Useful Add-on to EGit

GitHub becoming the most popular Version of Git, we have a few features lined up to support GitHub

1.Raising PullRequest from Eclipse between 2 Remotes

  • Earlier Implemented as Gimmick which would open the URL in a Browser and you could click on Create PullRequest
  • Now the Feature is extended and implemented using GitHub Mylyn Connector, so that you can raise PullRequest from Eclipse itself in the true sense.

2.Fork Visualisation

  • Select a Branch in the Github Repositories View and See the Forks of the Selected Repo Graphically and Hierarchially.

3.Add Remote and Fetch from Fork

  • You can Select a Fork and decide to Add a Remote and Fetch that into your Local Git Repo in just 1 Click.
  • This feature helps in avoiding
    • Copy Pasting SSH or HTTPS URL from Github
    • Add Remote > Enter Remote Name > Add URI > Add ConfigSpec and finally Fetch.

4.Open in Browser

  • You can select any Resource / Branch / Commit in Package Explorer, Project Explorer or Repositories View and Click on Open in Browser and it would take you the Web Location of that git entity.

5.Fork Repositories

  • You can search for Repositories on Github and Fork them into your Account from withing Eclipse using Fork View.

6.Star and Unstar Repositories

  • You can Star and Unstart your Favourie Repositories from Fork Visualisation View.

Features to follow

  • Other GitHub Operations thru GUI.
