tig - text-mode interface for git SYNOPSIS
tig [options] [revisions] [--] [paths] tig show [options] [revisions] [--] [paths] tig blame [options] [rev] [--] path tig status tig < [git command output] DESCRIPTION
Browse changes in a git repository. Additionally, tig(1) can also act as a pager for output of various git commands. When browsing repositories, tig(1) uses the underlying git commands to present the user with various views, such as summarized commit log and showing the commit with the log message, diffstat, and the diff. Using tig(1) as a pager, it will display input from stdin and try to colorize it. OPTIONS
Command line options recognized by tig include all valid git-log(1) and git-diff(1) options, as well as the following subcommands and tig specific options. The first command line parameter not starting with "-" is interpreted as being either a revision specification or a path and will end the option parsing. All following options will be passed untouched to the underlying git command. show Open diff view using the given git-show(1) options. blame Show given file annotated by commits. Takes zero or more git-blame(1) options. Optionally limited from given revision. status Start up in status view. +<number> Show the first view with line <number> visible and selected. -v, --version Show version and exit. -h, --help Show help message and exit. EXAMPLES
Display the current branch: $ tig Display one or more specific branches: $ tig test master Display all branches: $ tig --all Display differences between two branches: $ tig test..master Display changes for a single file: $ tig -- README Display contents of the README file in a specific revision: $ tig show tig-0.8:README Display revisions between two dates for a specific file: $ tig --after="2004-01-01" --before="2006-05-16" -- README Blame file with copy detection enabled: $ tig blame -C README ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
In addition to environment variables used by git (e.g. GIT_DIR), tig defines the ones below. The command related environment variables have access to the internal state of tig via replacement variables, such as %(commit) and %(blob). See tigrc(5) for a full list. TIGRC_USER Path of the user configuration file (defaults to ~/.tigrc). TIGRC_SYSTEM Path of the system wide configuration file (defaults to {sysconfdir}/tigrc). TIG_LS_REMOTE Set command for retrieving all repository references. The command should output data in the same format as git-ls-remote(1). TIG_DIFF_OPTS The diff options to use in the diff view. The diff view uses git-show(1) for formatting and always passes --patch-with-stat, --find-copies-harder, and -C. TIG_TRACE Path for trace file where information about git commands are logged. FILES
~/.tigrc User configuration file. See tigrc(5) for examples. /etc/tigrc System wide configuration file. $GIT_DIR/config, '~/.gitconfig, '/etc/etc/gitconfig Git configuration files. Read on start-up with the help of git-config(1). BUGS
Bugs and feature requests can be reported using the issue tracker at or by mail to either the git mailing list or directly to the maintainer. Ensure that the word "tig" is in the subject. COPYRIGHT
