Following commands are available on tig launched from tig-explorer ``` e, : edit on existing tab : edit on new tab : edit with vsplit window : edit with split window
o: open with commit on existing tab t: open with commit on new tab v: open with commit with vsplit window s: open with commit with split window ```
When a commit is available (in main, blame, tree, refs view) view, the version of the file corresponding to this commit will be open instead of the version in the working directory. Split versions will open the two buffer in diff mode.
Following keymap is defined as defaut
let g:tig_explorer_keymap_edit = '' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_tabedit = '' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_split = '' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_vsplit = ''
let g:tig_explorer_keymap_commit_edit = 'o' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_commit_tabedit = 't' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_commit_split = 's' let g:tig_explorer_keymap_commit_vsplit = 'v'
Add following script to ~/.vimrc
" open tig with current file nnoremap T :TigOpenCurrentFile
" open tig with Project root path nnoremap t :TigOpenProjectRootDir
" open tig grep nnoremap g :TigGrep
" resume from last grep nnoremap r :TigGrepResume
" open tig grep with the selected word vnoremap g y:TigGrep"
" open tig grep with the word under the cursor nnoremap cg ::TigGrep
" open tig blame with current file nnoremap b :TigBlame
By default tig-explorer will use the builtin terminal if available. To force launching tig-explorer as shell command you can add the following to ~/.vimrc
" don't use builtin terminal let g:tig_explorer_use_builtin_term=0
