[jgit-dev] using the JGit library to get a list of all the files from a remote repository
with svn we can get a list of all the files in a remote repository without checking out the contents locally, with svn list <url>.
if i understood it correctly, the git client/protocol does not allow this possibility.
so, i would need to do as follows:
git clone <url>
git ls-tree -r --name-only remotes/origin/master
however, this means that I need to download all the files locally.
is it possible create a program that lists all the files, without downloading all the files?
or according to the git procotol, it is impossible to get such a list without downloading the content of all the files?
if it is possible, can this be done with the JGit library?
any help in this direction?
