Magit
Description Git integration for Emacs
Author Phil Jackson
Maintainer Phil Jackson
Source https://github.com/magit/magit

Magit is an Emacs mode for working with Git repositories. It provides a convenient interface for the most common Git operations.

Basic setup

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/magit/directory")
(require 'magit)

Helpful keybindings

  • M-x magit-status is the main entry point to Magit. The author recommends binding this command to "a key of your choice". [C-x g] is a common choice:
(global-set-key (kbd "C-x g") 'magit-status)

The official Magit documentation is excellent and should be consulted for further information.

Common Customization

Change magit diff colors

If you want more common colors (green and red), instead of psyche highlighting:

(eval-after-load 'magit
   '(progn
    (set-face-foreground 'magit-diff-add "green3")
    (set-face-foreground 'magit-diff-del "red3")
    (when (not window-system)
      (set-face-background 'magit-item-highlight "black"))))

Use ido to checkout branches

(setq magit-completing-read-function 'magit-ido-completing-read)

Extensions

magit-filenotify: refresh status buffer when git tree changes

This module, to be installed with ELPA, comes with a minor mode magit-filenotify which tracks changes in the source tree using file-notify and refreshes the magit status buffer. Emacs 24.4 with `file-notify-support' is required for it to work.
