Options

aliases

shell

You can change the default aliases by defining these variables below. (To disable all aliases, Set the FORGIT_NO_ALIASES flag.)

forgit_log=glo
forgit_diff=gd
forgit_add=ga
forgit_reset_head=grh
forgit_ignore=gi
forgit_checkout_file=gcf
forgit_checkout_branch=gcb
forgit_checkout_commit=gco
forgit_clean=gclean
forgit_stash_show=gss
forgit_cherry_pick=gcp
forgit_rebase=grb
forgit_fixup=gfu

git

You can use git aliases by making git-forgit available in $PATH:

# after `forgit` was loaded
export PATH="$PATH:$FORGIT_INSTALL_DIR/bin"

Some plugin managers can help do this.

Then any forgit command will be a subcommand of git:

$ git forgit log
$ git forgit add
$ git forgit diff

Optionally you can add aliases in git:

git config --global alias.cf 'forgit checkout_file'

And use the alias in git:

git cf

pagers

Forgit will use the default configured pager from git (core.pager, pager.show, pager.diff) but can be altered with the following environment variables:

Use case Option Fallbacks to
common pager FORGIT_PAGER git config core.pager or cat
pager on git show FORGIT_SHOW_PAGER git config pager.show or $FORGIT_PAGER
pager on git diff FORGIT_DIFF_PAGER git config pager.diff or $FORGIT_PAGER
pager on gitignore FORGIT_IGNORE_PAGER bat -l gitignore --color always or cat
git log format FORGIT_GLO_FORMAT %C(auto)%h%d %s %C(black)%C(bold)%cr%reset

fzf options

You can add default fzf options for forgit, including keybinds, layout, etc. (No need to repeat the options already defined in FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS)

FORGIT_FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS="
--exact
--border
--cycle
--reverse
--height '80%'
"

Customizing fzf options for each command individually is also supported:

Command Option
ga FORGIT_ADD_FZF_OPTS
glo FORGIT_LOG_FZF_OPTS
gi FORGIT_IGNORE_FZF_OPTS
gd FORGIT_DIFF_FZF_OPTS
grh FORGIT_RESET_HEAD_FZF_OPTS
gcf FORGIT_CHECKOUT_FILE_FZF_OPTS
gcb FORGIT_CHECKOUT_BRANCH_FZF_OPTS
gco FORGIT_CHECKOUT_COMMIT_FZF_OPTS
gss FORGIT_STASH_FZF_OPTS
gclean FORGIT_CLEAN_FZF_OPTS
grb FORGIT_REBASE_FZF_OPTS
gfu FORGIT_FIXUP_FZF_OPTS

Complete loading order of fzf options is:

  1. FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS (fzf global)
  2. FORGIT_FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS (forgit global)
  3. FORGIT_CMD_FZF_OPTS (command specific)

Examples:

  • ctrl-d to drop the selected stash but do not quit fzf (gss specific).
FORGIT_STASH_FZF_OPTS='
--bind="ctrl-d:reload(git stash drop $(cut -d: -f1 <<<{}) 1>/dev/null && git stash list)"
'
  • ctrl-e to view the logs in a vim buffer (glo specific).
FORGIT_LOG_FZF_OPTS='
--bind="ctrl-e:execute(echo {} |grep -Eo [a-f0-9]+ |head -1 |xargs git show |vim -)"
'

other options

Option Description Default
FORGIT_LOG_FORMAT git log format %C(auto)%h%d %s %C(black)%C(bold)%cr%Creset

📦 Optional dependencies

💡 Tips

  • Most of the commands accept optional arguments (eg, glo develop, glo f738479..188a849b -- main.go, gco master).
  • gd supports specifying revision(eg, gd HEAD~, gd v1.0 README.md).
  • Call gi with arguments to get the wanted .gitignore contents directly(eg, gi cmake c++).
  • You can use the commands as sub-commands of git, see #147 for details.
