display a git blob, reconstructing from mail if necessary

Synopsis

lei blob [Options] OID

Description

Display a git blob.  The blob may correspond to a message from the local store, any local external, or blobs associated with a project git repository (if run from a git (working) directory). For blobs which do not exist, it will attempt to recreate the blob using patch emails.

Options

--git-dir=DIR

Specify an additional .git/ directory to scan.  This option may be given multiple times.

Default: the output of git rev-parse --git-dir

--no-cwd

Do not look in the git repository of the current working directory.

--no-mail

Do not look in mail storage for OID.  This is implied by --oid-a, --path-a, and --path-b.

-A OID-A
--oid-a=OID-A

Provide pre-image object ID as a hint for reconstructing OID.

-a PATH-A
--path-a=PATH-A

Provide pre-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing OID.

-b PATH-B
--path-b=PATH-B

Provide post-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing OID.

-v
--verbose

Provide more feedback on stderr.

The following options are also supported and are described in lei-q(1).

--remote

Remote externals only get queried when the blob needs to be reconstructed from patch emails.

--no-local

--no-external

-I LOCATION, --include=LOCATION

--exclude=LOCATION

--only=LOCATION

--no-import-remote

--torsocks=auto|no|yes

--no-torsocks

--proxy=PROTO://HOST[:PORT]
