GitLens is an open-source extension for Visual Studio Code created by me, Eric Amodio. While GitLens is generously offered to everyone free of charge, if you find it useful please consider supporting it.

GitLens simply helps you understand code better. Quickly glimpse into whom, why, and when a line or code block was changed. Jump back through history to gain further insights as to how and why the code evolved. Explore the history and evolution of a codebase.

I've been building GitLens in my spare time (read: trading sleep for time) for almost 2 years now. From its very humble beginnings, GitLens has grown wildly beyond my expectations — in both its reach as well as its demands on my time and attention. While I enjoy giving my free time and attention to GitLens' development and growth, I would like to do even more.

To my incredible backers — thank you so much for your contributions. I am truly humbled by your generosity and support. Please know that your support plays a important role in helping me realize GitLens' potential in making developer's lives easier.

❤ Thank you so much for your support! 


GitLens Features

Here are just some of the features that GitLens provides,
  • a GitLens explorer to navigate and explore repositories or file histories
  • an on-demand GitLens Results view to explore commit searches, visualize comparisons between branches, tags, commits, and more
  • authorship code lens showing the most recent commit and # of authors to the top of files and/or on code blocks
  • an unobtrusive current line blame annotation at the end of the line
  • on-demand gutter blame annotations, including a heatmap, for the whole file
  • detailed blame information accessible via hovers
  • on-demand recent changes annotations to highlight lines changed by the most recent commit
  • a status bar blame annotation showing author and date for the current line
  • commit search — by message, author, filename, commit id, or code changes
  • many powerful commands for exploring commits and histories, comparing and navigating revisions, stash access, repository status, etc
  • and so much more
