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 not yet supported because they used to be unsupported by Java. Such links could be damaged.

  • Don't try the plugin with a JDK other than 1.6 (Java 6) unless you are prepared to investigate problems yourself. JDK 1.5.0_11 and later Java 5 versions may work. Earlier versions do not. JDK 1.4 is not supported. Apple's Java 1.5.0_07 is reported to work acceptably. We have no information about other vendors. Please report your findings if you try.

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

Compatibility

  • Eclipse 3.5.2 is the minimum Eclipse version for EGit 0.9 and later.

  • 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.
