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.
