Hg Status adds icon overlays to your Mercurial (Hg) repositories in Finder.

Hg Status tracks your Mercurial (Hg) repositories and updates the icon overlays automatically, giving you visual feedback of the current state of your working copies.

To use Hg Status, you only need to:
1. Enable “Hg Status Extension” in “System Preferences » Extensions”
2. Add a Mercurial working copy to Hg Status


Q: Is Hg Status a fully functional Mercurial client?
A: No, Hg Status is not a fully functional Mercurial client, it is designed to show the working copy status only. You still need other Mercurial clients to manage your Mercurial repositories.

Q: There is no icon overlay for the files?
A: Please make sure that you’ve enabled “Hg Status Extension” in “System Preferences » Extensions”, and also make sure that you’ve added the working copy to Hg Status. If the problem persists, please disable “Hg Status Extension” in “System Preferences » Extensions” and then enable it again. The last resort is to relaunch Finder or restart your computer.

Q: Does Hg Status work well with other Mercurial clients?
A: Yes. In theory, Hg Status works with any kinds of Mercurial clients, from the command line to the GUI apps.

Q: Does Hg Status work for file managers other than Finder?
A: Hg Status is primarily a Finder extension, so it is likely that it will not work for other file managers.
