Over the years we have been promoting Git LFS at git.embl.de.
With the move to an S3 backed storage, LFS is now the supported way to store large files in our platform.
New limit on git push
In order to enforce the use of LFS over plain git for large files, as of 2022-09-15 we now reject pushes larger than 100Mb.
Introducing git LFS
Git LFS is a solution to store large files in Git in a more efficient manner.
Git LFS is an extension to git and is not bundled in a regular installation. You will need to install it separately.
Please refer to Git LFS for download and installation instructions.
Once installed follow the instructions under the Getting started section.
If you have setup SSH-key based authentication, use of Git LFS with Bio-IT GitLab should not require any additional configuration.
If you encounter any problems, email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or message us over the EMBL chat on either the Bio-IT or Git channels.
