lab 46 Bare Repositories
- Learn how to create bare repositories.
Bare repositories (without working directories) are usually used for sharing.
Create a bare repository.
cd .. git clone --bare hello hello.git ls hello.git
NOTE: Now in the work directory
$ git clone --bare hello hello.git Cloning into bare repository 'hello.git'... done. $ ls hello.git HEAD config description hooks info objects packed-refs refs
The convention is that repositories ending in ‘.git’ are bare repositories. We can see that there is no working directory in the hello.git repo. Essentially it is nothing but the .git directory of a non-bare repo.
