Make sure your gitconfig file is configured. You must configure at least the and variables.

Also, the package currently favors an ssh setup that doesn't expect to be prompted for credentials in order to push/pull, .etc. Github has a guide to help you set that up here

If you are on a Windows machine, I recommend checking out this thread if you have issues pushing/pulling from a remote repository with this package. I also don't have the means to do my own user testing in a windows environment so I won't be immediately able to help troubleshoot windows problems.

Showing the Git-Plus Palette

  • Cmd-Shift-H on MacOS
  • Ctrl-Shift-H on Windows + Linux
  • Git Plus: Menu on the atom command palette.

Push/Pull/Fetch notifications

Notifications will appear in a console output above the status bar. This view can be toggled by clicking the 'git+' icon in the bottom right of the status bar.



Commands are accessible for keybindings by dasherizing the command title.

Git Add == git-plus:add

Git Add All Commit And Push == git-plus:add-all-commit-and-push

Note: The following list of commands is not exhaustive. If what you want isn't a feature, you can use Git Run and enter the command.

Experimental Features

If you would like to use experimental features, enable them in the package settings.

  • Custom Commands

    If enabled, you can define your own commands in your atom or init.js file. These commands will appear in both the atom command palette as well as the Git-Plus command palette. Just like any other commands, you can define keybindings for them as well.

    Example command for undoing the last commit:

    # In
    atom.packages.onDidActivateInitialPackages (p) ->
    if gitPlus = atom.packages.getActivePackage('git-plus')?.mainModule.provideService()
      gitPlus.registerCommand 'atom-text-editor', 'custom-git-commands:undo-last-commit', ->
        gitPlus.getRepo() # If there are multiple repos in the project, you will be prompted to select which to use
        .then (repo) -> repo, 'reset HEAD~1'

    The name of the command in the Git-plus palette will be the undasherized version of what you provided -> 'Undo Last Commit'.

    Please beware of giving your commands the same name(undo-last-commit) as existing commands. They will appear as duplicates in the Git-plus palette.

  • Stage Files Beta > When enabled, the 'Unstage Files' and 'Stage Files' commands will be merged into one view where the staged status of multiple files can be toggled.
