2008-02-16add--interactive: handle initial commit betterJeff King
There were several points where we looked at the HEAD commit; for initial commits, this is meaningless. So instead we: - show staged status data as a diff against the empty tree instead of HEAD - show file diffs as creation events - use "git rm --cached" to revert instead of going back to the HEAD commit We magically reference the empty tree to implement this.

2008-01-07add--interactive: allow diff colors without interactive colorsJeff King
Users with color.diff set to true/auto will not see color in "git add -i" unless they also set color.interactive. This changes the semantics of color.interactive to control only the coloring of the interaction aspect of the command and let color.diff to control the color of hunk picker, which would arguably be more convenient. Old $use_color variable is now renamed to $menu_use_color to make it clear that it is about coloring the interaction. The "colored" subroutine now checks if the passed color is defined, instead of checking $use_color variable, to decide if the lines should be colored. The various variables that define colors for different parts of the output are set or unset depending on the setting of color.interactive and color.diff configuration variables.

2008-01-07add--interactive: remove unused diff colorsJeff King
When color support was added, we colored the diffs ourselves. However, 4af756f3 changed this to simply run "git diff-files" twice, keeping the colored output separately. This makes the internal diff color variables obsolete with one exception: when splitting hunks, we have to manually recreate the fragment for each part of the split. Thus we keep $fraginfo_color around to do that correctly. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-12-08Teach "git add -i" to colorize whitespace errorsWincent Colaiuta
Rather than replicating the colorization logic of "git diff-files" we rely on "git diff-files" itself. This guarantees consistent colorization in and outside "git add -i". Seeing as speed is not a concern here (the bottleneck is how fast the user can read, not how fast "git diff-files" runs) we do this by actually running it twice, once without color and once with. In this way as the whitespace colorization provided by "git diff-files" evolves (per-path attributes, new classes of whitespace error), "git add -i" will automatically benefit from it and stay in synch. Also, by working with two sets of diff output (an uncolorized one for internal processing and a colorized one for display only) we minimize the risk of regressions because the changes required to implement this are minimally invasive.

2007-12-06Color support for "git-add -i"Junio C Hamano
This is mostly lifted from earlier series by Dan Zwell, but updated to use "git config --get-color" and "git config --get-colorbool" to make it simpler and more consistent with commands written in C. A new configuration color.interactive variable is like color.diff and color.status, and controls if "git-add -i" uses color. A set of configuration variables, color.interactive.<slot>, are used to define what color is used for the prompt, header, and help text. For perl scripts, provides $repo->get_color() method, which takes the slot name and the default color, and returns the terminal escape sequence to color the output text. $repo->get_colorbool() method can be used to check if color is set to be used for a given operation.

2007-12-02add -i: allow prefix highlighting for "Add untracked" as well.Wincent Colaiuta
These changes make the automatic prefix highlighting work with the "Add untracked" subcommand in git-add--interactive by explicitly handling arrays, hashes and strings internally (previously only arrays and hashes were handled). In addition, prefixes which have special meaning for list_and_choose (things like "*" for "all" and "-" for "deselect) are explicitly excluded (highlighting these prefixes would be misleading).

2007-11-30Highlight keyboard shortcuts in git-add--interactiveWincent Colaiuta
The user interface provided by the command loop in git-add--interactive gives the impression that subcommands can only be launched by entering an integer identifier from 1 through 8. A "hidden" feature is that any string can be entered, and a regex search anchored at the beginning of the string is used to find the uniquely matching option. This patch makes this feature a little more obvious by highlighting the first character of each subcommand (for example "patch" is displayed as "[p]atch"). A new function is added to detect the shortest unique prefix and this is used to decide what to highlight. Highlighting is also applied when choosing files. In the case where the common prefix may be unreasonably large highlighting is omitted; in this patch the soft limit (above which the highlighting will be omitted for a particular item) is 0 (in other words, there is no soft limit) and the hard limit (above which highlighting will be omitted for all items) is 3, but this can be tweaked. The actual highlighting is done by the highlight_prefix function, which will enable us to implement ANSI color code-based highlighting (most likely using underline or boldface) in the future.

2007-11-25Add "--patch" option to git-add--interactiveWincent Colaiuta
When the "--patch" option is supplied, the patch_update_cmd() function is called bypassing the main_loop() and exits. Seeing as builtin-add is the only caller of git-add--interactive we can impose a strict requirement on the format of the arguments to avoid possible ambiguity: an "--" argument must be used whenever any pathspecs are passed, both with the "--patch" option and without it.

2007-11-23git-add -i: allow multiple selection in patch subcommandJunio C Hamano
This allows more than one files from the list to be chosen from the patch subcommand instead of going through the file one by one. This also updates the "list-and-choose" UI for usability. When the prompt ends with ">>", if you type '*' to choose all choices, the prompt immediately returns the choice without requiring an extra empty line to confirm the selection.

2007-11-22Add path-limiting to git-add--interactiveWincent Colaiuta
Implement Junio's suggestion that git-add--interactive should reproduce the path-limiting semantics of non-interactive git-add. In otherwords, if "git add -i" (unrestricted) shows paths from a set A, "git add -i paths..." should show paths from a subset of the set A and that subset should be defined with the existing ls-files pathspec semantics.

2007-11-22Refactor patch_update_cmdWincent Colaiuta
Split patch_update_cmd into two functions, one to prompt the user for a path to patch and another to do the actual work given that file path. This lays the groundwork for a future commit which will teach git-add--interactive to accept a path parameter and jump directly to the patch subcommand for that path, bypassing the interactive prompt.

2007-10-16git add -i: Fix parsing of abbreviated hunk headersJean-Luc Herren
The unified diff format allows one-line ranges to be abbreviated by omiting the size. The hunk header "@@ -10,1 +10,1 @@" can be expressed as "@@ -10 +10 @@", but this wasn't properly parsed in all cases. Such abbreviated hunk headers are generated when a one-line change (add, remove or modify) appears without context; for example because the file is a one-liner itself or because GIT_DIFF_OPTS was set to '-u0'. If the user then runs 'git add -i' and enters the 'patch' command for that file, perl complains about undefined variables.

2007-09-30git-add--interactive: Improve behavior on bogus inputJean-Luc Herren
1) Previously, any menu would cause a perl error when entered '0', which is never a valid option. 2) Entering a bogus choice (like 998 or 4-2) surprisingly caused the same behavior as if the user had just hit 'enter', which means to carry out the selected action on the selected items. Entering such bogus input is now a no-op and the sub-menu doesn't exit. Signed-off-by: Jean-Luc Herren <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-09-30git-add--interactive: Allow Ctrl-D to exitJean-Luc Herren
Hitting Ctrl-D (EOF) is a common way to exit shell-like tools. When in a sub-menu it will still behave as if an empty line had been entered, carrying out the action on the selected items and returning to the previous menu. Signed-off-by: Jean-Luc Herren <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-12-19git-add --interactiveJunio C Hamano
A script to be driven when the user says "git add --interactive" is introduced. When it is run, first it runs its internal 'status' command to show the current status, and then goes into its internactive command loop. The command loop shows the list of subcommands available, and gives a prompt "What now> ". In general, when the prompt ends with a single '>', you can pick only one of the choices given and type return, like this: *** Commands *** 1: status 2: update 3: revert 4: add untracked 5: patch 6: diff 7: quit 8: help What now> 1 You also could say "s" or "sta" or "status" above as long as the choice is unique. The main command loop has 6 subcommands (plus help and quit). * 'status' shows the change between HEAD and index (i.e. what will be committed if you say "git commit"), and between index and working tree files (i.e. what you could stage further before "git commit" using "git-add") for each path. A sample output looks like this: staged unstaged path 1: binary nothing foo.png 2: +403/-35 +1/-1 git-add--interactive.perl It shows that foo.png has differences from HEAD (but that is binary so line count cannot be shown) and there is no difference between indexed copy and the working tree version (if the working tree version were also different, 'binary' would have been shown in place of 'nothing'). The other file, git-add--interactive.perl, has 403 lines added and 35 lines deleted if you commit what is in the index, but working tree file has further modifications (one addition and one deletion). * 'update' shows the status information and gives prompt "Update>>". When the prompt ends with double '>>', you can make more than one selection, concatenated with whitespace or comma. Also you can say ranges. E.g. "2-5 7,9" to choose 2,3,4,5,7,9 from the list. You can say '*' to choose everything. What you chose are then highlighted with '*', like this: staged unstaged path 1: binary nothing foo.png * 2: +403/-35 +1/-1 git-add--interactive.perl To remove selection, prefix the input with - like this: Update>> -2 After making the selection, answer with an empty line to stage the contents of working tree files for selected paths in the index. * 'revert' has a very similar UI to 'update', and the staged information for selected paths are reverted to that of the HEAD version. Reverting new paths makes them untracked. * 'add untracked' has a very similar UI to 'update' and 'revert', and lets you add untracked paths to the index. * 'patch' lets you choose one path out of 'status' like selection. After choosing the path, it presents diff between the index and the working tree file and asks you if you want to stage the change of each hunk. You can say: y - add the change from that hunk to index n - do not add the change from that hunk to index a - add the change from that hunk and all the rest to index d - do not the change from that hunk nor any of the rest to index j - do not decide on this hunk now, and view the next undecided hunk J - do not decide on this hunk now, and view the next hunk k - do not decide on this hunk now, and view the previous undecided hunk K - do not decide on this hunk now, and view the previous hunk After deciding the fate for all hunks, if there is any hunk that was chosen, the index is updated with the selected hunks. * 'diff' lets you review what will be committed (i.e. between HEAD and index). This is still rough, but does everything except a few things I think are needed. * 'patch' should be able to allow splitting a hunk into multiple hunks. * 'patch' does not adjust the line offsets @@ -k,l +m,n @@ in the hunk header. This does not have major problem in practice, but it _should_ do the adjustment. * It does not have any explicit support for a merge in progress; it may not work at all.
