In attempt to create a new git flow Feature branch in sourcetree, I get the following error 'fatal: Not a gitflow-enabled repo yet. Please run "git flow init" first.'
I am using the embedded Git (version 188.8.131.52). How do I run "git flow init" via the embedded version of Git?
If it helps, here is my .git/config
[core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true ignorecase = true [remote "origin"] fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* url = http://XXXX.git [gitflow "branch"] master = master develop = develop [gitflow "prefix"] feature = feature/ release = release/ hotfix = hotfix/ support = support/ versiontag = [branch "develop"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/develop
I have worked this out now.
The problem was that I had removed the master branch from my local repository, so git flow was presumably looking for it. Upon not finding it, it thought git flow was not initialised.
It would have been good if it gave me a slightly less cryptic message though...
Yes git-flow does rely heavily on your branch names. This is very important. The error message you would've received wouldn't have been from us but would have been from git-flow itself. We can't predict what git-flow reports as this could change at any time.
Glad you've got it working
