Hello all, is there a way to use Git LFS (https://git-lfs.github.com/) on Webfaction?

I ask because i have a Git repo hosted on Gitlab that i work on and then push to Webfaction for deployment. The repo is getting big and Gitlab is complaining. So i want to reduce the repo's size by using Git LFS for the repo's large files. Gitlab can handle Git LFS, but can Webfaction? I don't see any Webfaction docs on the matter.

If Webfaction can't use Git LFS, then what alternative do you suggest?

Thanks for your attention.

I'm surprised this was never answered. Now over 2 years old. Has no-one installed Git-LFS on Webfaction?

Apologies for missing this!

You should be able to use the git lfs command on our servers.

$ git lfs version git-lfs/2.4.2 (GitHub; linux amd64; go 1.10.2; git 6f4b2e98)
