The GitHub developers have updated the Git LFS extension. It replaces large files with text links, and their contents are stored on GitHub Enterprise servers. The new version fixes bugs and added new features to the old commands.
New migration options
git lfs migrate command received several new functions.
- Fixing the inability to save in the repository using Git LFS. If the file is larger than 100 MB, it does not move to GitHub and the history requires rewriting with the
git lfs migrate importcommand. If the file is less than 100 MB, the
git lfs migrate import --no-rewritecommand will move the file using the extension, fixing the changes in the repository.
- Correcting the error of storing files with the extension LFS. For example, you need to store images
* .pngwith LFS, and the file is added without using it.
git lfs migrate import --fixuphelps to fix the error. The
--fixupflag reads the condition in the
.gitattributesfile and automatically converts the objects for storage using Git LFS. In the example below, the
mona.pngfile is added without Git LFS:
$ cat .gitattributes *.png filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text $ git cat-file -p :mona.png | file -s /dev/stdin: PNG image data, 896 x 896, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
You can fix it this way:
$ git lfs migrate import --fixup migrate: Fetching remote refs: ..., done migrate: Sorting commits: ..., done migrate: Rewriting commits: 100% (2/2), done master 1002728154804338fe645976ad8b7258b0be0810 -> 076e2bfe114df5575b1130f694c18d1b26c86b86 migrate: Updating refs: ..., done migrate: checkout: ..., done $ git cat-file -p :mona.png version https://git-lfs.github.com/spec/v1 oid sha256:49afbfc61b10df78377f8f7dac774158e1a0197740e160ea3572d9839c61ac04 size 106277
mona.png is in the repository using the LFS repository.
To stop working with the expansion and export of large objects, it is enough to type
git lfs migrate export. The command accepts the same arguments as
git lfs migrate import, moving files from the extension.
Modified scripts and programs that can be used to design as "crutches." Now the testing software package outputs the results in TAP format and is started by the
prove command. And the assembly of the project can be done thanks to
Makefile, the familiar Git users.
In addition, the fixes and improvements to support for alternative objects, as well as the output of results from subdirectories by the
git lfs status command.
