NAME
----
git-instaweb - Instantly browse your working repository in gitweb
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'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{litdd}browse' helper
script along with the URL of the gitweb instance. See
linkgit:git-web{litdd}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.
