What you can do:

  • Filter Merge Requests which are assigned to you, waiting for your approval, etc
  • Check pipeline status and approval status.
  • Select and review 1 or all commits
  • Do code review, navigate code with Diff View right in your IDE.
  • Add, reply, resolve or delete comments
  • Approve/revoke your approval
  • More and more features will be coming soon :)

Currently the plugin supports GitLab only (gitlab cloud and self-hosted).

The plugin is an open source released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International license.

It's totally free if you are using it for public repositories.

For private repositories, this plugin is a trial. How long is the trial period? Equal to WINRAR's trial period 🙈

Community Edition (CE) is exactly the same as Enterprise Edition (EE). You don't need to hack or find a cracked version. Cracking software invites virus to your computer.
