Text Editor Blame and History Integration (Notepad++ ideally)

Michael Sander 3 years ago updated by Thomas Singer 3 years ago 1

I spend most of my time in my text editor. It would be really nice if I could use a keyboard shortcut within the editor to get a SmartGit git history of the file I'm looking at. Similarly, it would be great if I could highlight a line in a file and get a git blame report of changes to that line.

I use Notepad++, so obviously I'm biased and I'd like to see support there (they have a nice plugin architecture), but I imagine this RFE would apply to other editors as well.


You already can open, e.g. the blame for a certain file using command line parameters: http://www.syntevo.com/doc/display/SG/Command-Line+Options
