Git LFS support for Apps?

Deploying a static site directly from Gitlab works well and seems pretty straight forward, but unfortunately it does not seem to pull down any files versioned via large file storage (LFS).

I see that it supports build commands, is there a simple way to ensure it pulls down anything from LFS in addition to a normal git checkout?

Heya @evankaufman,

I don’t think this is something that is available as a feature as of now. Additionally, I can see it’s been confirmed it’s on the RoadMap for now so, I’ll try to provide an update in this topic once we have it as a feature.


Not as of now, but we have it on our roadmap

Cheers, Sri Charan
