GIT-LS-REMOTE(1)                  Git Manual                  GIT-LS-REMOTE(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
       git ls-remote [--heads] [--tags] [--refs] [--upload-pack=<exec>]
                     [-q | --quiet] [--exit-code] [--get-url]
                     [--symref] [<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.

       --refs
           Do not show peeled tags or pseudorefs like HEAD in the output.

       -q, --quiet
           Do not print remote URL to stderr.

       --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.

       --exit-code
           Exit with status "2" when no matching refs are found in the remote
           repository. Usually the command exits with status "0" to indicate
           it successfully talked with the remote repository, whether it found
           any matching refs.

       --get-url
           Expand the URL of the given remote repository taking into account
           any "url.<base>.insteadOf" config setting (See git-config(1)) and
           exit without talking to the remote.

       --symref
           In addition to the object pointed by it, show the underlying ref
           pointed by it when showing a symbolic ref. Currently, upload-pack
           only shows the symref HEAD, so it will be the only one shown by
           ls-remote.

       <repository>
           The "remote" repository to query. This parameter can be either a
           URL or the name of a remote (see the GIT URLS and REMOTES sections
           of git-fetch(1)).

       <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.

EXAMPLES
           $ git ls-remote --tags ./.
