git-lfs-pull - Man Page

Download all Git LFS files for current ref & checkout

Synopsis

git lfs pull [options] [remote]

Description

Download Git LFS objects for the currently checked out ref, and update the working copy with the downloaded content if required.

This is equivalent to running the following 2 commands:

git lfs fetch [options] [remote] git lfs checkout

Options

-I paths --include=paths

Specify lfs.fetchinclude just for this invocation; see Include and Exclude

-X paths --exclude=paths

Specify lfs.fetchexclude just for this invocation; see Include and Exclude

Include and Exclude

You can configure Git LFS to only fetch objects to satisfy references in certain paths of the repo, and/or to exclude certain paths of the repo, to reduce the time you spend downloading things you do not use.

In your Git configuration or in a .lfsconfig file, you may set either or both of lfs.fetchinclude and lfs.fetchexclude to comma-separated lists of paths. If lfs.fetchinclude is defined, Git LFS objects will only be fetched if their path matches one in that list, and if lfs.fetchexclude is defined, Git LFS objects will only be fetched if their path does not match one in that list. Paths are matched using wildcard matching as per gitignore(5).

Note that using the command-line options -I and -X override the respective configuration settings. Setting either option to an empty string clears the value.

Default Remote

Without arguments, pull downloads from the default remote. The default remote is the same as for git pull, i.e. based on the remote branch you´re tracking first, or origin otherwise.
