Syntax

  • git am [--signoff] [--keep] [--[no-]keep-cr] [--[no-]utf8] [--3way] [--interactive] [--committer-date-is-author-date] [--ignore-date] [--ignore-space-change | --ignore-whitespace] [--whitespace=<option>] [-C<n>] [-p<n>] [--directory=<dir>] [--exclude=<path>] [--include=<path>] [--reject] [-q | --quiet] [--[no-]scissors] [-S[<keyid>]] [--patch-format=<format>] [(<mbox> | <Maildir>)...]
  • git am (--continue | --skip | --abort)

Parameters

ParameterDetails
(<mbox>|<Maildir>)...The list of mailbox files to read patches from. If you do not supply this argument, the command reads from the standard input. If you supply directories, they will be treated as Maildirs.
-s, --signoffAdd a Signed-off-by: line to the commit message, using the committer identity of yourself.
-q, --quietBe quiet. Only print error messages.
-u, --utf8Pass -u flag to git mailinfo. The proposed commit log message taken from the e-mail is re-coded into UTF-8 encoding (configuration variable i18n.commitencoding can be used to specify project’s preferred encoding if it is not UTF-8). You can use --no-utf8 to override this.
--no-utf8Pass -n flag to git mailinfo.
-3, --3wayWhen the patch does not apply cleanly, fall back on 3-way merge if the patch records the identity of blobs it is supposed to apply to and we have those blobs available locally.
--ignore-date, --ignore-space-change, --ignore-whitespace, --whitespace=<option>, -C<n>, -p<n>, --directory=<dir>, --exclude=<path>, --include=<path>, --rejectThese flags are passed to the git apply program that applies the patch.
--patch-formatBy default the command will try to detect the patch format automatically. This option allows the user to bypass the automatic detection and specify the patch format that the patch(es) should be interpreted as. Valid formats are mbox, stgit, stgit-series, and hg.
-i, --interactiveRun interactively.
--committer-date-is-author-dateBy default the command records the date from the e-mail message as the commit author date, and uses the time of commit creation as the committer date. This allows the user to lie about the committer date by using the same value as the author date.
--ignore-dateBy default the command records the date from the e-mail message as the commit author date, and uses the time of commit creation as the committer date. This allows the user to lie about the author date by using the same value as the committer date.
--skipSkip the current patch. This is only meaningful when restarting an aborted patch.
-S[<keyid>], --gpg-sign[=<keyid>]GPG-sign commits.
--continue, -r, --resolvedAfter a patch failure (e.g. attempting to apply conflicting patch), the user has applied it by hand and the index file stores the result of the application. Make a commit using the authorship and commit log extracted from the e-mail message and the current index file, and continue.
--resolvemsg=<msg>When a patch failure occurs, <msg> will be printed to the screen before exiting. This overrides the standard message informing you to use --continue or --skip to handle the failure. This is solely for internal use between git rebase and git am.
--abortRestore the original branch and abort the patching operation.
