Pull a single file using git lfs

Andy Pont


I have a private git repo on our GitLab server that contains a bunch of source files that came as part of a commercial product and the final binary executable is also stored there using “git lfs”.

I’m trying to figure out how to create a bitbake recipe so that in the do_fetch() stage it just pulls the single binary file. I think the file can be got using “git lfs checkout path/to/file” but I’m not sure how to make it connect to the repo and not do a regular “git pull”.
