⚙ Options

You can change the default aliases by defining these variables below. (To disable all aliases, Set the FORGIT_NO_ALIASES flag.)

forgit_log=glo
forgit_diff=gd
forgit_add=ga
forgit_reset_head=grh
forgit_ignore=gi
forgit_restore=gcf
forgit_clean=gclean
forgit_stash_show=gss
forgit_cherry_pick=gcp

Forgit will use the default configured pager from git (core.pager, pager.show, pager.diff) but can be altered with the following environment variables:

Use case Option Fallbacks to
common pager FORGIT_PAGER git config core.pager or cat
pager on git show FORGIT_SHOW_PAGER git config pager.show or $FORGIT_PAGER
pager on git diff FORGIT_DIFF_PAGER git config pager.diff or $FORGIT_PAGER
pager on gitignore FORGIT_IGNORE_PAGER bat -l gitignore --color always or cat

You can add default fzf options for forgit, including keybinds, layout, etc. (No need to repeat the options already defined in FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS)

FORGIT_FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS="
--exact
--border
--cycle
--reverse
--height '80%'
"

Customizing fzf options for each command individually is also supported:

Command Option
ga FORGIT_ADD_FZF_OPTS
glo FORGIT_LOG_FZF_OPTS
gi FORGIT_IGNORE_FZF_OPTS
gd FORGIT_DIFF_FZF_OPTS
grh FORGIT_RESET_HEAD_FZF_OPTS
gcf FORGIT_CHECKOUT_FZF_OPTS
gss FORGIT_STASH_FZF_OPTS
gclean FORGIT_CLEAN_FZF_OPTS

Complete loading order of fzf options is:

  1. FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS (fzf global)
  2. FORGIT_FZF_DEFAULT_OPTS (forgit global)
  3. FORGIT_CMD_FZF_OPTS (command specific)

Example

  • ctrl-d to drop the selected stash but do not quit fzf (gss specific).
FORGIT_STASH_FZF_OPTS='
--bind="ctrl-d:reload(git stash drop $(cut -d: -f1 <<<{}) 1>/dev/null && git stash list)"
'
  • ctrl-e to view the logs in a vim buffer (glo specific).
FORGIT_LOG_FZF_OPTS='
--bind="ctrl-e:execute(echo {} |grep -Eo [a-f0-9]+ |head -1 |xargs git show |vim -)"
'

📦 Optional dependencies

💡 Tips

  • Hit q to quit from full screen preview any time.
  • Commands like glo, gd, gcf and gclean accept arguments to restrain the items listed in fzf(eg, glo develop, glo f738479..188a849b -- main.go, gclean output/ etc.).
  • gd supports specifying revision(eg, gd HEAD~, gd v1.0 README.md).
  • Call gi with arguments to get the wanted .gitignore contents directly(eg, gi cmake c++).
