rhubarb.vim: GitHub extension for fugitive.vim
If fugitive.vim is the Git, rhubarb.vim is the Hub. Here's the full list of features:
:GBrowsefrom 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 #123remarks slightly easier than copying and pasting from the browser.
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.,
:GBrowsedoesn't need it). Generate a personal access token with repo permissions and add it to your
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']
How do I turn off that preview window that shows the issue body?
Support was dropped partially because GitHub CLI appears to be unseating it as the preferred GitHub command line solution, and partly because
hubisn'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
:Git hub pull-request, for example.
