This plugin highlights uncommitted changes to files tracked with Git, and allows to navigate through the hunks.


This plugin depends on libgit2, and obviously Geany (>= 1.25).


For detailed instructions, see the INSTALL file of the Geany-Plugins package this plugin is part of.


When loaded into Geany, this plugins adds markers in the markers margin. If the marker margin is not visible, they are displayed as line backgrounds.

To navigate through the hunks of the current file, you need to configure the plugin's Go to next hunk and Go to previous hunk keybindings in Geany's preferences dialog.
