VS Code Git Worktrees
A Wrapper for Git Worktree Operations that provides an interactive API so developers can have a better experience.
Purpose of the extension
After creating a ZSH plugin that was responsible for wrapping up my daily git operations(zsh-git-fzf), I found myself very often switching between the terminal and my main Editor(VS Code). So I decided to create an extension for my main Editor that would help me avoid switching between them and keep everything in one tool.
This project supports multiple workspaces, allowing users to organize and manage their projects in separate spaces. If you have opened more than one project, you will be asked to select the workspace in which you want to run the operation. If you have only one project opened, it will be selected as the default workspace.
To select a workspace, simply choose from the list of available workspaces when prompted. Once you've made your selection, the operation will be executed within the chosen workspace.
git worktree add [remote-branch] [new-branch]
Create a new worktree
If you do not select a new branch(
ESC), you will create a new worktree with the remote branch you typed. This was made for convenience, instead of having
git worktree add master master, you can just run
git worktree add master.
Since the name of the worktree and branch is the same, we validate the user's new-branch input(Relevant issue)
git worktree list
Display all worktrees and switch between them
