GIT-ARCHIVE(1)                    Git Manual                    GIT-ARCHIVE(1)



NAME
       git-archive - Create an archive of files from a named tree

SYNOPSIS
       git archive [--format=<fmt>] [--list] [--prefix=<prefix>/] [<extra>]
                     [-o | --output=<file>] [--worktree-attributes]
                     [--remote=<repo> [--exec=<git-upload-archive>]] <tree-ish>
                     [<path>...]


DESCRIPTION
       Creates an archive of the specified format containing the tree structure for the named tree, and writes it out
       to the standard output. If <prefix> is specified it is prepended to the filenames in the archive.

       git archive behaves differently when given a tree ID versus when given a commit ID or tag ID. In the first case
       the current time is used as the modification time of each file in the archive. In the latter case the commit
       time as recorded in the referenced commit object is used instead. Additionally the commit ID is stored in a
       global extended pax header if the tar format is used; it can be extracted using git get-tar-commit-id. In ZIP
       files it is stored as a file comment.

OPTIONS
       --format=<fmt>
           Format of the resulting archive: tar or zip. If this option is not given, and the output file is specified,
           the format is inferred from the filename if possible (e.g. writing to "foo.zip" makes the output to be in
           the zip format). Otherwise the output format is tar.

       -l, --list
           Show all available formats.

       -v, --verbose
           Report progress to stderr.

       --prefix=<prefix>/
           Prepend <prefix>/ to each filename in the archive.

       -o <file>, --output=<file>
           Write the archive to <file> instead of stdout.

       --worktree-attributes
           Look for attributes in .gitattributes in working directory too.

       <extra>
           This can be any options that the archiver backend understands. See next section.

       --remote=<repo>
           Instead of making a tar archive from the local repository, retrieve a tar archive from a remote repository.

       --exec=<git-upload-archive>
           Used with --remote to specify the path to the git-upload-archive on the remote side.

       <tree-ish>
           The tree or commit to produce an archive for.

       <path>
           Without an optional path parameter, all files and subdirectories of the current working directory are
           included in the archive. If one or more paths are specified, only these are included.

BACKEND EXTRA OPTIONS
   zip
       -0
           Store the files instead of deflating them.

       -9
           Highest and slowest compression level. You can specify any number from 1 to 9 to adjust compression speed
           and ratio.

CONFIGURATION
       tar.umask
           This variable can be used to restrict the permission bits of tar archive entries. The default is 0002,
           which turns off the world write bit. The special value "user" indicates that the archiving user's umask
           will be used instead. See umask(2) for details. If --remote is used then only the configuration of the
           remote repository takes effect.

       tar.<format>.command
           This variable specifies a shell command through which the tar output generated by git archive should be
           piped. The command is executed using the shell with the generated tar file on its standard input, and
           should produce the final output on its standard output. Any compression-level options will be passed to the
           command (e.g., "-9"). An output file with the same extension as <format> will be use this format if no
           other format is given.

           The "tar.gz" and "tgz" formats are defined automatically and default to gzip -cn. You may override them
           with custom commands.

       tar.<format>.remote
           If true, enable <format> for use by remote clients via git-upload-archive(1). Defaults to false for
           user-defined formats, but true for the "tar.gz" and "tgz" formats.

ATTRIBUTES
       export-ignore
           Files and directories with the attribute export-ignore won't be added to archive files. See
           gitattributes(5) for details.

       export-subst
           If the attribute export-subst is set for a file then git will expand several placeholders when adding this
           file to an archive. See gitattributes(5) for details.

       Note that attributes are by default taken from the .gitattributes files in the tree that is being archived. If
       you want to tweak the way the output is generated after the fact (e.g. you committed without adding an
       appropriate export-ignore in its .gitattributes), adjust the checked out .gitattributes file as necessary and
       use --worktree-attributes option. Alternatively you can keep necessary attributes that should apply while
       archiving any tree in your $GIT_DIR/info/attributes file.

EXAMPLES
       git archive --format=tar --prefix=junk/ HEAD | (cd /var/tmp/ && tar xf -)
           Create a tar archive that contains the contents of the latest commit on the current branch, and extract it
           in the /var/tmp/junk directory.

       git archive --format=tar --prefix=git-1.4.0/ v1.4.0 | gzip >git-1.4.0.tar.gz
           Create a compressed tarball for v1.4.0 release.

       git archive --format=tar.gz --prefix=git-1.4.0/ v1.4.0 >git-1.4.0.tar.gz
           Same as above, but using the builtin tar.gz handling.

       git archive --prefix=git-1.4.0/ -o git-1.4.0.tar.gz v1.4.0
           Same as above, but the format is inferred from the output file.

       git archive --format=tar --prefix=git-1.4.0/ v1.4.0^{tree} | gzip >git-1.4.0.tar.gz
           Create a compressed tarball for v1.4.0 release, but without a global extended pax header.

       git archive --format=zip --prefix=git-docs/ HEAD:Documentation/ > git-1.4.0-docs.zip
           Put everything in the current head's Documentation/ directory into git-1.4.0-docs.zip, with the prefix
           git-docs/.

       git archive -o latest.zip HEAD
           Create a Zip archive that contains the contents of the latest commit on the current branch. Note that the
           output format is inferred by the extension of the output file.

       git config tar.tar.xz.command "xz -c"
           Configure a "tar.xz" format for making LZMA-compressed tarfiles. You can use it specifying --format=tar.xz,
           or by creating an output file like -o foo.tar.xz.
