Very useful extension, the integration with Visual Studio 2012 is quite good but sometimes buggy. Auto-refresh seems to take while to notice file changes and integration with Git extensions has problems - I could not successfully cherry pick commits.
Had the hanging problem after installing and opening a repo that was already tracked by "github for windows" under windows 8, needed to install the full git install from here http://git-scm.com/download/win
now loading vs2012 is fast and everything seems to work, comiting is fast and simple
Very low quality. This product should probably be at an pre-alpha release. It seems to be partially or fully (undetermined at this point) ignoring the .gitignore file. It not only affects the extensions view of files changed but also affects external clients (Git-Bash & mysysgit/powershell). In stead of rehasing i have documented the problem at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15930561/git-status-is-showing-files-it-shouldnt
If you need a git client for windows i would either recommend github for windows or the powershell/msysgit/posh-git
I can load the provider however I can not see it anywhere in VS2012. Any reason I can not see any GIT controls in VS2012 after I install it? I have used this provider quite extensively in VS2010 so I know what I am typically looking for.
Hi, I'm researching Git integration with VS2010. Git Extensions by Henk Westhuis seems to do the job quite well already. But I also found this plugin which is built upon capabilities provided already by Git Extensions.
Can anybody clarify what extra functionality on top of Git Extensions is provided if I also install the Git Source Control Provider? I have currently installed both, so I can't see clearly what function was provided by Git Extensions and what extras are added by the Git Source Control Provider plugin.
Never mind... I found for example that the Source Control Provider is responsible for showing in the icon of files in the Solution Explorer which files have been modified but are not committed to the repository yet.
Looks like I want/need both!
When I commit changes through the Pending Changes window in visual Studio it commits with Unknown as the commiter.
If I go to the Settings section in the Pending Changes window I can add my Git username and email click ok, but when I reopen settings they are blank again.
I have Git Extentions and git For Windows installed and configured with the corrcet username.
So is this a bug in the VS extension or am I being dumb?
I have an mvc project that has a large number of video files in its Content directory, although none of them are part of the solution. Starting up Visual Studio 2012 is unacceptably slow, as it is trying to connect to the git repository for this solution, and opening and closing file handles to each and every file in the Content directory tree.
Very handy extension. Many thanks. Question, though. A couple of resource files (bitmap, icon) appear in VS 2010 Solution Explorer with plus signs indicating that they are new. I checked them in, committed, pushed, closed and reopened solution and VS, but nothing seems to help. I committed from Git Bash, as well as from VS. I there are no pending changes. How do I synchronize the icons to show accurate file status?
I'm using .gitattributes
*.c text eol=crlf
*.cpp text eol=crlf
*.h text eol=crlf
The diff margin says that, all lines were modified on every file. without the eol "git hack" it used to be fine
where do i report bugs?
I really love the git history tool - and I have a few requests regarding it
How can I start it outside of the VS environment?
In the case of large history (and usually repositories get large histories) I would love it if the tool would combine multiple commits on a single line into a single box containing just the comment to the first commit - and then have the ability to expand/collapse this group to the current view of watching every single commit.
This will give a much better view in the case of branch per feature scenario (without using rebase)
thanks for a great tool
You can add the Git History Viewer to the Windows File Explorer
On the top right corner of the viewer, there is a button to toggle the view to be simplified.
