hub buck init

Initializes a new or existing bucket.

A .textile config directory and a seed file will be created in the current working directory. Existing configs will not be overwritten.

Use the '--existing' flag to interactively select an existing remote bucket. Use the '--cid' flag to initialize from an existing UnixFS DAG. Use the '--unfreeze' flag to retrieve '--cid' from known or imported deals.

By default, if the remote bucket exists, remote objects are pulled and merged with local changes. Use the '--soft' flag to accept all local changes, including deletions. Use the '--hard' flag to discard all local changes.
