Journal: option to show remote and local commits for an auxiliary branch

Ed_S 3 years ago • updated by Thomas Singer 3 years ago 0

In the Journal, it would be nice to be able to show the remote and local commits for an auxiliary branch at the same time. For example develop and origin/develop. This would be really helpful when working on a feature branch.


Remotes context menu: Push to... preselects the selected remote

ck05 3 years ago 0

When the context menu from the "Remotes" list is invoked and "Push to.." is selected, it would be nice if the remote on which the context menu has been opened would be preselected.

I found myself more than once almost pushing to the wrong remote.

Alternatively, there should be an entry in the context menu named "push to this remote".

After all that's why it is called a context menu, because it should respect the context. Other context menus of SmartGit use that logic.


Blame Window VCR Controls for Navigating Commits

It would be very helpful to have some "VCR Controls" (arrow buttons) in the Blame window to navigate between commits.


Export/Import settings and/or better `git push/clone` my SmartGit settings to my repo.

It would be very nice to save SmartGit settings as Git/Hg repo. And simple buttons Export and Import in Settings dialog is very useful when working on several machines or OSes

Support signing git commits

When creating a commit, add a checkbox that enables signing commits with GPG, just like using `git commit -S`.


Spell Check in Commit Message Window

Spell checking in the commit message window would be very helpful for those late night bleary-eyed commits.


Push: add support for "git push refs/for/master"

Adrien Béraud 3 years ago • updated by Géza Husi 2 years ago 5

We use Gerrit for code review, and integration with smartgit could be better.

Gerrit wants commits ready for review to be pushed to special branches like refs/for/master etc.

SmartGit has no sort of special support for those branches or other Gerrit features, so it's currently more convenient to use the "git-review" command instead of the GUI.


Separate command output log file (in addition to log.txt)

Craig Caulfield 3 years ago • updated by Marc Strapetz 3 years ago 5

The output log is great idea. I can see (and learn from) the commands being executed.

You can go through the log files in the .settings directory but they're logging lots of other activity besides the straight Git/Mercurial commands. It would be handy to see just the VCS commands and their output.
