This is a collection of proof-of-concept Mercurial extensions written at Facebook. While they are all in basic use, they are considered experimental, are unsupported, and may or may not receive updates in the future. We're making them open source as examples of some better workflows we've been experimenting with.

Note that there will be extensions included here that only work with Facebook's infrastructure; they are included to give you an idea of how we integrate mercurial with our workflows.


An extension that adds the 'hg smartlog' command. It prints graph log output containing only the commits relevant to yourself. Shows your bookmarks, the @ or master bookmark, and any draft commits without bookmarks that you've made within the past 2 weeks. Any commits in the graph that are skipped are represented by '...'.

We recommend also having an 'hg sl' alias that gives more concise output: --template "{shortest(node)}  {author|user}  {bookmarks % '{ifeq(bookmark, current, label(\"yellow\", \" {bookmark}*\"), label(\"green\", \" {bookmark}\"))}'} {ifeq(branch, 'default', '', label(\"bold\", branch))}\n{desc|firstline}\n\n"


An extension that adds the 'hg githelp' command. It translates Git commands into Mercurial commands. Example:

$ hg githelp -- git rebase origin/master
  hg rebase -d master

$ hg githelp -- reset --hard HEAD^
  hg strip -r .

So it acts as a useful cheat sheet tool for people moving from Git to Mercurial.


An extension that adds the 'hg backups' command. 'hg backups' prints a list of recently deleted commits (by reading your .hg/strip-backups directory) and allows you to recover a commit by doing 'hg backups --recover '. It prints the missing commits in reverse chronological order, and acts as a pseudo-replacement for Git's reflog.


An extension that adds the 'hg amend --rebase' command. When working with a stack of commits, it's currently impossible to amend a commit in the middle of the stack. This extension enables that ability, adds a 'hg amend' command that invokes 'hg commit --amend', and adds a --rebase flag to 'hg amend --rebase' that rebase all the children of the commit onto the newly amended version.

If 'hg amend' is run on a commit in the middle of a stack without using --rebase, the amend succeeds and the old version of the commit is left behind with a marker bookmark on it 'bookmarkname(preamend)'. The user can then run 'hg amend --fixup' to post-humously rebase the children onto the new version of the commit.


An interactive ncurses interface to histedit.

NOTE: This requires python-curses installed and Mercurial's histedit extension enabled.

This extensions allows you to interactively move around changesets or change the action to perform while keeping track of possible conflicts.


Upgrades manifests to generaldelta in-place, without needing to reclone.


Patches are welcome as pull requests, though they will be collapsed and rebased to maintain a linear history.

We (Facebook) have to ask for a "Contributor License Agreement" from someone who sends in a patch or code that we want to include in the codebase. This is a legal requirement; a similar situation applies to Apache and other ASF projects.

If we ask you to fill out a CLA we'll direct you to our online CLA page where you can complete it easily. We use the same form as the Apache CLA so that friction is minimal.
