Love this. Much better than hoping ctrl-z can get your code back.

  • How to use this extension?

    • Seems interesting, but I cannot find how to use it inside Visual Studio. Can you provide some instructions? Thanks in advance. Regards.
    • Currently, you there is nothing to directly interact with in Visual Studio.  There is another extension, automark*, which can read the git repository and generate a time-ordered diff for you.  You could also use an existing git tool to see and interact with the history. Long-term, there are plans to merge the functionality.

    • A made a fresh project in visual studio 2013 and based on the description
      
      "autogit will automatically commit a version of a file to a local git repository everytime a change is saved in a text or code editor.  The git repository is located in $(SOLUTION)\.HistoryData\LocalHistory"
      
      I would expect autogit to make the .HistoryFolder and start commiting things every time I save but this is no the case.
      I don't know how to make this work and I can't find any directions anywhere
    • The repository is created when I open a solution but nothing is ever committed to the repository.
    • It creates a folder .HistoryData\LocalHistory, which saves the changed files and a git repository. One can see local history there. 
      To make it easier to use, it should be integrated with VS. E.g,  a dock window "autogit" ( I will dock it at the bottome of the IDE) and a context menu item "Local Changes" to see local changes.
