Limiting the number of commits loaded


For large repositories, like the linux kernel, sublime merge tends to stall (especially on rebasing / editing commit messages). I noticed that other tools like gitk have a mode where one can limit the number of commits loaded:

gitk -n 1000

Is there something similar in Sublime merge as well? As of now, the UI is quite unusable for large repositories.

PS: I am running the latest version of sublime merge.



It looks like we’re hitting an edge case somewhere with the linux repository where it doesn’t load the whole history. Similarly sized projects (eg chromium) don’t exhibit the same behavior.



I’ve fixed the performance issues seen with the linux kernel for the next release. Previously initially loading the commits would take 88s and updates would take 26s on my machine, now it loads in 7s and updates take ~300ms.
