The "branch" command:

Usage: fossil branch SUBCOMMAND ... ?OPTIONS?

Run various subcommands to manage branches of the open repository or of the repository identified by the -R or --repository option.

fossil branch close|reopen ?OPTIONS? BRANCH-NAME ?...BRANCH-NAMES?

Adds or cancels the "closed" tag to one or more branches. It accepts arbitrary unambiguous symbolic names but will only resolve checkin names and skips any which resolve to non-leaf checkins. Options:

-n|--dry-run
do not commit changes and dump artifact to stdout
-v|--verbose
output more information
--date-override DATE
DATE to use instead of 'now'
--user-override USER
USER to use instead of the current default

fossil branch current

Print the name of the branch for the current check-out

fossil branch hide|unhide ?OPTIONS? BRANCH-NAME ?...BRANCH-NAMES?

Adds or cancels the "hidden" tag for the specified branches or or checkin IDs. Accepts the same options as the close subcommand.

fossil branch info BRANCH-NAME

Print information about a branch

fossil branch list|ls ?OPTIONS? ?GLOB?

List all branches. Options:

-a|--all
List all branches. Default show only open branches
-c|--closed
List closed branches.
-p
List only private branches.
-r
Reverse the sort order
-t
Show recently changed branches first

The current branch is marked with an asterisk. Private branches are marked with a hash sign.

If GLOB is given, show only branches matching the pattern.

fossil branch new BRANCH-NAME BASIS ?OPTIONS?

Create a new branch BRANCH-NAME off of check-in BASIS. Supported options for this subcommand include:

--private
branch is private (i.e., remains local)
--bgcolor COLOR
use COLOR instead of automatic background ("auto" lets Fossil choose it automatically, even for private branches)
--nosign
do not sign contents on this branch
--date-override DATE
DATE to use instead of 'now'
--user-override USER
USER to use instead of the current default

DATE may be "now" or "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSS". If in year-month-day form, it may be truncated, the "T" may be replaced by a space, and it may also name a timezone offset from UTC as "-HH:MM" (westward) or "+HH:MM" (eastward). Either no timezone suffix or "Z" means UTC.

Options valid for all subcommands:

-R|--repository REPO
Run commands on repository REPO
