git-annex-addurl - add urls to annex


git annex addurl [url ...]


Downloads each url to its own file, which is added to the annex.

When quvi is installed, urls are automatically tested to see if they point to a video
hosting site, and the video is downloaded instead.

Urls to torrent files (including magnet links) will cause the content of the torrent to be
downloaded, using aria2c.

Normally the filename is based on the full url, so will look like
"www.example.com_dir_subdir_bigfile". In some cases, addurl is able to come up with a
better filename based on other information. Options can also be used to get better



Avoid immediately downloading the url. The url is still checked (via HEAD) to
verify that it exists, and to get its size if possible.

Avoid storing the size of the url's content, and accept whatever content is there
at a future point. (Implies --fast.)

--raw Prevent special handling of urls by quvi, bittorrent, and other special remotes.
This will for example, make addurl download the .torrent file and not the contents
it points to.

Use with a filename that does not yet exist to add a new file with the specified
name and the content downloaded from the url.

If the file already exists, addurl will record that it can be downloaded from the
specified url(s).

Rather than basing the filename on the whole url, this causes a path to be
constructed, starting at the specified depth within the path of the url.

For example, adding the url http://www.example.com/dir/subdir/bigfile with
--pathdepth=1 will use "dir/subdir/bigfile", while --pathdepth=3 will use

It can also be negative; --pathdepth=-2 will use the last two parts of the url.

--prefix=foo --suffix=bar
Use to adjust the filenames that are created by addurl. For example, --suffix=.mp3
can be used to add an extension to the file.

--jobs=N -JN
Enables parallel downloads when multiple urls are being added. For example: -J4
