How to make eclipse neon show git branch in package view?
I just adding an existing project to GitHub using the command line.
Sometimes eclipse shows the branch in the package view like:
foo [foo master].
Also, nothing is shown in the git repositories view.
How do I get eclipse to show me the branch in the package view?

If your imported project into Eclipse workspace is a git repo, you can Share your project with Git
If without creating a new repo, the act of selecting
File > Team > Share Project and then
Git should be enough for Eclipse to reconsider how it display your project in the Package Explorer (ie with git information on it)
If this does not work, the alternate approach would be to:
- switch to a new workspace
- import the project there,
- try and share it
(which the OP Ray Tayek reports in the comments having done successfully)
The share option, as suggested by the previous answer, didn’t work for me. However, I opened Eclipse Preferences, navigated to General -> Appearance -> Label decorations, and checked Git in this View. This made current brench visible in package view.
