How to browse repository history?

Tracking changes on repository timeline

What you need to know:

  • Click on a revision number to browse files in that revision
  • Colored dots represent added (green), modified (orange) and deleted (red) files. Hover mouse over the dots for detailed info
  • Click the blue button to change the currently viewed branch

Tracking changes on activity stream

  1. Go to Activity to display the stream of events
  2. Click Filters & Options -> Source to narrow the activity to events in the repo only

You can also activate the stream from Dashboard to display events in all your projects.

  • History shows commits and is a visual representation of the git log command
  • Activity displays the history of pushes to the repository + creation of branches and tags and merge requests
