It takes very long to show branch history

See original GitHub issue

VSCode version 1.19.2 Architecture x64 Windows 10 PRO

Hi! I cannot believe that I have an issue so bold that no one else reports - maybe I am missing something?

After calling Git: View History (git log) a Git History (branch) tab appears with Loading... on it but it does not populate with history. See:


After short examination i can see:

git log --full-history --format=<format> --date-order --decorate=full --skip=0 --max-count=100 master

in OUTPUT/Git History. Further examination shows that --format=<format> seems to be the problem. When executed in terminal:

git log --full-history --format=<format> --date-order --decorate=full --skip=0 --max-count=100 master
fatal: invalid --pretty format: <format>

Am I doing something wrong (no gitHistory setting is changed from default in user/workspace settings)?

  • I did exactly this. I mean all the times are measured in VSCode’s terminal after having workspace opened then copied the results.

  • I have done the test with invalidating the find command. I have answered to this above: “After invalidating the find command history pops instantly.”

Seems that find is the problem.

Yes, it displays history much, much faster.

All that’s left is to repeat: Great extension! And getting better! Many thanks!
