NAME git-instaweb - Instantly browse your working repository in gitweb

SYNOPSIS git instaweb [--local] [--httpd=<httpd>] [--port=<port>] [--browser=<browser>] git instaweb [--start] [--stop] [--restart]

DESCRIPTION A simple script to set up gitweb and a web server for browsing the local repository.

OPTIONS -l, --local Only bind the web server to the local IP (127.0.0.1).

-d, --httpd The HTTP daemon command-line that will be executed. Command-line options may be specified here, and the configuration file will be added at the end of the command-line. Currently apache2, lighttpd, mongoose and webrick are supported. (Default: lighttpd)

-m, --module-path The module path (only needed if httpd is Apache). (Default: /usr/lib/apache2/modules)

-p, --port The port number to bind the httpd to. (Default: 1234)

-b, --browser The web browser that should be used to view the gitweb page. This will be passed to the git webbrowse helper script along with the URL of the gitweb instance. See git-web browse(1) for more information about this. If the script fails, the URL will be printed to stdout.

--start Start the httpd instance and exit. This does not generate any of the configuration files for spawning a new instance.

--stop Stop the httpd instance and exit. This does not generate any of the configuration files for spawning a new instance, nor does it close the browser.

--restart Restart the httpd instance and exit. This does not generate any of the configuration files for spawning a new instance.

CONFIGURATION You may specify configuration in your .git/config

[instaweb] local = true httpd = apache2 -f port = 4321 browser = konqueror modulepath = /usr/lib/apache2/modules

If the configuration variable instaweb.browser is not set, web.browser will be used instead if it is defined. See git-webrowse(1) for more information about this.
