See the git commands that are executed by the EGit GUI? [message #1602797] Thu, 05 February 2015 20:26 Go to next message

I am wondering if there is a way to see which git commands are being executed as a result of my clics in the EGit plugin's views.

The line of thinking is similar to an Eclipse pluging called "MouseFeed" which gives you a popup to show you the keyboard shortcut for the actions you take, so when you right click and select refactor\rename, it'll popup with <shift><alt><r>

Even if it's just a log file that I can tail in another window that would be helpful.

No, this isn't available.

EGit is not based on the C implementation of Git but uses JGit's Java API. Only the high-level part of
this API can be mapped to the corresponding git command line commands.

JGit is going to introduce logging soon [1], this could be used to provide a log of git actions also in EGit.
