Git Console for Advanced Users

The Main Window Space for Workbench includes a status bar. As of version 7.1(16), this bar includes Git Console. When you select the Git Console tab, a console displays similar to the Windows Terminal application, where you can enter Git command line tasks. The Git Console gives the DiveLine Administrator an interactive experience similar to using Git on a terminal. The Git Console implementation in Workbench includes several GNU Readline keyboard shortcuts, command history, and simple auto completion. See
