git-lfs-pointer ā€” Build, compare, and check pointers

Synopsis

git lfs pointer --file=path/to/file
git lfs pointer --file=path/to/file --pointer=path/to/pointer
git lfs pointer --file=path/to/file --stdin git lfs pointer --check --file=path/to/file

Description

Builds and optionally compares generated pointer files to ensure consistency between different Git LFS implementations.

Options

--file

A local file to build the pointer from.

--pointer

A local file including the contents of a pointer generated from another implementation. This is compared to the pointer generated from --file.

--stdin

Reads the pointer from STDIN to compare with the pointer generated from --file.

--check

Reads the pointer from STDIN (if --stdin is given) or the filepath (if --file) is given. If neither or both of --stdin and --file are given, the invocation is invalid. Exits 0 if the data read is a valid Git LFS pointer. Exits 1 otherwise.
