What's a simple way to find the size of my Git repository?
And I don't mean
du -h on the root directory of my repository. I have a lot of ignored files, so that size would be different from my total repository size. I essentially want to know how much data would be transferred upon cloning my repository.
Note that, since git 1.8.3 (April, 22d 2013):
git count-objects" learned "
--human-readable" aka "
-H" option to show various large numbers in
GiB scaled as necessary.
That could be combined with the
-v option mentioned by Jack Morrison in his answer.
git count-objects -vH
git gc is important, as mentioned by A-B-B's answer)
Plus (still git 1.8.3), the output is more complete:
git count-objects -v" learned to report leftover temporary packfiles and other garbage in the object store.
