Extension is not perfect but no alternative really.

Much preferred to the built in support for GIT in VS 2013.

Git Extensions is great in Visual Studio, and the standalone interface is more intuitive than TortoiseGit's. Thanks for all your work on this.

Half-star. Don't waste your time. Does not work, throws out of bounds exceptions when its looking for indexes into menu's (crazy thing to do). Complete junk.

    • Will this be updated to vs2012?
      Thank You for a good tool.
    • I would like to have a VS 2012 version as well. This is the best tool for Git users.
    • Actually, the version available here lists VS 2012 as being supported:
      However, I am getting an error while starting VS 2012:
      Error Message: <Unknown Error>
      Error number: 80131515
  • Visual Studio 20120 support

    • I can install this plugin from within VS2012, I initialize it from the Options menu as described, but it doesn't seem to work at all.
      * No icons are displayed in the Solution Explorer, no matter if I choose "Tortoise" or not, or disable "Auto-Rerfesh" or not.
      * The "Git pending changes" menu shows nothing, does nothing, no matter if I initialized a Git repository from outside or inside VS.
      Is an update for VS2012 planned? Thanks.
    • Oops, wrong extension, sorry, I meant to post that to "Git Source Control Provider".
  • Git Extension for Atmel Studio 6
    1 Posts | Last post August 04, 2012
    • Hi,
      Atmel Studio 6 ( is an IDE developed on top of VS 2010 Shell. There is a version of AnkhSVN available at its Extension Gallery.
      This .git extension is really cool, it would be nice if this extension can be compiled for Atmel Studio also, it could help lots of developers using .git. 
      Updating the supported products, actually makes it work now, but hasn't been tested:
            <IsolatedShell Version="6.0">AtmelStudio</IsolatedShell>

    • Please update icons for files in solution explorer when the text changes, even if it is not saved yet.
  • Icons for folders

    • Please implement icons also for folders in solution explorer.
  • Why only 1.84 available?

    • It would be nice to be able to install this from within Visual Studio 2010's extension manager, but I don't want to install a version that's several versions old.
