hg bookmarks [OPTIONS]... [NAME]...

aliases: bookmark

track a line of development with movable markers

Bookmarks are pointers to certain commits that move when committing. Bookmarks are local. They can be renamed, copied and deleted. It is possible to use "hg merge NAME" to merge from a given bookmark, and "hg update NAME" to update to a given bookmark.

You can use "hg bookmark NAME" to set a bookmark on the working directory's parent revision with the given name. If you specify a revision using -r REV (where REV may be an existing bookmark), the bookmark is assigned to that revision.

Bookmarks can be pushed and pulled between repositories (see "hg help push" and "hg help pull"). This requires both the local and remote repositories to support bookmarks. For versions prior to 1.8, this means the bookmarks extension must be enabled.

If you set a bookmark called '@', new clones of the repository will have that revision checked out (and the bookmark made active) by default.

With -i/--inactive, the new bookmark will not be made the active bookmark. If -r/--rev is given, the new bookmark will not be made active even if -i/--inactive is not given. If no NAME is given, the current active bookmark will be marked inactive.


-f --force force
-r --rev REV revision
-d --delete delete a given bookmark
-m --rename NAME rename a given bookmark
-i --inactive mark a bookmark inactive
