lab 46 Bare Repositories

Goals

Bare repositories (without working directories) are usually used for sharing.

Create a bare repository. 01

Execute:

cd ..
git clone --bare hello hello.git
ls hello.git

NOTE: Now in the work directory

Output:

$ git clone --bare hello hello.git
Cloning into bare repository 'hello.git'...
warning: templates not found /Users/tonywok/.git_template
done.
$ ls hello.git
HEAD
config
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.
