I'd like to be able to see which lines in my file have been edited relative to the current git head, is there any way I can do this?

In particular, I'd like to be able to tell if a line was added or modified as I would by looking at the git diff.

  • Would a full diff be ok? If that is the case fugitive.vim's :Gdiff would be perfect. Commented Nov 4, 2015 at 19:10

gitgutter and signify are two plugins I know of which provide this sort of functionality. When a buffer is saved, the sign column is updated to show where lines have been added/modified/deleted.

gitgutter is Git specific, while signify supports multiple version control systems.

N.B., I'm a collaborator on signify.
