extradite.vim: a git commit browser

an extension for fugitive.vim

extradite.vim is a wrapper around git log -- [file].

I wanted tight integration between tig and vim, but there was no good way to do it. So I've replicated some of tig's functionality within vim instead.

:Extradite toggles the commit log of the current file. In the log view,

  • t toggles the preview-diff window
  • <cr> opens the commit under the selected line
  • d[h|v|t] diffs the selected commit against the current file

Do :help Extradite for more info, or take a look at the README.

Note: fugitive.vim must be installed! Also, :Extradite will only run on files that are under version control.
