support for git-lfs and git-annex
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
it would be great, if the source-browser of git could support git-lfs and/or git-annex (large file storage) by redirecting to the real file in the lfs-folder resp. annex-folder.
I want to you trac (especially trac-wiki) in combination with git-lfs for storing educational resources. git would be in charge for distributing the files to all teachers / students; with tracwiki I would organize all the "meta-data" like informations on lectures etc. It is one of the key-aspects (for teachers) to work on the files (worksheets etc.) at the local computer, therefore a dvcs (with large file support) is desperately needed.
For the repo-browser one could also use gitblit, since it supports git-lfs (see https://github.com/gitblit/gitblit/issues/1025 and the fix https://github.com/gitblit/gitblit/commit/77c38a1865564a4ea4544bfb1f52bedf4326d481), but it would be more helpfull if trac would support git-lfs.
And apart from that: git-annex has an equivalent approach for storing large-files and is even more flexible as git-lfs. gitlab is supporting both git-lfs and git-annex, but the wiki-system of gitlab is too limited.
I've been searching for a wiki-system with a dvcs-repo-browser with large-file-support during the last months, the only one with a good wiki-system I could found was trac. It would be great, if you could add support for git-lfs and/or git-annex.
