tig(1)
======
NAME
----
tig - text-mode interface for git
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
tig [options] [revisions] [--] [paths]
tig show [options] [revisions] [--] [paths]
tig blame [options] [rev] [--] path
tig status
tig < [git command output]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Browse changes in a git repository. Additionally, tig(1) can also act
as a pager for output of various git commands.
When browsing repositories, tig(1) uses the underlying git commands
to present the user with various views, such as summarized commit log
and showing the commit with the log message, diffstat, and the diff.
Using tig(1) as a pager, it will display input from stdin and try
to colorize it.
OPTIONS
-------
Command line options recognized by tig include all valid git-log(1) and
git-diff(1) options, as well as the following subcommands and tig specific
options. The first command line parameter not starting with "-" is interpreted
as being either a revision specification or a path and will end the option
parsing. All following options will be passed untouched to the underlying git
command.
show::
Open diff view using the given git-show(1) options.
blame::
Show given file annotated by commits.
Takes zero or more git-blame(1) options.
Optionally limited from given revision.
status::
Start up in status view.
+<number>::
Show the first view with line <number> visible and selected.
-v, --version::
Show version and exit.
-h, --help::
Show help message and exit.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
---------------------
In addition to environment variables used by git (e.g. GIT_DIR), tig defines
the ones below. The command related environment variables have access to the
internal state of tig via replacement variables, such as `%(commit)` and
`%(blob)`. See manpage:tigrc[5] for a full list.
TIGRC_USER::
Path of the user configuration file (defaults to `~/.tigrc`).
TIGRC_SYSTEM::
Path of the system wide configuration file (defaults to
`{sysconfdir}/tigrc`).
TIG_LS_REMOTE::
Set command for retrieving all repository references. The command
should output data in the same format as git-ls-remote(1).
TIG_DIFF_OPTS::
The diff options to use in the diff view. The diff view uses
git-show(1) for formatting and always passes --patch-with-stat. You
may also set the diff-options setting in your manpage:tigrc[5].
TIG_TRACE::
Path for trace file where information about git commands are logged.
FILES
-----
'~/.tigrc'::

System wide configuration file.
