:heavy_plus_sign: Show a diff using Vim its sign column.


Signify (or just Sy) uses the sign column to indicate added, modified and removed lines in a file that is managed by a version control system (VCS).

  • Supports git, mercurial, darcs, bazaar, subversion, cvs, rcs, fossil, accurev, perforce, tfs.
  • Asynchronous execution of VCS tools for Vim 7.4.1967+ and Neovim.
  • Preserves signs from other plugins.
  • Handles nested repositories controlled by different VCS.
  • Provides mappings for navigating hunks (“blocks of changed lines”).
  • Provides an operator that acts on hunks.
  • Alternative workflow: Disable the plugin by default and toggle it per buffer on demand.
  • Optional line highlighting.
  • Optional skipping of filetypes/filenames.
  • Optional stats in the statusline.
  • Works out of the box, but allows fine-grained configuration.
  • Great documentation and handsome maintainers!

If git is the only version control system you use, I suggest having a look at vim-gitgutter.


Use your favorite plugin manager, e.g. using vim-plug:

Plug 'mhinz/vim-signify'


  1. Understand how the plugin works: :h signify-modus-operandi
  2. Spare the plugin some work and read: :h g:signify_vcs_list


Example:signify in action
