Sublime Text plugin: git

Git integration: it's pretty handy. Who knew, right?

For more information about what's supported, and how to install this, check the wiki.


Package Control

The easiest way to install this is with Package Control.

  • If you just went and installed Package Control, you probably need to restart Sublime Text before doing this next bit.
  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Control+Shift+p on Linux/Windows).
  • Select "Package Control: Install Package" (it'll take a few seconds)
  • Select Git when the list appears.

Package Control will automatically keep Git up to date with the latest version.

Basic Usage

  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Control+Shift+p on Linux/Windows).
  • Start typing "Git" and select one of the recommended commands.

The rest

If you don't want to use Package Control, check the wiki for other installation methods on various platforms.


This package works by running commands as your system git. As such, if you have problems with this package, first make sure that git is installed and configured correctly on your system.

You may want to make sure that the git binary this plugin is using is the correct one, if you have multiple ones installed. Most git installation guides will be happy to walk you through configuring your system $PATH appropriately.

If necessary, set the git_command plugin preference to tell us where to look.

fatal: unable to auto-detect email address

Git isn't configured properly. Tell it who you are, by opening a command prompt and doing this:

git config --global ""
git config --global "Your Name"

If you've done this and it's still complaining, you probably have multiple copies of git on your system which have different configuration locations, and the one which runs on your command line isn't the one which the shell $PATH exposes to Sublime Text.

fatal: could not read Username for '': Device not configured

Git isn't configured to use a system-level ssh-agent, and so it's asking you for a username and password when you try to push / pull. The plugin doesn't know how to ask you for this information.

Set up a ssh-agent and this will stop happening.
