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.
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 (amd64 and arm32). For example, to use the amd64 binary run the following steps:
wget -O grv https://github.com/rgburke/grv/releases/download/v0.1.3/grv_v0.1.3_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 0.26 is installed on your system GRV can be built normally:
go install ./cmd/grv
