Blame support for cgit

Asked by Mihai Moldovan on 2021-05-16

As far as I can see, Launchpad uses a cgit instance for browseable git repositories.

cgit generally seems to support the blame feature nowadays (AFAIR, it didn't for a very long time), but it's disabled by default.

Would you consider setting enable-blame to 1 in cgitrc to get blame support and make browsing repositories easier?

Hi, Mihai!

Today, we use cgit 1.1, which doesn't seem to support git blame UI: v1.1 tag ( is older than the commit that seems to add blame UI (

In order to upgrade cgit, we would need to do some underlying work before, and we are heading there.

Anyway, I suggest that you open a bug report, so we remember to enable blame UI once we upgrade our cgit.

Can you help with this problem?
