It's Magit! A Emacs mode for Git.
I started to write Magit to learn about Git and to figure out how I
would be using Git in a 'natural' way. Magit will grow and hopefully
become more coherent as I learn more about Git and good ways to use
it. Feedback is welcome!
* Installing
Magit can be installed with the popular recipe of
$ ./ # If you got the sources directly from Git
$ ./configure
$ make install
This will put magit.el into /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp, where
Emacs should be able to find it. Then add
(require 'magit)
to your .emacs file.
* Getting started
To get started with Magit, open any file in a Git repository in Emacs
and run 'M-x magit-status'. Read the online help of magit-mode ('C-h
m' in the Magit buffer), make some changes to your files, and try to
commit them.
* Learning more
The Magit User Manual describes things with more words than the online
help. You can read it in Emacs with 'C-u C-h i' for
example, or on the web at
