2010-12-03web--browse: better support for chromiumGiuseppe Bilotta
On Debian-based distributions, Chromium the browser is available under the name chromium-browser rather than chromium, to prevent conflicts with the Chromium B.S.U. game. Look for chromium-browser first when setting the path for chromium, and also add chromium-browser as a supported browser name. Document the dual-name support, and mention the dual-name support for (google-)chrome too. Signed-off-by: Giuseppe Bilotta <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Add support for google's chrome & chromium. The value of the browser is 'chromium' or 'chrome' to select it. You can always provide config variable for browser path if they are not installed in right paths. Signed-off-by: Pavan Kumar Sunkara <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Since OS X 10.6 the variable $SECURITYSESSIONID does not exist anymore, so lets look for the $TERM_PROGRAM variable as backup. Signed-off-by: Heiko Voigt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-06-01git: browsing paths with spaces when using the start commandPat Thoyts
msysGit issue 258 tracks a problem opening a browser onto file paths that contain spaces or parentheses when calling the web--browse script. This patch modifies how the start command is called to solve this. Signed-off-by: Pat Thoyts <> Signed-off-by: Steffen Prohaska <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-02-09git-web--browse: Fix check for /bin/startTodd Zullinger
The previous check in git-web--browse for /bin/start used test -n /bin/start, which was always true. This lead to "start" being tried first in the browser list. On systems with upstart installed, "start" exists and might be in the PATH, but it makes a poor choice for a web browser. Instead, test that /bin/start exists and is executable.

2008-09-24git-web--browse: Support for using /bin/start on MinGWPetr Baudis
In the future, I think we should also default to xdg-open on Linux instead of having a KDE-specific hack. This patch has been sponsored by Novartis. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2008-03-14web--browse: use custom commands defined at config timeChristian Couder
Currently "git web--browse" is restricted to a set of commands defined in the script. You can subvert the "browser.<tool>.path" to force "git web--browse" to use a different command, but if you have a command whose invocation syntax does not match one of the current tools then you would have to write a wrapper script for it. This patch adds a git config variable "browser.<tool>.cmd" which allows a more flexible browser choice. If you run "git web--browse" with -t/--tool, -b/--browser or the "web.browser" config variable set to an unrecognized tool then "git web--browse" will query the "browser.<tool>.cmd" config variable. If this variable exists, then "git web--browse" will treat the specified tool as a custom command and will use a shell eval to run the command with the URLs added as extra parameters.

2008-02-10git-web--browse: do not start the browser with nohupDmitry Potapov
There is no good reason to run GUI browsers using "nohup". It does not solve any real problem but creates annoying "nohup.out" files in every directory where git help -w is run. Signed-off-by: Dmitry Potapov <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
