Why auto-committing anything at all?
I like using Sublime Text as a buffer for:
- working with text from clipboard,
- or writing random notes in the way only I can understand
Such notes usually change a lot during a day, and I often need to find a piece of text I had in there.
This little plugin helps tracking a history of such notes automatically. It stores the history in a Git repo.
How it works?
You create new Git repo for your notes with an empty file
This way plugin knows that it should enable auto-commits for files in this repo.
Changes committed when you either: * saved a file in your Git repo, * or after you made changes to the files (in a 30 seconds delay).
Every changed file added & committed separately with commit message like:
How to use?
- Create new Git repository for your temporary files
mkdir ~/Documents/Notes cd ~/Documents/Notes git init
- Add empty file with name
.sublime-text-git-autocommitto the root folder to activate this plugin
touch .sublime-text-git-autocommit git commit -am "Commit .sublime-text-git-autocommit"
- Create one or more text files at the same folder and make your notes in them
touch TODO touch Clipboard
- All changes made via Sublime to these files will be committed automatically (nested folders ignored)
How to view history?
git log -p.
Or publish your repo as GitHub Gist and use its diff viewer.
To publish as GitHub Gist:
- Create new private Gist
- Copy git clone URL
- From the root folder of your git repo
git remote add origin https://gist.github.com/YOUR_GIST_ID_HERE.git git remote -v git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master git pull
- Push your changes to Gist manually from time-to-time
“Shift+CMD+P” -> type “Git Push” -> Enter 5. View diffs on GitHub
If you enabled GitHub's 2-Factor Authentication then you need to use access token to push to your Gist repo from command line.
I found Gist Tool helpful for this purpose.
brew install gist gist --login cat ~/.gist
Once you have your access token use it as a username when GitHub asks for credentials, leave password empty.
