IntelliJ and Git Branch Name

I’ve recently moved from Eclipse to IntelliJ. A challenge as I’m a keyboard shortcut junkie, but that isn’t what I’m here about. I miss having the git branch name shown in the package/project view. Does anyone know of a way to configure IntelliJ to display what git branch the project is in, so I don’t […]

git am/format-patch: control format of line endings

I created a patch from three commits using git format-patch <revision_three_commits_ago> This creates three patch files that I mailed from my notebook and read the mail on my desktop computer (both are Windows boxes). When I do now git am –3way –ignore-space-change *.patch the patches apply, but I don’t get the same SHA1 IDs for […]

Ignore *all* whitespace changes with git-diff between commits

I’m going through a codebase and fixing whitespace oddities and generally correcting indentation and such things, and I want to make sure I haven’t inadvertently made any other changes, so I’m doing git diff -w to display differences in all changed files while ignoring whitespace differences. The problem is that this is not actually ignoring […]

Stash changes to specific files

I have a large git project that I, stupidly, imported to eclipse and ran an autoformat on. Now, every file in the project is showing as modified. Rather than commit my formatted files, I would rather revert all the files that I have only been formatted and not had other changes. For instance: $ git […]

Self-host remote git repository on Windows server

We have a computer on our local network designated as ‘the server’, that runs Windows XP, where we keep the shared folders and stuff that should be visible to all. How do I create a remote Git repository on it, and setup it so different people on different computers on the local network can pull/push? […]
