git-ls-remote - List references in a remote repository
'git ls-remote' [--heads] [--tags] [-u <exec> | --upload-pack <exec>]
[--exit-code] <repository> [<refs>...]
Displays references available in a remote repository along with the associated
commit IDs.
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
-u <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
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.
Expand the URL of the given remote repository taking into account any
"url.<base>.insteadOf" config setting (See linkgit:git-config[1]) and
exit without talking to the remote.
Location of the repository. The shorthand defined in
$GIT_DIR/branches/ can be used. Use "." (dot) to list references in
the local repository.
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.
