GIT-WRITE-TREE(1)                                Git Manual                                GIT-WRITE-TREE(1)

       git-write-tree - Create a tree object from the current index

       git write-tree [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]

       Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new tree object is printed to standard

       The index must be in a fully merged state.

       Conceptually, git write-tree sync()s the current index contents into a set of tree files. In order to
       have that match what is actually in your directory right now, you need to have done a git
       update-index phase before you did the git write-tree.

           Normally git write-tree ensures that the objects referenced by the directory exist in the object
           database. This option disables this check.

           Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory <prefix>. This can be used to write the tree
           object for a subproject that is in the named subdirectory.
