       datalad export-to-figshare - export the content of a dataset as a ZIP archive to figshare


       datalad  export-to-figshare  [-h] [-d DATASET] [--missing-content {error|continue|ignore}]
              [--no-annex] [--article-id ID] [--version] [PATH]


       Very quick and dirty approach.  Ideally figshare should be supported as a proper git annex
       special  remote.   Unfortunately,  figshare  does  not support having directories, and can
       store only a flat list of files.  That makes it impossible for any sensible publishing  of
       complete datasets.

       The  only  workaround  is  to  publish  dataset as a zip-ball, where the entire content is
       wrapped into a .zip archive for which figshare would provide a navigator.


       PATH   File name of the generated ZIP archive. If no file name is given the  archive  will
              be   generated   in   the   top  directory  of  the  dataset  and  will  be  named:
              datalad_<dataset_uuid>.zip. Constraints: value must be a string or  value  must  be

       -h, --help, --help-np
              show  this  help  message.  --help-np  forcefully  disables  the use of a pager for
              displaying the help message

       -d DATASET, --dataset DATASET
              "specify the dataset to export. If no dataset is  given,  an  attempt  is  made  to
              identify  the  dataset  based  on the current working directory. Constraints: Value
              must be a Dataset or a valid identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path) or value must be

       --missing-content {error|continue|ignore}
              By  default,  any  discovered file with missing content will result in an error and
              the plugin is aborted. Setting this to 'continue' will issue  warnings  instead  of
              failing  on error. The value 'ignore' will only inform about problem at the 'debug'
              log level. The latter two can be helpful when  generating  a  TAR  archive  from  a
              dataset  where  some file content is not available locally. Constraints: value must
              be one of ('error', 'continue', 'ignore') [Default: 'error']

              By default the generated .zip file would be added to annex, and all files would get
              registered  in  git-annex  to be available from such a tarball. Also upon upload we
              will register for that archive to be a possible source for  it  in  annex.  Setting
              this flag disables this behavior.

       --article-id ID
              Which  article  to publish to. Constraints: value must be convertible to type 'int'
              or value must be NONE
