tag Git clone verbose mode – show each incoming object
git ls-remote verbose (2)
It is not possible to list objects (files, commits, blobs, whatever) one-by-one, simply because git packs them in a single file for efficiency reasons. For the same reason, you will only see a hidden
.git folder while cloning, files will be created only if the full pack file has been downloaded.
If you are wondering, these pack files will be downloaded to
.git/objects/pack/ with a name like
tmp_pack_XXXXXX. (later on, it will be renamed to something like
pack-*.pack with a related
I’m wondering that
git clone --verbose is not very verbose. The output of executing the command is the following:
$ git clone --verbose <repo> remote: Counting objects: 184, done remote: Finding sources: 100% (184/184) remote: Total 184 (delta 66), reused 183 (delta 66) Receiving objects: 100% (184/184), 18.90 KiB, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (66/66), done.
The expected behaviour is to see the list of the received objects one by one. Is that possible using some other options?
I accept @Lekensteyn answer.
If you want to trace git remote commands,add following environmental variables into your terminal.This helps you to peek into what is running behind the scenes of a git command.
export GIT_TRACE_PACKET=1 export GIT_TRACE=1 export GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1
