re-add [target...]

Re-add modified files in the target state, preserving any encrypted_ attributes. chezmoi will not overwrite templates, and all entries that are not files are ignored. Directories are recursed into by default.

If no targets are specified then all modified files are re-added. If one or more targets are given then only those targets are re-added.

-r, --recursive

Recursively add files in subdirectories.


If you want to re-add a single file unconditionally, use chezmoi add --force instead.


$ chezmoi re-add
$ chezmoi re-add ~/.bashrc
$ chezmoi re-add --recursive=false ~/.config/git
