Usage

Activation

After compiling and/or installing GeanyVC, start Geany and go to menu Tools->Plugin Manager and activate the checkbox at GeanyVC.

Configuration

Using Geany's plugin configuration dialog, you can change some options of behavior of plugin.

Change flag for document tabs created with pluging

If this option is activated, every new by the GeanyVC created document tab will be marked as changed. This will cause Geany to ask you whether you want to save when closing the document.

Even thus this option is useful in some cases, it could cause a big number of sometimes annoying "Do you want to save"-dialogs.

Confirm adding new files to a VCS

Shows a confirmation dialog on adding a new (created) file to VCS. If not set you will not see dialog "Do you want to add <file>?" and GeanyVC will add the file without any further questioning.

Maximize commit dialog

If this option is activated, commit dialog will fit the full size of your monitor. If it is not set commit dialog size will be 700x500.

Use external diff viewer

If this option is activated and you have meld, kompare, kdiff3, diffuse or tkdiff available from command line, one of these program will be used to show differences for "Diff From Current File" command.

Enable CVS/GIT/SVN/SVK/Bazaar/Mercurial

GeanyVC detects if opened file is in version control by checking directories and executing commands from version control systems toolchain. These options disable checking for particular version control system.

Disabling not required ones can speed up things. So it is recommended to activate e.g. svk only if you want to use it.
