I’ve release tig version 1.1 with a bunch of improvements and bug fixes.
Note that tig no longer uses move/copy detection by default to work
better on large repository. See the release notes below on how to
restore the old behavior.
What is tig?
Tig is an ncurses-based text-mode interface for git. It functions mainly
as a git repository browser, but can also assist in staging changes for
commit at chunk level and act as a pager for output from various git
Git URL: git://github.com/jonas/tig.git
Disable diff move/copy detection by default, boosting diff
performance on larger projects. Use git config diff.renames option
(git-wide) to set your preferred behavior. Environment variable
TIG_DIFF_OPTS can be used to restore the old behavior.
Values set for author-width and filename-width will result in widths
one character bigger than previously.
Typing a text in the prompt will be interpreted as a tig command.
Prefixing the command with a ! will execute this system command in
an external pager. Entering a single key will execute the
corresponding key binding.
Basic support for wrapping long line in pager, diff, and stage views.
set wrap-lines = yes. (GH #2)
User-defined commands prefixed with a ? means prompt before
bind main B !?git rebase -i %(commit).
User-defined commands prefixed with a < means exit after execution.
bind main C !<git commit. (GH #66)
User-defined commands are executed unquoted to support shell commands.
bind generic I !@sh -c "echo -n %(commit) | xclip -selection c".
Configure case-insensitive searches using:
set ignore-case = yes.
Add “deleted mode” line type for better diff coloring.
Open editor when requesting edit action from within a file diff.
Update AX_WITH_CURSES to build under Cygwin.
Improve tigrc(5) documentation. (Debian #682766)
Allow to build on Mac OS 10.7 without the configure script. (GH #25)
Add option to split the view vertically instead of horizontally.
Example: ‘set vertical-split = yes’. (GH #76)
Add show-id and id-width options to configure the display of
commit IDs in the main view and ID width in the blame view. (GH #77)
Allow to override git-based encoding to UTF-8 by setting
i18n.commitencoding or gui.encoding.
Improve autobuild support to track generated files and work with
Commit IDs are read from stdin when –stdin is given; works for main
and diff view, e.g.
tig --no-walk --stdin < cherry-picks.txt.
Add option to disable focusing of the child view when it’s opened.
set focus-child = no. (GH #83)
Allow to open blob related with added content in a diff. (GH #91)
Fix commit graph regression when a path spec is specified. (GH #53)
Main view: only show staged/unstaged changes for the current branch.
Support submodules created with current version of git. (GH #54)
Fix diff status message for file diffs with no content changes.
Fix parent blaming when tig is launched in subdirectory. (GH #70)
Do not show deleted branch when reloading the branch view.
