Latest commit 28fc513 Jun 6, 2016 @msohn msohn Improve error handling when using SecureStore
- if reading credentials fails remove the failing credentials from
secure store, otherwise the same error will occur again next time when
trying again to get the same credentials from a corrupted entry stored
in secure store
- improve error messages logged when a secure store operation fails
- add SecureStoreUtils.clearCredentials() to simplify error handling

Eclipse Git Plugin

EGit is an Eclipse plugin for working with Git repositories. It is based on the JGit library, which is a Git implementation in pure Java.

This package is licensed under the EPL. Please refer to the LICENSE file for the complete license.

This package is composed of the following major components:

  • org.eclipse.egit.core

    An Eclipse plugin providing an interface to org.eclipse.jgit and support routines to allow processing against the Eclipse workspace and resource APIs, rather than the standard Java file APIs. It also supplies the team provider implementation.

  • org.eclipse.egit.ui

    An Eclipse plugin providing the user interface on top of org.eclipse.egit.core.

  • org.eclipse.egit.core.test

    Unit tests for org.eclipse.egit.core.

  • org.eclipse.egit.ui.test

    UI tests for org.eclipse.egit.ui.

  • org.eclipse.egit

    A plugin for packaging

  • org.eclipse.egit-feature

    Also packaging. This project is for building an Eclipse "feature" out of the plugins above.

  • org.eclipse.egit.repository

    This package is for producing a p2 repository, i.e. a web site you can point your eclipse at and just upgrade.

There are other components which provide integration with other plugins.

Warnings/Caveats

  • Symbolic links are supported on Java 7 and higher and require that the optional JGit Java 7 feature is installed. For remaining issues with symbolic link support see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=429304.

  • CRLF conversion works for some things, but is in general still being worked on.

Compatibility

  • In general, EGit supports at least the latest two Eclipse releases. For details, please see https://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/FAQ

  • Newer version of EGit may implement new functionality, remove existing functions and change others without other notice than what is written in the commit log and source files themselves.

Package Features

The following list is not complete, but it gives an overview of the features:

  • org.eclipse.egit.core

    • Supplies an Eclipse team provider.

    • Connect/disconnect the provider to a project.

    • Search for the repositories associated with a project by autodetecting the Git repository directories.

    • Store which repositories are tied to which containers in the Eclipse workspace.

    • Tracks moves/renames/deletes and reflects them in the cache tree.

    • Resolves through linked containers.

  • org.eclipse.egit.ui

    • Connect team provider wizard panels.

    • Connect to Git team provider by making a new repository.

    • Connect to Git team provider by searching local filesystem for existing repository directories.

    • Team actions: track (add), untrack (remove), disconnect, show history, compare version.

    • Resource decorator shows file/directory state in the package explorer and other views.

    • Creating new commits or amending commits.

    • View for staging changes (whole files and partial staging), showing their differences and committing them.

    • Graphical history viewer with the ability to compare versions using eclipse built-in compare editor.

    • Clone, push, pull, fetch

    • Merge, rebase, cherry-pick

Missing Features

  • gitattributes support

    In particular CRLF conversion is not yet fully implemented.
