Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Git integration of coc.nvim.

Note: many useful features not implemented, it's recommended to use plugin like vim-fugitive at the same time.

Statusline integration

  • g:coc_git_status including git branch and current project status.
  • b:coc_git_status including changed lines of current buffer.
  • b:coc_git_blame including blame info of current line.

Example for lightline user:

" lightline
let g:lightline = {
  \ 'active': {
  \   'left': [
  \     [ 'mode', 'paste' ],
  \     [ 'ctrlpmark', 'git', 'diagnostic', 'cocstatus', 'filename', 'method' ]
  \   ],
  \   'right':[
  \     [ 'filetype', 'fileencoding', 'lineinfo', 'percent' ],
  \     [ 'blame' ]
  \   ],
  \ },
  \ 'component_function': {
  \   'blame': 'LightlineGitBlame',
  \ }
\ }

function! LightlineGitBlame() abort
  let blame = get(b:, 'coc_git_blame', '')
  " return blame
  return winwidth(0) > 120 ? blame : ''

If you're not using statusline plugin, you can add them to statusline by:

set statusline^=%{get(g:,'coc_git_status','')}%{get(b:,'coc_git_status','')}%{get(b:,'coc_git_blame','')}

User autocmd

autocmd User CocGitStatusChange {command}

Triggered after the g:coc_git_status b:coc_git_status b:coc_git_blame has changed.

Could be used for update the statusline.


Create keymappings like:

" navigate chunks of current buffer
nmap [g <Plug>(coc-git-prevchunk)
nmap ]g <Plug>(coc-git-nextchunk)
" navigate conflicts of current buffer
nmap [c <Plug>(coc-git-prevconflict)
nmap ]c <Plug>(coc-git-nextconflict)
" show chunk diff at current position
nmap gs <Plug>(coc-git-chunkinfo)
" show commit contains current position
nmap gc <Plug>(coc-git-commit)
" create text object for git chunks
omap ig <Plug>(coc-git-chunk-inner)
xmap ig <Plug>(coc-git-chunk-inner)
omap ag <Plug>(coc-git-chunk-outer)
xmap ag <Plug>(coc-git-chunk-outer)


Use command :CocCommand to open commands and type git. to get all git related commands.

  • :CocCommand git.copyUrl Copy url of current line to clipboard
  • :CocCommand git.chunkInfo Show chunk info under cursor.
  • :CocCommand git.chunkUndo Undo current chunk.
  • :CocCommand git.chunkStage Stage current chunk.
  • :CocCommand git.chunkUnstage Unstage chunk that contains current line.
  • :CocCommand git.diffCached Show cached diff in preview window.
  • :CocCommand git.showCommit Show commit of current chunk.
  • :CocCommand git.browserOpen Open current line in browser
  • :CocCommand git.foldUnchanged Fold unchanged lines of current buffer.
  • :CocCommand git.toggleGutters Toggle git gutters in sign column.
  • :CocCommand git.push push code of current branch to remote.

Work with git lists

To open a specified coc list, you have different ways:

  • Run :CocList and select the list by <CR>.

  • Run :CocList and type name of list for completion.

  • Create keymap for open specified list with list options, like:

    nnoremap <silent> <space>g  :<C-u>CocList --normal gstatus<CR>

To toggle list mode, use <C-o> and i.

To move up&down on insertmode, use <C-j> and <C-k>

To run a action, press <tab> and select the action.

For more advance usage, checkout :h coc-list.

Issue autocomplete from multiple GitHub repositories

To enable autocompletion of issues from multiple GitHub repositories, put a comma-separated list of issue repository specifiers in the git config variable coc-git.issuesources. An issue repository specifier looks like this: github/neoclide/coc-git.

  • The first part specifies the issue provider, currently only "github" is supported
  • The second part specifies the organization or owner of the repository
  • The third part specifies the repository name

Multiple repositories can be specified using comma separation, like this: github/neoclide/coc-git,github/neoclide/coc.nvim


Q: Virtual text not working.

A: Make sure your neovim support virtual text by command :echo exists('*nvim_buf_set_virtual_text').
