Using Windows Explorer as a Git IDE

0

I in truth trust a few quite a total lot of stationary computer systems. A
customized-built PC running Windows, an iMac G3 running Mac
OS 9 and an ragged HP microtower running Alpine Linux,
acting as a dwelling server of sorts. Out of all these, I
use most of my time on the Windows PC. I take advantage of Windows
for nearly all of my work, alongside side a huge portion of
the programming that I produce.

Even supposing I mainly use Windows, most of my
web/instrument pattern is grounded in or no longer decrease than
inspired by Unix in some manner: most obviously, I take advantage of Git,
which is a instrument designed for the Unix shell. This turns
out to be a fairly awkward match: on the one hand, I take advantage of
Windows Explorer to address the files; on the other hand,
I in truth trust a inform suggested open to address the repository.

For my workflow, it would possibly per chance probably well well be a lot better if the Git
instructions were built-in into Explorer itself. So I
added what quantities to the next code to my AutoHotKey
script
:

GroupAdd, Explorer, ahk_class CabinetWClass

GroupAdd, Explorer, ahk_class ExploreWClass

#IfWinActive ahk_group Explorer

!a::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git add "qip()" && git assign of living & slay"

!c::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git commit & slay"

!+c::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git commit --amend & slay"

!d::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git diff & slay"

!+d::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git diff "qip()" & slay"

!f::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git diff HEAD~1 HEAD & slay"

!+f::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git diff HEAD~1 HEAD "qip()" & slay"

!l::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git log & slay"

!+l::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git log "qip()" & slay"

!p::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git push foundation & slay"

!r::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git reset "qip()" && git assign of living & slay"

!s::Traipse, % "cmd /c cd "qp()" & git assign of living & slay"

#IfWinActive

Explorer(hwnd := "")

{

ShellApp := ComObjCreate("Shell.Application")

if (hwnd = "")

WinGet, hwnd, id, A

for window in ShellApp.Windows

if (window.hwnd = hwnd)

return window

return -1

}

qp()

{

return """" Explorer().Doc.Folder.Self.route """"

}

qip()

{

return """" Explorer().Doc.FocusedItem.route """"

}

(The valid code is contained in this

file, most of it end to the underside.)

This adds a bunch of hotkeys to any Explorer window:

Alt-A
“git add” the chosen file; then “git assign of living”

Alt-C
“git commit”
Alt-Shift-C
“git commit –amend”
Alt-D
“git diff”
Alt-Shift-D
“git diff” the chosen file
Alt-F
“git diff”, evaluating the earlier and most popular
commit
Alt-Shift-F
“git diff” the chosen file, evaluating the earlier
and most popular commit
Alt-L
“git log”
Alt-Shift-L
“git log” the chosen file

Alt-P
“git push”
Alt-R
“git reset” the chosen file; then “git assign of living”
Alt-S
“git assign of living”

All of these hotkeys open a brand new inform suggested window,
showing the effects of the Git inform, which the
particular person can nearby pressing any key.

In my expertise, these hotkeys make it incalculably
less bothersome to work with Git on Windows, and I ranking
it displays how extremely purposeful even fairly straightforward
AutoHotKey scripts would possibly per chance well well also be. While you’ll trust any ideas
on other hotkeys, please write a comment below.
