git-annex-status man page
git-annex-status — show the working tree status
git annex status [path ...]
Similar to git status --short, this command displays the status of the files in the working tree.
Show files that are not checked into git (?), deleted (D), modified (M), added but not committed (A), and type changed/unlocked (T).
Particularly useful in direct mode.
This option is passed on to git status, see its man page for details.
Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
