All files ignored by git is marked with +


This is a problem, I am not currently sure the best way to handle this though, but it is something I am thinking about.

The problem is, the file is not in your repo, so as far as the diff is concerned, all the lines are new.

A possible solution would be to parse the .gitignore to see if the current file matches any of the regex's, but this could be expensive especially for long .gitignore files.

How about doing a git status first to check the status of the file ?


@genezys That might work, I was also considering checking if lines-added == total-lines then don't process.

@jisaacks Never show all lines as inserted - fixes #6
If all lines are marked as inserted in can only be 3 possible scenarios:

 - It is a brand new file not added to the repo yet (so they shouldn't be shown)
 - It is an ignored file from the .gitignore (so they shouldn't be shown)
 - It is a file that was commited with 0 lines so now all lines truly are insertions (not likely)
