IDEA integration

To invoke DeepGit from within IntelliJ IDEA, open the Preferences, go to Tools|External Tools and create a new tool there:

  • Parameters: $FilePath$ --line-number=$LineNumber$
  • Working directory: $ProjectFileDir$

An example configuration for Windows might look like:

Finally, confirm with OK. Now you can invoke DeepGit using Tools|External Tools|DeepGit. To assign a shortcut to quickly invoke DeepGit, open the Preferences, go to KeyMap and configure the shortcut for External Tools|External Tools|DeepGit. For instance, you might want to assign Alt+Shift+D:

Eclipse integration

To invoke DeepGit from within Eclipse, invoke Run|External Tools|External Tools Configuration and create a new configuration there:

  • Working directory: ${git_work_tree}
  • Parameters: ${resource_loc}

An example configuration for Windows might look like:

Now you will be able to invoke DeepGit using Run|External Tools|DeepGit.

Microsoft Visual Studio integration

To invoke DeepGit from within Microsoft Visual Studio, invoke Tools|External Tools... and create a new configuration there:

  • Arguments: $(ItemPath) --line-number=$(CurLine)

An example configuration might look like:

Now Git DeepGit will be available from the Tools menu.

Note that this example is using a portable installation of DeepGit which is located at P:\!Path_Tools\DeepGit.

Sublime integration

You can invoke DeepGit from within Sublime using a Plugin:

  • Locate your Sublime settings directory (in my case C:\Users\marc\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages)
  • In sub-directory packages/user, create a python file with following content:
import sublime, sublime_plugin
from subprocess import Popen

class DeepgitCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
    def run(self, edit):
        for region in self.view.sel():
            row = self.view.rowcol(self.view.line(region).begin())[0] + 1
            fname = self.view.file_name()
            if fname is not None:
              Popen(["c:/program files (x86)/deepgit/bin/deepgit.exe", fname, "--line-number", str(row)])
  • Be sure to use the correct path to the DeepGit executable in the last line. On Windows, c:/program files (x86)/deepgit/bin/deepgit.exe will most likely be fine
  • Restart Sublime
  • Open a file from your Git repository
  • Open the Sublime console (View|Show Console)
  • Now you should be able to invoke DeepGit by entering following command:
  • If anything is wrong, Sublime should report a reasonable error message

To assign a keyboard shortcut for DeepGit (e.g. Alt+Shift+D), open Preferences|Key Bindings and add a new binding, like:

    { "keys": ["alt+shift+d"], "command": "deepgit" }
