the script fails, the URL will be
           printed to stdout.

       start, --start
           Start the httpd instance and exit. Regenerate configuration files
           as necessary for spawning a new instance.

       stop, --stop
           Stop the httpd instance and exit. This does not generate any of the
           configuration files for spawning a new instance, nor does it close
           the browser.

       restart, --restart
           Restart the httpd instance and exit. Regenerate configuration files
           as necessary for spawning a new instance.

CONFIGURATION

       You may specify configuration in your .git/config

           [instaweb]
                   local = true
                   httpd = apache2 -f
                   port = 4321
                   browser = konqueror
                   modulepath = /usr/lib/apache2/modules

       If the configuration variable instaweb.browser is not set, web.browser
       will be used instead if it is defined. See git-web--browse(1) for more
       information about this.
