Git Client Add-on

An add-on is available that contributes a built-in Git client directly in Oxygen XML Editor. Once the add-on is installed, a Git Staging view is available that includes various actions that perform common Git commands, such as push, pull, change branch, commit, and more. It also includes a built-in tool for comparing and merging changes.

To install the add-on, follow this procedure:
  1. Go to Help > Install new add-ons to open an add-on selection dialog box. Enter or paste https://www.oxygenxml.com/InstData/Addons/default/updateSite.xml in the Show add-ons from field or select it from the drop-down menu.
  2. Select the Git Client add-on and click Next.
  3. Read the end-user license agreement. Then select the I accept all terms of the end-user license agreement option and click Finish.
  4. Restart the application.

Result: The Git Staging view is now available.

To open the view, select Git Staging from the Window > Show View menu (or select Git Client from the Tools menu). If this is your first time opening the view, Oxygen XML Editor will present a dialog box asking if you want to install it. Once installed, you need to restart Oxygen XML Editor and the Git Staging view becomes available.
