When I have this enabled, my Visual Studio frequently spikes my CPU to 100% just by scrolling my mouse. When it is not enabled, I have not seen this issue. Sorry, but these facts cause me to blame this extension. It has happened to me on two different laptops so far using Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2010.
Every time i write a character, the entire left blue track-bar flickers. This is so tedious that this plugin is effectively unusable. I find i mind-boggling why the author would not notice this and hence not fix it?..
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
For VS 2015, please use "Git Tools" extension, successor of this extension which runs side by side with Microsoft Git.
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.
I also experience this, VS startup time is way too long. I am developing a visual studio package, and so when i debug my code, it starts another instance of VS - which also suffers from the slow down. So not only do I experience this slow down on initial startup (which I may be able to live with) but every time I debug.
I've just moved from Subversion to Git, and the first thing I noticed with this plugin is that it shows files which are not in the current solution. I can't put them in a .gitignore file, because they are part of another solution. It looks like this plugin is just looking at files in the solution folder, not the files in the solution. Does anyone know whether I can make the plugin omit files which are not in the solution?
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?
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?
