Add option to stash untracked changes
ajhynes7 opened this issue · comments
Hello, thanks for building this great tool.
Sometimes I'd like to stash work which includes new files, but I couldn't find an option in lazygit to stash untracked changes.
It'd be helpful if one of the stash options was "include untracked changes".
I believe this is equivalent to the command:
git stash -u
I do believe that option is currently in
master, could you give it a spin?
It should be under the
Stash options, triggered by
S (note: uppercase) in the
Files pane by default.
You're right, I must've misremembered.
Could you explain upon what is the use case of stashing untracked changes? The only thing I can think of is that you have files of the same name on a different branch and then checking out that branch might cause conflicts, otherwise the untracked files shouldn't clash with anything.
It's not that they clash, but when I switch branches to work on something else I like to stash everything in my working directory. It keeps the work logically separated, and it prevents accidentally committing an unrelated file to a branch.
Alright, fair enough.
Would you like to take a shot at implementing it?
The rest of the subcommands were added in #1870 which you can use as a reference point, stashing untracked changes would require:
- adding a new mapping in
- adding a callback function in
If it isn't your cup of tea, feel free to let us know and someone will implement it :)
Sure I can give it a shot!
