Description

Given an already annex'ed archive, extract and add its files to the dataset, and reference the original archive as a custom special remote.

Examples

Add files from the archive 'big_tarball.tar.gz', but keep big_tarball.tar.gz in the index::

% datalad add-archive-content big_tarball.tar.gz

Add files from the archive 'tarball.tar.gz', and remove big_tarball.tar.gz from the index::

% datalad add-archive-content big_tarball.tar.gz --delete

Add files from the archive 's3.zip' but remove the leading directory::

% datalad add-archive-content s3.zip --strip-leading-dirs

Options

archive

archive file or a key (if --key specified). Constraints: value must be a string

-h,  --help,  --help-np

show this help message. --help-np forcefully disables the use of a pager for displaying the help message

-d DATASET, --dataset DATASET

"specify the dataset to save. Constraints: Value must be a Dataset or a valid identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path) or value must be NONE

--annex ANNEX

DEPRECATED. Use the 'dataset' parameter instead.

--add-archive-leading-dir

place extracted content under a directory which would correspond to the archive name with all suffixes stripped. E.g. the content of `archive.tar.gz` will be extracted under `archive/`.

--strip-leading-dirs

remove one or more leading directories from the archive layout on extraction.

--leading-dirs-depth LEADING_DIRS_DEPTH

maximum depth of leading directories to strip. If not specified (None), no limit.

--leading-dirs-consider LEADING_DIRS_CONSIDER

regular expression(s) for directories to consider to strip away. Constraints: value must be a string or value must be NONE

--use-current-dir

extract the archive under the current directory, not the directory where the archive is located. This parameter is applied automatically if --key was used.

-D,  --delete

delete original archive from the filesystem/Git in current tree. Note that it will be of no effect if --key is given.

--key

signal if provided archive is not actually a filename on its own but an annex key. The archive will be extracted in the current directory.

-e EXCLUDE, --exclude EXCLUDE

regular expressions for filenames which to exclude from being added to annex. Applied after --rename if that one is specified. For exact matching, use anchoring. Constraints: value must be a string or value must be NONE

-r RENAME, --rename RENAME

regular expressions to rename files before added them under to Git. The first defines how to split provided string into two parts: Python regular expression (with groups), and replacement string. Constraints: value must be a string or value must be NONE

--existing {fail, overwrite, archive-suffix, numeric-suffix}

what operation to perform if a file from an archive tries to overwrite an existing file with the same name. 'fail' (default) leads to an error result, 'overwrite' silently replaces existing file, 'archive-suffix' instructs to add a suffix (prefixed with a '-') matching archive name from which file gets extracted, and if that one is present as well, 'numeric-suffix' is in effect in addition, when incremental numeric suffix (prefixed with a '.') is added until no name collision is longer detected. [Default: 'fail']

-o ANNEX_OPTIONS, --annex-options ANNEX_OPTIONS

additional options to pass to git-annex. Constraints: value must be a string or value must be NONE

--copy

copy the content of the archive instead of moving.

--no-commit

don't commit upon completion.

--allow-dirty

flag that operating on a dirty repository (uncommitted or untracked content) is ok.

--stats STATS

ActivityStats instance for global tracking.

--drop-after

drop extracted files after adding to annex.

--delete-after

extract under a temporary directory, git-annex add, and delete afterwards. To be used to "index" files within annex without actually creating corresponding files under git. Note that `annex dropunused` would later remove that load.

--version

show the module and its version which provides the command
