Contributors list

rhubarb.vim

If fugitive.vim is the Git, rhubarb.vim is the Hub. Here's the full list of features:

  • Enables

    :GBrowse
    from fugitive.vim to open GitHub URLs.
  • In commit messages, GitHub issues, issue URLs, and collaborators can be omni-completed (

    , see 
    :help compl-omni
    ). This makes inserting those
    Closes #123
    remarks slightly easier than copying and pasting from the browser.

Installation

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone https://github.com/tpope/vim-rhubarb.git
vim -u NONE -c "helptags vim-rhubarb/doc" -c q

You'll also need fugitive.vim.

Curl (included with macOS) is required for features that use the GitHub API (i.e.,

:GBrowse
doesn't need it). Generate a personal access token with repo permissions and add it to your
.netrc
:
echo 'machine api.github.com login  password ' >> ~/.netrc

If you are using GitHub Enterprise, repeat this step for each domain (omit the

api.
portion). You'll also need to tell Rhubarb the root URLs:
let g:github_enterprise_urls = ['https://example.com']

FAQ

How do I turn off that preview window that shows the issue body?

set completeopt-=preview

What happened to the support for

hub
?

Support was dropped partially because GitHub CLI appears to be unseating it as the preferred GitHub command line solution, and partly because

hub
isn't quite a perfect drop-in replacement for
git
, making life more difficult for Fugitive. My recommended solution is to call it via a Git alias:
git config --global alias.hub '!hub'

This will let you call

hub pull-request
via
:Git hub pull-request
, for example.
