NAME
----
	cgitrc - runtime configuration for cgit


DESCRIPTION
-----------
Cgitrc contains all runtime settings for cgit, including the list of git
repositories, formatted as a line-separated list of NAME=VALUE pairs. Blank
lines, and lines starting with '#', are ignored.


GLOBAL SETTINGS
---------------
agefile
	Specifies a path, relative to each repository path, which can be used
	to specify the date and time of the youngest commit in the repository.
	The first line in the file is used as input to the "parse_date"
	function in libgit. Recommended timestamp-format is "yyyy-mm-dd
	hh:mm:ss". Default value: "info/web/last-modified".

cache-root
	Path used to store the cgit cache entries. Default value:
	"/var/cache/cgit".

cache-dynamic-ttl
	Number which specifies the time-to-live, in minutes, for the cached
	version of repository pages accessed without a fixed SHA1. Default
	value: "5".

cache-repo-ttl
	Number which specifies the time-to-live, in minutes, for the cached
	version of the repository summary page. Default value: "5".

cache-root-ttl
	Number which specifies the time-to-live, in minutes, for the cached
	version of the repository index page. Default value: "5".

cache-size
	The maximum number of entries in the cgit cache. Default value: "0"
	(i.e. caching is disabled).

cache-static-ttl
	Number which specifies the time-to-live, in minutes, for the cached
	version of repository pages accessed with a fixed SHA1. Default value:
	"5".

clone-prefix
	Space-separated list of common prefixes which, when combined with a
	repository url, generates valid clone urls for the repository. This
	setting is only used if `repo.clone-url` is unspecified. Default value:
	none.

css
	Url which specifies the css document to include in all cgit pages.
	Default value: "/cgit.css".

enable-index-links
	Flag which, when set to "1", will make cgit generate extra links for
	each repo in the repository index (specifically, to the "summary",
	"commit" and "tree" pages). Default value: "0".

enable-log-filecount
	Flag which, when set to "1", will make cgit print the number of
	modified files for each commit on the repository log page. Default
	value: "0".

enable-log-linecount
	Flag which, when set to "1", will make cgit print the number of added
	and removed lines for each commit on the repository log page. Default
	value: "0".

favicon
	Url used as link to a shortcut icon for cgit. If specified, it is
	suggested to use the value "/favicon.ico" since certain browsers will
	ignore other values. Default value: none.

footer
	The content of the file specified with this option will be included
	verbatim at the bottom of all pages (i.e. it replaces the standard
	"generated by..." message. Default value: none.

include
	Name of a configfile to include before the rest of the current config-
	file is parsed. Default value: none.

index-header
	The content of the file specified with this option will be included
	verbatim above the repository index. This setting is deprecated, and
	will not be supported by cgit-1.0 (use root-readme instead). Default
	value: none.

index-info
	The content of the file specified with this option will be included
	verbatim below the heading on the repository index page. This setting
	is deprecated, and will not be supported by cgit-1.0 (use root-desc
	instead). Default value: none.

local-time
	Flag which, if set to "1", makes cgit print commit and tag times in the
	servers timezone. Default value: "0".

logo
	Url which specifies the source of an image which will be used as a logo
	on all cgit pages.

logo-link
	Url loaded when clicking on the cgit logo image. If unspecified the
	calculated url of the repository index page will be used. Default
	value: none.

max-commit-count
	Specifies the number of entries to list per page in "log" view. Default
	value: "50".

max-message-length
	Specifies the maximum number of commit message characters to display in
	"log" view. Default value: "80".

max-repo-count
	Specifies the number of entries to list per page on the	repository
	index page. Default value: "50".

max-repodesc-length
	Specifies the maximum number of repo description characters to display
	on the repository index page. Default value: "80".

module-link
	Text which will be used as the formatstring for a hyperlink when a
	submodule is printed in a directory listing. The arguments for the
	formatstring are the path and SHA1 of the submodule commit. Default
	value: "./?repo=%s&page=commit&id=%s"

nocache
	If set to the value "1" caching will be disabled. This settings is
	deprecated, and will not be honored starting with cgit-1.0. Default
	value: "0".

renamelimit
	Maximum number of files to consider when detecting renames. The value
	 "-1" uses the compiletime value in git (for further info, look at
	  `man git-diff`). Default value: "-1".

repo.group
	A value for the current repository group, which all repositories
	specified after this setting will inherit. Default value: none.

robots
	Text used as content for the "robots" meta-tag. Default value:
	"index, nofollow".

root-desc
	Text printed below the heading on the repository index page. Default
	value: "a fast webinterface for the git dscm".

	verbatim below the "about" link on the repository index page. Default
	value: none.

root-title
	Text printed as heading on the repository index page. Default value:
	"Git Repository Browser".

snapshots
	Text which specifies the default (and allowed) set of snapshot formats
	supported by cgit. The value is a space-separated list of zero or more
	of the following values:

		"tar.gz"	gzip-compressed tar-file
		"tar.bz2"	bzip-compressed tar-file
		"zip"		zip-file
	Default value: none.

summary-branches

	view. Default value: "10".

summary-log
	Specifies the number of log entries to display in the repository
	"summary" view. Default value: "10".

summary-tags
	Specifies the number of tags to display in the repository "summary"
	view. Default value: "10".

virtual-root
	Url which, if specified, will be used as root for all cgit links. It
	will also cause cgit to generate 'virtual urls', i.e. urls like
	'/cgit/tree/README' as opposed to '?r=cgit&p=tree&path=README'. Default
	value: none.
	NOTE: cgit has recently learned how to use PATH_INFO to achieve the
	same kind of virtual urls, so this option will probably be deprecated.

REPOSITORY SETTINGS
-------------------
repo.clone-url
	A list of space-separated urls which can be used to clone this repo.
	Default value: none.

repo.defbranch
	The name of the default branch for this repository. If no such branch
	exists in the repository, the first branch name (when sorted) is used
	as default instead. Default value: "master".

repo.desc
	The value to show as repository description. Default value: none.

repo.enable-log-filecount
	A flag which can be used to disable the global setting
	`enable-log-filecount'. Default value: none.

repo.enable-log-linecount
	A flag which can be used to disable the global setting
	`enable-log-linecount'. Default value: none.

repo.owner
	A value used to identify the owner of the repository. Default value:
	none.

repo.path
	An absolute path to the repository directory. For non-bare repositories
	this is the .git-directory. Default value: none.

	verbatim as the "About" page for this repo. Default value: none.

repo.snapshots
	A mask of allowed snapshot-formats for this repo, restricted by the
	"snapshots" global setting. Default value: <snapshots>.

repo.url
	The relative url used to access the repository. This must be the first
	setting specified for each repo. Default value: none.

BUGS
----
Comments currently cannot appear on the same line as a setting; the comment
will be included as part of the value. E.g. this line:

	robots=index  # allow indexing

will generate the following html element:

	<meta name='robots' content='index  # allow indexing'/>
