NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

       --exit-code
           Exit with status "2" when no matching refs are found in the remote repository. Usually
           the command exits with status "0" to indicate it successfully talked with the remote
           repository, whether it found any matching refs.

       <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.
