Gitfox Extension provides a command to open the current workspace's git repository in Gitfox.


Gitfox Extensions relies on GitFox and its Command Line Utilities being installed. Follow these steps:

  1. Open
  2. Navigate to Gitfox → Preferences via the menu bar
  3. Go to the Integration tab
  4. Under Command Line Utility click Install. You may be prompted for your mac's login for permission to install the binary.


Select Extensions → Open in Gitfox or open the command pallet and type Open in Gitfox. If you don't have Gitfox's Command Line Utilities installed, you will be prompted to do so.


Gitfox Extension uses:

  • process is used to locate and run the gitfox binary which lets it open repositories
  • filesystem/readonly is used to check your current workspace is a git repository and validate custom gitfox paths if you set one in configuration.


You can specify a custom path for the gitfox binary if you like. To do this, open up Extensions → Extension Library... then select Gitfox's Preferences tab and enter your custom path. Gitfox Extension will check the binary is executable for running it.
