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 setup 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, lighttpd and apache2 are the only supported servers. (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 command-line to execute to view the gitweb page. If blank, the URL of the gitweb instance will be printed to stdout. (Default: firefox)

--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
