1. NAME

git-web--browse - git helper script to launch a web browser

2. SYNOPSIS



git web--browse [OPTIONS] URL/FILE ...

3. DESCRIPTION



This script tries, as much as possible, to display the URLs and FILEs that are passed as arguments, as HTML pages in new tabs on an already opened web browser.

The following browsers (or commands) are currently supported:


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . firefox (this is the default under X Window when not using KDE)


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . iceweasel


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . konqueror (this is the default under KDE, see Note about konqueror below)


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . w3m (this is the default outside graphical environments)


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . links


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . lynx


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . dillo


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . open (this is the default under Mac OS X GUI)


.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .

2.3 . start (this is the default under MinGW)

Custom commands may also be specified.

4. OPTIONS

-b BROWSER, --browser=BROWSER
Use the specified BROWSER. It must be in the list of supported browsers.

-t BROWSER, --tool=BROWSER
Same as above.

-c CONF.VAR, --config=CONF.VAR
CONF.VAR is looked up in the git config files. If it(cqs set, then its value specify the browser that should be used.

5. CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

5.1. CONF.VAR (from -c option) and web.browser



The web browser can be specified using a configuration variable passed with the -c (or --config) command line option, or the web
owser
configuration variable if the former is not used.

5.2. browser.<tool>.path



You can explicitly provide a full path to your preferred browser by setting the configuration variable browser.<tool>.path. For example, you can configure the absolute path to firefox by setting browser.firefox.path. Otherwise, git webbrowse assumes the tool is available in PATH.

5.3. browser.<tool>.cmd



When the browser, specified by options or configuration variables, is not among the supported ones, then the corresponding browser.<tool>.cmd configuration variable will be looked up. If this variable exists then git web--browse will treat the specified tool as a custom command and will use a shell eval to run the command with the URLs passed as arguments.

6. NOTE ABOUT KONQUEROR



When konqueror is specified by a command line option or a configuration variable, we launch kfmclient to try to open the HTML man page on an already opened konqueror in a new tab if possible.

For consistency, we also try such a trick if browser.konqueror.path is set to something like A_PATH_TO/konqueror. That means we will try to launch A_PATH_TO/kfmclient instead.

If you really want to use konqueror, then you can use something like the following:


.

 
Sélectionnez
       [web]
                browser = konq
        [browser "konq"]
                cmd = A_PATH_TO/konqueror

.

6.1. Note about git-config --global



Note that these configuration variables should probably be set using the --global flag, for example like this:


.

 
Sélectionnez
$ git config --global webowser firefox

.



as they are probably more user specific than repository specific. See git-config(1) for more information about this.
