I launch git-cola from the Ubuntu launch bar.
It would be nice if the initial open/clone/etc dialog had a short list of the most recently opened repos, so that I could just click again, and avoid having to go through the open-dialog.
Please ask for git-cola v1.8.0 in Ubuntu. We have this feature ;-) it was addressed in #135
I think we're talking about different things.
I'm now running the latest stuff directly from GIT, and I see the following buttons:
on the very first dialog that launches when the app opens from the launchbar.
It's on this dialog that I would love a small list to appear with the most-recently-used repos listed.
We're talking about the same thing. What version does the "Help -> About" dialog say?
If you're running from cola's git repo you can make the prompt come up by running bin/git-cola --prompt
If there are no recently used repos then the list will not be displayed. This is a new feature, though. Can you let me know what version you're seeing in the about dialog?
Help->About says "v1.8.0"
If I launch git-cola from inside my repo's directory, I can see that it has a File Menu, which has a an "Open Recent" sub-menu, which lists the most recently accessed repos.
But if I launch git-cola --prompt then I don't see any menus or lists, just 4 buttons.
Interesting (I only say that because it works for me). I'll try to repro this tomorrow on different hardware, different OS and see if I get different results. Hmm.. what happens if you add a bookmark? Do you have any bookmarks? I wonder if the code bails out early if there are no bookmarks...
widgets.startup: Show recent files when no bookmarks exist
We were hiding the list of repositories when no bookmarks exist.
We should also check for recent repositories.

What's a bookmark?
If it's something native to git, then maybe, since I'm working with the LibreOffice repo, which is likely to have all kinds of weird stuff in it.
Yup, that was the problem. Thanks for the help.
Sweet, just did a pull, and it's working now!
