In our company all deployed packages contains the GIT SHA1, so we can know what code level is running. From time to time, we have to check where a specific SHA1 is located in the log. To achieve this, we need two steps :
- fill in the search field with the SHA1, enter
- on the found commit, right click and select the "reveal commit" option
Not very pleasant...
But this is more of a general question : this choice of hiding everything to give only the found commit(s) is too much often not in phase with what we need in our team, so I suppose this is a common problem.
I would suggest one of those solutions :
- if only one commit is found (or we're obviously searching on commit IDs ?), then just jump to this commit in the log, and otherwise keep current implementation (display search results)
- highlight the found commits in the log, and have next / previous buttons
- have a separate search results window (maybe not a real window but a tooltip ?)
