git-annex-add(1)	    General Commands Manual	      git-annex-add(1)

NAME
       git-annex-add - adds files to the git annex

SYNOPSIS
       git annex add [path ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Adds  the  specified  files  to the annex. If a directory is specified,
       acts on all files inside	the directory and its subdirectories.	If  no
       path is specified, adds files from the current directory	and below.

       Files that are already checked into git and are unmodified, or that git
       has been	configured to ignore will be silently skipped.

       If annex.largefiles is configured, and does not match a file, git annex
       add will	behave the same	as git add and add the non-large file directly
       to the git repository, instead of to the	annex.	(By  default  dotfiles
       are  assumed  to	 not  be large,	and are	added directly to git, but an-
       nex.dotfiles can	be configured to annex those too.)

       Large files are added to	the annex in locked form, which	prevents  fur-
       ther  modification  of  their  content unless unlocked by git-annex-un-
       lock(1).	 (This is not the case however	when  a	 repository  is	 in  a
       filesystem not supporting symlinks.)

       This  command  can also be used to add symbolic links, both symlinks to
       annexed content,	and other symlinks.

EXAMPLES
	# git annex add	foo bar
	add foo	ok
	add bar	ok
	# git commit -m	added

OPTIONS
       --force

	      Add gitignored files.

       --force-large
	      Treat all	files as large files,  ignoring	 annex.largefiles  and
	      annex.dotfiles configuration, and	add to the annex.

       --force-small
	      Treat  all  files	 as small files, ignoring annex.largefiles and
	      annex.dotfiles configuration, and	add to git, also ignoring  an-
	      nex.addsmallfiles	configuration.

       --backend
	      Specifies	which key-value	backend	to use.

       file matching options
	      Many of the git-annex-matching-options(1)	can be used to specify
	      files to add.

	      For example: --largerthan=1GB

       --jobs=N	-JN
	      Adds multiple files in parallel. This may	be faster.  For	 exam-
	      ple: -J4

	      Setting this to "cpus" will run one job per CPU core.

       --update	-u
	      Like  git	add --update, this does	not add	new files, but any up-
	      dates to tracked files will be added to the index.

       --json Enable JSON output. This is intended to be  parsed  by  programs
	      that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON	object.

       --json-progress
	      Include progress objects in JSON output.

       --json-error-messages
	      Messages that would normally be output to	standard error are in-
	      cluded in	the json instead.

       --batch
	      Enables batch mode, in which a file to add is  read  in  a  line
	      from stdin, the file is added, and repeat.

	      Note  that if a file is skipped (due to not existing, being git-
	      ignored, already being in	git, or	doesn't	meet the matching  op-
	      tions),  an empty	line will be output instead of the normal out-
	      put produced when	adding a file.

       -z     Makes the	--batch	input be delimited by  nulls  instead  of  the
	      usual newlines.
