Git log and diff plugin for vim.

Introduction

This is a simple Vim plugin that will bring up the history of a given file. It will list the history in the window-pane on the left of the screen. If you hit enter it will diff that commit against the current revision loaded.

In the log window __gitlog__ the following commands work:

o           opens the file. This will simply open the file in a new window.
s           starts a search and opens the search window.
t           open the tree view at the current commit.
<cr>        This will open the file and diff it against the window that was active when it was lauched.

In the tree window __gitlog__ the following commands work:

l           opens the local version of the file, if it exists.
d           diff's the tree view of the file against the local version.
<cr>        opens the respository version of the file, if it exists.

In the search window __gitsearch__ the two following commands work:

o           opens the file. This will simply open the file in a new window.
<cr>        This will open the file and diff it against the window that was active when it was lauched.

In the Branch window:

<cr>        This will change the log window to the branch selected. It does not change the current
            branch of the given repository.

Installation

Simply copy the contents of the plugin directory to the plugin directory in your git installation.

You will need to map the toggle function to use it.

map <silent> <f7>   :call GITLOG_FilpWindows()<cr>
map <silent> <c-f7> :call GITLOG_ToggleWindows()<cr>

And the should be it.

will load the default window type, pressing again will switch between Log and Tree view. Pressing will pull down the windows.

Issues

  • There is a minor problem with GitLog getting confused when diff's on different files are done one after another. I would simply suggest pulling down GitLog and then either opening another file, or toggle the git log windows. The solution is to add a function to pull down the diff, but working out how to keep the screen layout when this is done.

  • Submodules.

These are not handled at the moment. I am not sure how to handle these so for the moment they are just being ignored. It is the same with repos within repos. These will be handled when I know what behaviour I want GitLog to follow.

TODO

  1. Add the ability to find when (what revision) a file was first added to the repository.
