First of all this is the must have plugin for git in eclipse collabrate is easy the gitflow is nicely integrated nice work!

​But is it also possible to add the GitFlow entry in your menu now it is somewhat to deep and directly having a gitflow entry in the menu would be a benefit for us.

Thank you for making our lives easier!

Hi Kevin,

thanks for your nice Feedback! Personally I like to use the Quick Access when working with the Gitflow plug-in. Just press Ctrl+3 while a repository, a resource or an editor is selected, and start typing "start feature", and you will quickly see the command to start a new Gitflow feature. Pressing enter will execute it.

The Gitflow sub-menu is quite large, so I would prefer not to move it to the main menu (which itself is quite large already), but if you have a good idea to make the Gitflow commands available with less clicks, let me know, or better even, raise a new bug in the Bugzilla.

One option that comes to mind is adding optional toolbar actions, which could be added by the user to any perspective, using the "customize perspective" dialog. But that is just my first idea.

I am testing gitflow command line (1.10.2) and and your plug-in.

I have noticed that your plug-in does not respect configuration value like gitflow.feature.start.fetch=true stored in .gitconfig.

I was wondering, is it possible to configure the default behaviour of your plug-in somehow?

Hi Andreas,

great to hear you want to try EGits Gitflow support. From the version you mentioned, I'm guessing you are using the gitflow-avh fork of the command line tools. Correct? Though, it looks like nvie's tools already support this configuration option [1].

I think it absolutely makes sense to add support for this to EGit. Could you raise a new bug in Bugzilla for this [2]?

Hi Max,

Correct, 1.11.0 (AVH Edition) it's the version shipped with standard git version

I have raised this bug,

I would actually thing that it make sense to have complete 1.11.0 (AVH Edition) support in egit gitflow since this is the standard version shipped for windows. Just my idea

After installing the plugin from the Marketplace (Gitflow Nightly, version 4.2.0) in STS 3.7.2 based on Eclipse 4.5.1 I experience a very slow UI response. Every key stroke requires about 5 seconds to process. Before the installation Eclipse was really running fast, but after the installation it is no use anymore.

Are these plugins not compatible? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your feedback! I'm not sure what could be causing this issue, so it would be great, if you could help us narrowing it down.
Did you have the Eclipse error reporting turned on? If so, any UI freezes should have been reported, and we should be able to see the details (e.g. which thread froze) soon.

Could you also try to reproduce the issue with your setup, but with this version of Gitflow instead:

In any case, feel free to open a bug here:
This will tell us if any recent commits caused this issue.
