The ccollab addgitdiffs command uploads differences between arbitrary versions of files in Git. The differences are generated using the native git diff command of Git.

Command Line Syntax

ccollab [global-options] addgitdiffs [--upload-comment <value>] <review> [<git-diff-arg> [<git-diff-arg> ...]]

Command Options




--upload-comment <value>


Comment used to upload files (defaults to command-line arguments)



Identifier of the desired review (an integer number), or a new, ask, or last keyword. Where keywords define the following behaviour:

  • new - the command will create a new review,
  • ask - the command will pause execution and prompt for the identifier of the desired review,
  • last - the command will use the last review that was created on the current machine via Command-Line Client (that is, it does not know about reviews created elsewhere).

<git-diff-arg> [<git-diff-arg> ...]


Options which should be passed to the git diff command


Do not use diff arguments that affect the diff output such as -U unified. The Collaborator command-line client will automatically select an output format that ensures you will get all the data you need on the server.


To upload all changes between the revision 8 revisions ago and the revision 4 revisions ago:
