Customization

Remote types

By default browse-at-remote knows how to work with popular remote types (github/gitlab..). Knowledge how to work with certain remote-type comes from mapping browse-at-remote-remote-type-domains. It defines that github.com should be treat in github manner, bitbucket.org in bitbucket manner and so on. In your development you may have some specific git-url, and browse-at-remote will before confuse which remote-type map to your domain.

Two solution available:

  1. In that case you can to customize that. (M-x customize ... browse-at-remote-remote-type-domains). For now our package supports next remote-types:

    • bitbucket.com
    • gitlab.com
    • github.com
    • Stash
    • git.savannah.gnu.org
    • gist.github.com
    • Phabricator
    • git.sr.ht
    • pagure.io
    • vs-ssh.visualstudio.com
  2. Set specific remote-type directly in git repo. For example, if your repository is hosted on GitHub enterprise, you should add following setting to its config:

    git config --add browseAtRemote.type "github"
    

    or for private Stash repository use command:

    git config --add browseAtRemote.type "stash"
    

Excluding line number if no region is selected

By default browse-at-remote add line number when region is not selected in file attached buffer. If you don't like that and what to see no line information URL, it's possible to disable that by adding::

(setq browse-at-remote-add-line-number-if-no-region-selected nil)

Or setting via UI with M-x customize.

Adding new remote type

You can your own remote if you need - PRs are welcome! Please see good examples here: gnu-savannah-remote, or stash-remote.

Usage:

  1. Call function from emacs buffer:

    M-x browse-at-remote
    

    or:

    M-x bar-browse

    or just call C-c g g if you've already added binding before. You can use this command in dired buffers too.

  2. Target page at github/bitbucket will be opened using your default browser:
