Custom Remote Repo Url
This plugin will first check to see if your repo is backed by GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab so nothing is required if your repo is hosted on one of these.
If its not, you can easily set a custom revision URL string like so:
- From the settings view go to settings for this package Git Blame
- Check the box for "Use Custom Url Template If Standard Remotes Fail"
- Set your url format string in the box labeled Custom Commit Url String
The URL string should contain the following three placeholder variables wrapped in underscore template delimiters like so:
<%- variable %>.
project- Will be replaced with the name of the project in your remote git repository. For this repo it would be
repo- Will be replaced with the name of the repository. For this repo it would be
revision- Will be replaced with the full git revision hash you clicked on.
I'll use github as an example. Its already supported out of the box, but if it wasn't its custom url string would be:
https://github.com/<%- project %>/<%- repo %>/commit/<%- revision %>
So when you clicked on hash revision 12345 in this git-blame repository, you would visit the following url:
You can also set a custom URL in your git config. If present, it will be used insted of the one in the package settings. You can add or change it with this command:
git config --local atom-git-blame.repositoryUrlTemplate "http://my_server/gitweb/?p=<%- repo %>.git;a=commit;h=<%- revision %>"
Or by edit your
.git/config and add an entry like this:
[atom-git-blame] repositoryUrlTemplate = "http://my_server/gitweb/?p=<%- repo %>.git;a=commit;h=<%- revision %>"
