GDNative Based Git Plugin for Godot Version Control Editor Plugin

Git implementation of the Godot Engine VCS interface in Godot. We use libgit2 as our backend to simulate Git in code.

Planned for the upcoming version of Godot. Look for other branches for support in other Godot releases.

Bleeding Edge Builds

This section onwards is only meant to be used by developers.

Most of the times when new featured are being worked on for the Godot VCS Integration, this requires us to make changes in Godot along with this plugin. Thus, this means we need to manually generate the GDNative API from these newer Godot builds and then use them with godot-cpp.

  1. Generate
    from Godot executable:
    godot --gdnative-generate-json-api api.json
  2. Change directory to
    cd godot-cpp
  3. Build the C++ bindings:
    scons platform= target= generate_bindings=yes bits=64 use_custom_api_file=yes custom_api_file= -j 
  4. Change directory up one level:
    cd ..
  5. Build the plugin as usual:
    scons platform= target=
