Learning how to use git in general is out of the scope of our documentation. Here are some good resources:

We do have some general resources for learning how to use git the sr.ht way:

git.sr.ht manual

The following sections document various features of git.sr.ht.

Repository creation

Creating new repositories is done on the create page, which you can access from any page via the navigation on the top right. You can also create a new repository by pushing to one that does not yet exist, and clicking the link which is printed in the git push output to complete the creation process.

The name and description fields are used to describe your repository to the public. The visibility field will change how your repository is shown on the website. Public repositories are visible on your profile, to anonymous users, and on third-party search engines. Unlisted repositories are visible to anyone who has the link, but are not shown in your profile or in search results. Private repositories are only visible to you and other logged-in users who you explicitly grant access to.

Attaching files to releases

git.sr.ht allows you to attach files, such as executables (aka binaries), PGP signatures, and so on, to annotated tags. To create an annotated tag, run the following git command:

git tag -a <tag name>

For example, git tag -a 2.3.4 to tag version 2.3.4. Your text editor will open, and you'll be prompted to annotate the tag - fill this in with release notes, a changelog, etc. Consider using git-shortlog to generate your changelog.

Save and close your editor, then use git push --tags to publish the new tag or use git push --follow-tags to push any local commits to the current branch, along with the new tag (this can be made the default behavior by running git config --global push.followTags true). The new tag will appear on the refs page of your repository. To attach files to it, click the tag name (e.g. 2.3.4) and use the upload form on this page.

Source code annotations

You can generate annotations for your source code to display on git.sr.ht. For more information see this document.


Each repository's settings may be accessed via the settings link on the repository's detail page.


You can change the repository's visibility and description on this page. Click Rename? if you wish to rename your repository. Renaming your repository sets up a redirect from the previous name to the new.


The access page allows you to grant other users read or write access to your repository. Users with read access will be able to clone and view private repositories on the web, and users with write access will be able to push new to your repository. Users with write access will not be able to edit your repository's settings.


You can delete your repository from this page. This operation cannot be undone. This does not delete any other resources that may be associated with this project, such as a ticket tracker on todo.sr.ht or build history on builds.sr.ht.


Your public profile is available at git.sr.ht/~username. Here any public repositories on your account are listed and searchable, but unlisted and private repositories are hidden unless you're logged in.

The information displayed on your profile page is sourced from your meta.sr.ht profile.
