Make sure your gitconfig file is configured. You must configure at least the and variables.

Also, the package currently favors an ssh setup that doesn't expect to be prompted for credentials in order to push/pull, .etc. Github has a guide to help you set that up here

If you are on a Windows machine, I recommend checking out this thread if you have issues pushing/pulling from a remote repository with this package. I also don't have the means to do my own user testing in a windows environment so I won't be immediately able to help troubleshoot windows problems.

Showing the Git-Plus Palette

  • Cmd-Shift-H on MacOS
  • Ctrl-Shift-H on Windows + Linux
  • Git Plus: Menu on the atom command palette.

Push/Pull/Fetch notifications

Notifications will appear in a console output above the status bar. This view can be toggled by clicking the 'git+' icon in the bottom right of the status bar.



Keeps your local repo bang up to date by automatically fetching from all remotes in the background every minute by default. But this can be set to any interval up to an hour, or disabled if you prefer. A notification can also be set to keep you informed.


Commands are accessible for keybindings by dasherizing the command title. Add your own keybindings in your ~/.atom/keymap.cson file
