Description Christian Lenz 2015-06-24 12:07:55 UTC
I have a big php project with templates and a lot of folders and so on. It would be very nice to have a context menu entry inside the VCS window for changes, for me Git, to upload/download/sync only files, who has changed. ATM, I have to select a folder with files and have to figure out which file has changed. An other option what I did is to select only those files which have changed, this is horrible inside a big project, because I have to scroll up and down and so on.

So I think 2 options would be nice:
A context menu inside the VCS window for changes to upload/download/sync changed files and a checkbox to only show changed files inside the upload/download/sync window, which I open when I select a project -> right click -> upload. for example.

The second may be doable, there is a private-contract API letting you know if a file is VCS modified or not:

I am not sure whether traversing the whole file tree (can be HUGE number of files) is good from performace point of view (we do not do it currently); I would definitely prefer to be able to ask VCS for "changed" files.
