GRV is a terminal based interface for viewing git repositories. It allows refs, commits and diffs to be viewed, searched and filtered. The behaviour and style can be customised through configuration. A query language can be used to filter refs and commits, see the Documentation section for more information.
More screenshots can be seen here
- Commits and refs can be filtered using a query language.
- Changes to the repository are captured by monitoring the filesystem allowing the UI to be updated automatically.
- Organised as tabs and splits. Custom tabs and splits can be created using any combination of views.
- Vi like keybindings by default, key bindings can be customised.
- Custom themes can be created.
- Mouse support.
- Commit Graph.
Documentation for GRV is available here
grv is currently an alias used by oh-my-zsh. Add
unalias grv to the end of your
.zshrc to invoke GRV.
Static binaries are available for Linux. For example, to use the amd64 binary run the following steps:
wget -O grv https://github.com/rgburke/grv/releases/download/v0.3.0/grv_v0.3.0_linux64 chmod +x ./grv ./grv -repoFilePath /path/to/repo
GRV is available in homebrew and can be installed with:
brew install grv
GRV can be installed as a binary package
pkg install grv
or from ports
cd /usr/ports/devel/grv && make install clean
Go version 1.8 or later is required. GRV depends on the following libraries:
- cmake (to build libgit2)
Building GRV on OSX requires homebrew, and for
cmake to be installed using homebrew:
brew install readline pkg-config cmake
To install GRV run:
go get -d github.com/rgburke/grv/cmd/grv cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/rgburke/grv make install
To install grv with an alternative binary name change the last step to:
make install BINARY=NewBinaryName
NewBinaryName is the alternative name to use instead.
The steps above will install GRV to
$GOPATH/bin. A static libgit2 will be built and included in GRV when built this way. Alternatively if libgit2 version 0.27 is installed on your system GRV can be built normally:
go install ./cmd/grv
