Emacs: Quickly find files in a git, mercurial or other repository
This library provides a drop-in replacement for find-file (ie. the "C-x f" command), that auto-completes all files in the current git, mercurial, or other type of repository. When outside of a repository, find-file-in-repository conveniently drops back to using find-file, (or ido-find-file), which makes it a suitable replacement for the "C-x f" keybinding.
It is similar to, but faster and more robust than the find-file-in-project package. It relies on git/mercurial/etc to provide fast cached file name completions, which means that repository features such as .gitignore/.hgignore/etc are fully supported out of the box.
This library currently has support for:
git, mercurial, darcs, bazaar, monotone, svn
Contributions for support of other repository types are welcome. Please send a pull request to https://github.com/hoffstaetter/find-file-in-repository and I will be happy to include your modifications.
