GitKraken v2.6

New and improved Fuzzy Finder. It's anything but elementary!

“You know my methods, Watson,” said Sherlock. “There was not one finder command which I did not apply to the inquiry.”

Okay, so maaaaaybe that’s not quite what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote, but Sherlock’s detective skills surely inspired the new and improved Fuzzy Finder in GitKraken version 2.6.

With this release, we’re trying something a little bit different. We’ve put together a video—and this article—to cover what’s new. Watch the video or keep reading, the choice is yours! Let us know which you prefer.

Fuzzy Finder

To bring up the improved Fuzzy Finder, use the keyboard shortcut Cmd+P for Mac or Ctrl+P for Windows and Linux.

After you’re done looking into the curious incident of the dog in the night-time, you can use the Fuzzy Finder to perform any of the following actions:

Repo:

  • Init
  • Open
  • Open in file manager
  • Clone

Settings:

  • General
  • Git Config
  • Authentication
  • GitFlow
  • UI Preferences

View:

  • Toggle Left Panel
  • Increase Zoom
  • Decrease Zoom
  • Reset Zoom
  • Keyboard Shortcuts

History:

  • History + filename

The Fuzzy Finder has replaced the Command Palette; however, the old keyboard shortcuts Cmd+Shift+P for Mac and Ctrl+Shift+P for Windows and Linux, will still bring up the Fuzzy Finder.

The actions listed below were previously performed through the Command Palette, but can now be performed using the Fuzzy Finder:

Core:

  • Undo
  • Redo

File:

  • Stage all changes
  • Unstage all changes
  • Discard all changes

Stash:

  • Create
  • Pop
  • Apply

Branch:

  • Create
  • Fetch

Checkout:

  • Checkout + branch name

Additionally, if you click the search box in the upper right corner—or use the keyboard short Cmd+F for Mac / Ctrl+F for Windows and Linux—it will search through commits by default.

#GitKrakenTip: Use the Cmd+backspace / Ctrl+backspace shortcut to quickly clear out any searches or filters.

Other Updates

GitKraken will now politely inform you when you have an external rebase in progress. GitKraken will show this message and temporarily lock parts of the application until the external rebase has finished. You can still resolve conflicts from inside GitKraken at each step of the external rebase.

Lastly, we updated the macOS title bar color for both dark and light themes.

As Sherlock once sarcastically put it, “The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.” We hope our Fuzzy Finder helps put things in plain sight so that you need not have Holmes’ mind to perform actions that are quite elementary.
