Latest commit b57ddd6 Nov 26, 2015 @WeeBull WeeBull Use actual `commit --amend` command for Mercurial
Rather than trying to emulate `git commit --amend` using mercurial queues (which might have side effects if you're using MQ for other things) use the `commit --amend` command which was introduced in Mercurial 2.2 (2012-05-01).

Mercurial plugin


Update .zshrc:

  1. Add name to the list of plugins, e.g. plugins=(... mercurial ...) (that is pretty obvious).
  2. Switch to a theme which uses hg_prompt_info.

    Or, customize the $PROMPT variable of your current theme to contain current folder mercurial repo info. This can be done by putting a custom version of the theme in $ZSH_CUSTOM or by changing $PROMPT in .zshrc after loading the theme.

    The robbyrussell theme is used by default, so you need to modify $PROMPT var by adding $(hg_prompt_info) after $(git_prompt_info), so it looks like this:

    PROMPT='${ret_status}%{$fg_bold[green]%}%p %{$fg[cyan]%}%c %{$fg_bold[blue]%}$(git_prompt_info)$(hg_prompt_info)%{$fg_bold[blue]%} % %{$reset_color%}'
  3. Initialize additional vars used in plugin. So in short put next in .zshrc:

    ZSH_THEME_HG_PROMPT_DIRTY="%{$fg[magenta]%}) %{$fg[yellow]%}✗%{$reset_color%}"

What's inside?

Adds handy aliases:

  • hgc - hg commit
  • hgb - hg branch
  • hgba - hg branches
  • hgbk - hg bookmarks
  • hgco - hg checkout
  • hgd - hg diff
  • hged - hg diffmerge
pull and update
  • hgi - hg incoming
  • hgl - hg pull -u
  • hglr - hg pull --rebase
  • hgo - hg outgoing
  • hgp - hg push
  • hgs - hg status
  • hgsl - hg log --limit 20 --template "{node|short} | {date|isodatesec} | {author|user}: {desc|strip|firstline}\n"
this is the 'git commit --amend' equivalent
  • hgca - hg qimport -r tip ; hg qrefresh -e ; hg qfinish tip
list unresolved files (since hg does not list unmerged files in the status command)
  • hgun - hg resolve --list

Displays repo branch and directory status in prompt

This is the same as git plugin does.

Note: Additional changes to .zshrc, or using a theme designed to use hg_prompt_info, are required in order for this to work.
