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. --get-url Expand the URL of the given remote repository taking into account any "url.<base>.insteadOf" config setting (See git-config(1)) and exit without talking to the remote. <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.
