You can specify git repositories in different ways, depending on the protocol you use.

File System

  • /path/to/repo.git
  • file:///path/to/repo.git

Git native protocol

  • git://example.com/path/to/repo.git
  • git://example.com/~user/path/to/repo.git

SSH connection

  • ssh://[user@]example.com[:port]/path/to/repo.git
  • ssh://[user@]example.com/path/to/repo.git
  • ssh://[user@]example.com/~user2/path/to/repo.git
  • ssh://[user@]example.com/~/path/to/repo.git

SSH (short form - no port support)

  • [user@]example.com:/path/to/repo.git
  • [user@]example.com:~user/path/to/repo.git
  • [user@]example.com:path/to/repo.git

HTTP and HTTPS URL variants

  • http://example.com/path/to/repo.git
  • https://example.com/path/to/repo.git

rsync protocol (highly discouraged)
