Git Flow Integration for Intellij

An intelliJ plugin providing a UI layer for git-flow, which in itself is a collection of Git extensions to provide high-level repository operations for Vincent Driessen's branching model.


Getting started

For the best introduction to get started with git flow, please read Jeff Kreeftmeijer's blog post:

Or have a look at this cheat sheet by Daniel Kummer:

Who and why

This plugin was created by Opher Vishnia, after I couldn't find any similar implementation. I saw this suggestion page on the JetBrains site has more than 220 likes and 80 comments, and decided to take up the gauntlet :)

Huge shoutout to Kirill Likhodedov, who wrote much of the original git4idea plugin, without which this plugin could not exist


The plugin is available via the IntelliJ plugin manager. Just search for "Git Flow Integration" to get the latest version!

(The plugin requires that you have gitflow installed. I highly recommend using the AVH edition, rather than Vanilla Git Flow since the original isn't being maintained anymore)

Mac/Linux users:

If you're running into issues like getting Gitflow is not installed or git: 'flow' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.

Please be sure to check out this thread


While the plugin is operational and contains all basic functions (init/feature/release/hotfix), it may contains bugs. With your help I'll be able to find and zap them all.

Helping out

This project is under active development. If you encounter any bug or an issue, I encourage you to add the them to the Issues list on Github. Feedback and suggestions are also very welcome.

I have worked hard on this plugin on my spare time. If you feel it is useful to you, please consider buying me a beer. I code better drunk.
