This is no support platform! To report bugs or request support, please contact us directly. If in doubt ask us.


First search for a similar request and add your votes or comments there.


Take the time to describe your request as precise as possible, so we (Syntevo) and other users will understand what you want. A plain request "SmartGit should look cool" is too vague because we don't know what we should change, and hence will not be approved by us.


Thank you for your help!

True dark color mode

Mickaël PERRIN 2 years ago • updated by Thomas Singer 12 months ago 58

Latest RC introduced a dark color scheme.


This is good but sadly when working at night the side panes are still white and occurs lot of eye strain.


I would love to see a color switch of the whole interface including panes, menus, button bar...

"Pin" branches to the left in the log.

mmurrell 2 years ago • updated by Marc Strapetz 1 month ago 15

Update: If you want to explicitly specify the sort order of branches, vote for https://smartgit.userecho.com/topics/833.


In a typical workflow, I develop on a "Sprint" branch, merge code into a "Test" branch, followed by a merge into a "Production" branch. However, the ordering of commits in SmartGit can make it challenging to see exactly where my Test/Prod branches were merged. Further, it can be challenging to see if a certain commit has made it live.


I have photoshopped a sample (below) of my log to describe the desired end-case. In this example, the "Production" branch has been pinned to the left, and was randomly chosen to be yellow. The Test branch has been pinned second to the left in red. The Sprint branch has been pinned as the third branch is in Green.


All other commits on un-pinned branches revert to the display logic that currently exists in Smart-Git

Log: make branch-line coloring easier to understand [SG-11160]

gsimard 2 years ago • updated by Marc Strapetz 8 months ago 63

Purple, green, pink, orange, thin/thick lines .... what branch is which?



It would be useful to have a mean to determine the branch associated to each line.

Also, hoovering the mouse cursor over a line would show the branch name and the last 'x' GIT operations made against that branch.

Apply Stash: allow ability to apply selected files only

lesley_freed 2 years ago • updated by Thomas Singer 2 months ago 13

Applying a stash may fail due to conflicts. It would be helpful to be able to view what is in a stash and selectively apply a subset of the files.

All smartgit.properties settings should be discoverable and editable in a UI dialog

Christopher Kline 2 years ago • updated by Thomas Singer 7 months ago 8

There's a large number of very useful customizations that can be made via smartgit.properties.


However,


  1. It's very hard to know what all the available options are (they're scattered across various web pages, and these docs are sometimes updated sporadically or slowly)
  2. There's no way to know when a new setting become available unless it happens to be mentioned in the release notes (which it often is not), and you are diligent enough to read every release note
  3. When properties are removed from the application, they can remain (non-functional) in your smartgit.properties
  4. If the setting is misspelled in smartgit.properties, there's no obvious indication of a problem

What I would like is for a UI dialog (perhaps "Customize") to list, document (via a tooltip) and allow editing of every supported setting that can be configured in smartgit.properties.


I'm fine with the editing being raw text like it is now. I just want everything in one place.


A bonus would be a column listing what version the setting was introduced in, so it's easy to see when new settings have been added.

GUI for Git lfs

smartgit 2 years ago • updated by Thomas Singer 3 weeks ago 11

Git lfs is a great, additional feature when using Git for situations, where blobs need to versioned, too. I would love to see a nice GUI integration of Git "large file storage".
