The "branch" command:
Run various subcommands to manage branches of the open repository or of the repository identified by the -R or --repository option.
- fossil branch current
Print the name of the branch for the current check-out
- fossil branch info BRANCH-NAME
Print information about a branch
- fossil branch list|ls ?OPTIONS? ?GLOB?
List all branches. Options:
- List all branches. Default show only open branches
- List closed branches.
- Reverse the sort order
- Show recently changed branches first
The current branch is marked with an asterisk.
If GLOB is given, show only branches matching the pattern.
- fossil branch new BRANCH-NAME BASIS ?OPTIONS?
Create a new branch BRANCH-NAME off of check-in BASIS. Supported options for this subcommand include: --private branch is private (i.e., remains local) --bgcolor COLOR use COLOR instead of automatic background ("auto" lets Fossil choose it automatically, even for private branches) --nosign do not sign contents on this branch --date-override DATE DATE to use instead of 'now' --user-override USER USER to use instead of the current default
DATE may be "now" or "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSS". If in year-month-day form, it may be truncated, the "T" may be replaced by a space, and it may also name a timezone offset from UTC as "-HH:MM" (westward) or "+HH:MM" (eastward). Either no timezone suffix or "Z" means UTC.
Options valid for all subcommands:
- -R|--repository REPO
- Run commands on repository REPO
