Migration tutorials

is there any tutorial how to migrate from git lfs to dvc?

I don’t think so but that would be great to have! In case you want to make one.

I can think of 2 strategies:

i. Brute-force approach:
Remove Git-LFS (or even Git itself) completely and start over with DVC.

ii. Conversion

  1. Translate the Git-LFS pointer files into .dvc files (empty hash values)
  2. Download all the data from the Git-LFS server into the workspace
  3. dvc commit and git remove/add/commit everything.
