Merry New Year!
I finally got far enough on my other open source project my fabulously awesome employer generously funded me to develop, and, over the holiday, put the finishing touches on a new Atom package called git-time-machine
This is something that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like in any editor. It’s primary goal is to help answer the question, “have we been here before”. After working on a big code base for a few years, I often come back to idea that’s been tried before. Or, I know this worked at some point in time X; what’s changed.
You can click directly on the time plot or popup to open that revision at the same line as the active editor.
I tried to make it compatible with light and dark themes.
Special thanks to @mark_hahn, @jakesankey and @leedohm for showing me how to do a lot of this. I don’t think we ever exchanged a word, but you spoke volumes to me in source code. Also thanks to @kevinsawicki & @nathansobo, I still think space-pen is perhaps the most brilliant idea ever and just a little less brilliant than React. mind = blown.
