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 1 year ago • updated by Géza Husi 2 months 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 1 year ago • updated by Marc Strapetz 1 year 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.

Log: Copy Relative Path when multiple files selected

In the Log window when you select multiple files in the files tab, you can't use Copy Relative Path. You can use it only when one file selected.
