NAME git-ls-remote - List references in a remote repository

SYNOPSIS git ls-remote [--heads] [--tags] [-u <exec> | --upload-pack <exec>] <repository> <refs>...

DESCRIPTION Displays references available in a remote repository along with the associated commit IDs.

OPTIONS -h, --heads, -t, --tags Limit to only refs/heads and refs/tags, respectively. These options are not mutually exclusive; when given both, references stored in refs/heads and refs/tags are displayed.

-u <exec>, --upload-pack=<exec> Specify the full path of git-upload-pack on the remote host. This allows listing references from repositories accessed via SSH and where the SSH daemon does not use the PATH configured by the user.

<repository> Location of the repository. The shorthand defined in $GIT_DIR/branches/ can be used. Use "." (dot) to list references in the local repository.

<refs>... When unspecified, all references, after filtering done with --heads and --tags, are shown. When <refs>... are specified, only references matching the given patterns are displayed.
