Git checkout tag


Running 1.18.0

Installed plugins include: git-plus git-log gitlab

the branch dropdown on the status bar does not show any of my tag - light or annotated.

if i checkout a tag outside of atom, it will appear as the current branch and in the dropdown as tags/tagname

if i then checkout a regular branch either in atom or outside, the tags/tagname disappears from dropdown.

when supporting a production system, tags and the ability to use them is kinda important - what am I missing here?


There’s more work the team would like to do with the GitHub package but at the moment, it doesn’t look like it’s possible to checkout a tag. There’s an existing enhancement request issue that includes improved branch management in general and it looks like tag support is mentioned as well if you want to subscribe for updates:


Thanks for the reply :slight_smile:
