Suppose I have the following text in my vim buffer:
This is a commit msg.
Suppose further I have a git repo located at
Goal: Make a vim script so that I can highlight the text above, and have it sent as a git commit message within
~/my_repo. It would look something like
It would also have auto-complete on its repo argument.
First, the autocomplete function (AFAIK I think this is OK?):
function! GitLocations() return find $HOME -name '.git' -printf '%h\n' "generates a list of all folders which contain a .git dir endfunction
Next, the actual git commit function, which is incomplete:
function! CommitTextGitRepo(l1, l2, loc) let s:msg = ??? " how do I make this the highlighted text from line l1 to line l2? execute '!cd ' . a:loc . '&& git commit --allow-empty -m \"' . s:msg '\"' endfunction
Assuming I can figure out how to get
CommitTextGitRepo() working above, the final thing I would need is this (I think):
command! -nargs=* -complete=custom,GitLocations -range Commit call CommitToGitRepo(<line1>, <line2>, <q-args>)
I'm so close. How do I finish this up? :)
