Use this dialog to configure certain options of your repository or make
these settings globally by selecting the “Remember as default” checkbox.
The effective values are displayed - they can be configured for your
<repository>/.git/config) or globally (
User & Encoding
Configure your name and email address to identify who created the commits.
Here you can also configure the text encoding SmartGit should assume when viewing or editing text files, e.g. with the Compare, Index Editor or Conflict Solver.
UTF-8 with BOM, UTF-16 with BOM are detected automatically. Files with UTF-8 and without BOM are likely to be automatically detected from the content.
With these settings you can configure whether to delete obsolete remote branches or how to handle submodules when pulling.
Configure what should happen with submodules if you push a submodule change.
Configure the GPG program and your signing key to Sign Tags and Commits.
You need to ensure the specified GPG program is configured to use an agent that can ask you for your key’s passphrase using a GUI.
Otherwise you may get a gpg error “cannot open tty `/dev/tty’: Device not configured”.
Tag-Grouping specifies how tags (or more general: refs) will be grouped together. This grouping:
- allows a more compact display of a range of tags in the Log Graph
- introduces additional “group”-nodes in the Branches view
- adds Closest Tags category to the Commit view
For details on how tag-grouping patterns are specified, however over the blue markers.
SmartGit supports other options either in
gui.prefixAddBranch: this value defines the default prefix in the
Branch | Add Branch dialog
gui.prefixStartFeature: this value defines the default prefix in the
Branch | Git-Flow | Start Feature dialog
