Sublime Text plugin: GitCommitMsg

Shows the git commit history for one or more lines of code. Essentially it performs a git blame on the selected line(s) of code, and then performs a git show on the resulting commit(s).

Inspired by "Every line of code is always documented"

Usage

  • Supports Sublime Text 2 & Sublime Text 3
  • Mac: Default keybinding is Command+Shift+m
  • Linux/Windows: Default keybinding is Alt+Shift+m
  • Assumes git is installed and in the $PATH

Example

Install from Package Control

The easiest way to install this is with Package Control.

  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Control+Shift+p on Linux/Windows).
  • Select "Package Control: Install Package"
  • Select GitCommitMsg when the list appears.

Manual Install

Use this if for some reason you cannot use Package Control steps above and/or the plugin does not appear yet in Package Control. Thanks to https://github.com/kemayo/sublime-text-git/wiki for documenting these steps originally.

First, you need to have git installed and in your $PATH. Afterwards you may need to restart Sublime Text 2 before the plugin will work.
