10 --------
11 [verse]
12 'git-repo-config' [type] name [value [value_regex]]
13 'git-repo-config' [type] --replace-all name [value [value_regex]]
14 'git-repo-config' [type] --get name [value_regex]
15 'git-repo-config' [type] --get-all name [value_regex]
16 'git-repo-config' [type] --unset name [value_regex]
17 'git-repo-config' [type] --unset-all name [value_regex]
18 'git-repo-config' -l | --list

20 DESCRIPTION
21 -----------
22 You can query/set/replace/unset options with this command. The name is
23 actually the section and the key separated by a dot, and the value will be
24 escaped.
25
26 If you want to set/unset an option which can occur on multiple
27 lines, a POSIX regexp `value_regex` needs to be given. Only the
28 existing values that match the regexp are updated or unset. If
29 you want to handle the lines that do *not* match the regex, just
30 prepend a single exclamation mark in front (see EXAMPLES).
31
32 The type specifier can be either '--int' or '--bool', which will make
33 'git-repo-config' ensure that the variable(s) are of the given type and
34 convert the value to the canonical form (simple decimal number for int,
35 a "true" or "false" string for bool). If no type specifier is passed,
36 no checks or transformations are performed on the value.
37
38 This command will fail if:
39
40 . The .git/config file is invalid,
41 . Can not write to .git/config,
42 . no section was provided,
43 . the section or key is invalid,
44 . you try to unset an option which does not exist, or
45 . you try to unset/set an option for which multiple lines match.
46
47
48 OPTIONS
49 -------
50
51 --replace-all::
52 Default behavior is to replace at most one line. This replaces
53 all lines matching the key (and optionally the value_regex).
54
55 --get::
56 Get the value for a given key (optionally filtered by a regex
57 matching the value).
58
59 --get-all::
60 Like get, but does not fail if the number of values for the key
61 is not exactly one.
62
63 --get-regexp::
64 Like --get-all, but interprets the name as a regular expression.
65
66 --unset::
67 Remove the line matching the key from .git/config.
68
69 --unset-all::
70 Remove all matching lines from .git/config.
71
72 -l, --list::
73 List all variables set in .git/config.
74

76 EXAMPLE
77 -------
78
79 Given a .git/config like this:
80
81 #
82 # This is the config file, and
83 # a '#' or ';' character indicates
84 # a comment
85 #
86
87 ; core variables
88 [core]
89 ; Don't trust file modes
90 filemode = false
91
92 ; Our diff algorithm
93 [diff]
94 external = "/usr/local/bin/gnu-diff -u"
95 renames = true
96
97 ; Proxy settings
98 [core]
99 gitproxy="ssh" for "ssh://kernel.org/"
100 gitproxy="proxy-command" for kernel.org
101 gitproxy="myprotocol-command" for "my://"
102 gitproxy=default-proxy ; for all the rest
103
104 you can set the filemode to true with
105
106 ------------
107 % git repo-config core.filemode true
108 ------------
109
110 The hypothetic proxy command entries actually have a postfix to discern
111 to what URL they apply. Here is how to change the entry for kernel.org
112 to "ssh".
113
114 ------------
115 % git repo-config core.gitproxy '"ssh" for kernel.org' 'for kernel.org$'
116 ------------
117
118 This makes sure that only the key/value pair for kernel.org is replaced.
119
120 To delete the entry for renames, do
121
122 ------------
123 % git repo-config --unset diff.renames
124 ------------
125
126 If you want to delete an entry for a multivar (like core.gitproxy above),
127 you have to provide a regex matching the value of exactly one line.
128
129 To query the value for a given key, do
130
131 ------------
132 % git repo-config --get core.filemode
133 ------------
134
135 or
136
137 ------------
138 % git repo-config core.filemode
139 ------------
140
141 or, to query a multivar:
142
143 ------------
144 % git repo-config --get core.gitproxy "for kernel.org$"
145 ------------
146
147 If you want to know all the values for a multivar, do:
148
149 ------------
150 % git repo-config --get-all core.gitproxy
151 ------------
152
153 If you like to live dangerous, you can replace *all* core.gitproxy by a
154 new one with
155
156 ------------
157 % git repo-config --replace-all core.gitproxy ssh
158 ------------
159
160 However, if you really only want to replace the line for the default proxy,
161 i.e. the one without a "for ..." postfix, do something like this:
162
163 ------------
164 % git repo-config core.gitproxy ssh '! for '
165 ------------
166
167 To actually match only values with an exclamation mark, you have to
168
169 ------------
170 % git repo-config section.key value '[!]'
171 ------------
