grok-manifest [opts] -m manifest.js[.gz] -t /path [/path/to/bare.git]
Call grok-manifest from a git post-update or post-receive hook to create
the latest repository manifest. This manifest file is downloaded by
mirror slaves (if newer than what they already have) and used to only
clone/pull the repositories that have changed since the mirror's last run.
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-m MANIFILE, --manifest=MANIFILE
Location of manifest.js or manifest.js.gz
-t TOPLEVEL, --toplevel=TOPLEVEL
Top dir where all repositories reside
-l LOGFILE, --logfile=LOGFILE
When specified, will put debug logs in this location
-c, --check-export-ok
Honor the git-daemon-export-ok magic file and
do not export repositories not marked as such
-n, --use-now Use current timestamp instead of parsing commits
-p, --purge Purge deleted git repositories from manifest
-x, --remove Remove repositories passed as arguments from
the manifest file
-y, --pretty Pretty-print the generated manifest (sort repos
and add indentation). This is much slower, so
should be used with caution on large
-w, --wait-for-manifest
When running with arguments, wait if manifest is not
there (can be useful when multiple writers are writing
to the manifest file via NFS)
-i IGNORE, --ignore-paths=IGNORE
When finding git dirs, ignore these paths (can be used
multiple times, accepts shell-style globbing)
-v, --verbose Be verbose and tell us what you are doing
The examples assume that the repositories are located in /repos. If your
repositories are in ``/var/lib/git``, adjust both ``-m`` and ``-t``
flags accordingly.
Initial manifest generation::
/usr/bin/grok-manifest -m /repos/manifest.js.gz -t /repos
Inside the git hook::
/usr/bin/grok-manifest -m /repos/manifest.js.gz -t /repos -n `pwd`
To purge deleted repositories, use the ``-p`` flag when running from
/usr/bin/grok-manifest -m /repos/manifest.js.gz -t /repos -p
You can also add it to the gitolite's D command using the ``-x`` flag::
/usr/bin/grok-manifest -m /repos/manifest.js.gz -t /repos -x $repo.git
To troubleshoot potential problems, you can pass ``-l`` parameter to
grok-manifest, just make sure the user executing the hook command (user
git or gitolite, for example) is able to write to that location::
/usr/bin/grok-manifest -m /repos/manifest.js.gz -t /repos \
-l /var/log/git/grok-manifest-hook.log -n `pwd`
