Git with Notepad++

I am sure all developers love git and notepad++ as a editor. When you are doing web development on windows, its boring to go to the git bash to commit your files. But, there is a convenient way to commit files from notepad++ itself.

Here are a few steps to use git and commit your files from Notepad++:

  • Download and install Tortoise Git
  • Download and install mysysgit
  • Download the dll file for git on notepad++ from here
  • Drop the .dll file into the plugins folder of notepad++
  • One thing to make sure, you must already have committed repo in your computer
  • So next time whenever you commit from notepad++, it can recognize the file structure and all you got to do is to enter username and password
  • Open Notepad++, Plugins -> Git -> Commit File
  • Put your commit message and rest is simple (username and password)

Done 🙂


# About Git:

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient staging areas, and multiple workflows.


# About Notepad++ :

Notepad++ is a free (as in “free speech” and also as in “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License. Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.



Good luck .
