Hello,
i would like to ask for a much needed improvement that is to allow the files listed in the unstaged (and also maybe in the indexed) view to be grouped by packages by an hirarchical view.

We often have a hell lot of unstaged files by autogenerated code and backporting stuff. While the autogenerated code must not be added to the index it pollutes the unstaged area.

It is nearly impossible to reliable find the files that you want to add to index in that mess of a view. It was already annoying while only few files were in the unstaged area but it is unbearable with many ones. I wonder why till now no one ever had the idea to improve that.

So i would like to ask you maybe to add such a feature. That would make life sooooooo much easier.

Thank you!

Maybe there are two solutions:


  • Add all autogenerated files to your .gitignore file. This is applicable if your autogenerated file names follow a specific pattern or all of the autogenerated files are stored in specific directories.
  • Use Git Staging Menu -> Presentation -> Tree. This switches to a hierarchical view of the files.
