GIT-INSTAWEB(1)			  Git Manual		       GIT-INSTAWEB(1)

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, plackup 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 web--browse 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
	   Start the httpd instance and	exit. Regenerate configuration files
	   as necessary	for spawning a new instance.

       stop, --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
	   Restart the httpd instance and exit.	Regenerate configuration files
	   as necessary	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-web--browse(1) for more
       information about this.
