geogig-cat documentation


geogig cat <reference>


Displays a machine-readable, non-formatted description of the passed reference. The reference can be a feature, a tree, or a commit. In the case of a tree, the default feature type is described along with some other characteristics of the tree. Identical to geogig show --raw.

To get a human-readable description of an element in a geogig repository, the show command can be used instead.

The reference can be a SHA-1, a full refspec, or just a path. If a path is used, it’s assumed to refer to an element in the working head.


--binary Shows binary output instead.


Discussion is still open.
