  • Create a new repository from an existing folder
  • Clone a remote (or local) repository
  • View the revision history (log) of a repo as a table view, complete with a visual graph showing the inheritance of revisions
  • View the source tree, and the contents of files, from any past revision
  • See which files were changed, added or removed in any revision
  • Compare revisions of files, either visually with FileMerge, or as straight 'diff' output
  • Add or remove files from the local working tree
  • Commit (or revert) changed files
  • Update to a specific revision (past or present)
  • Push to or pull from remote repositories
  • Automatically detects filesystem changes made by other apps (or by the 'hg' tool) and updates the display immediately


Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
