Introducing GitLens+ Features

Sign up for GitLens+ to unlock powerful additional features like Worktrees and Visual File History – with more coming soon! It’s completely free to create your account, which enables you to utilize GitLens+ features with public repos indefinitely and private repos during your automatic 7-day trial of GitLens+ Pro. After your Pro trial, your account will enable you to upgrade to a paid plan if you’d like, or you can simply continue using GitLens+ features with public repos for free. 

The introduction of GitLens+ features has no impact on existing GitLens features. You’re not losing access to any of the features you know and love. In fact, more core features will continue to be added to GitLens. Signing up for GitLens+ simply gives you access to certain additional features that enable you to get even more out of Git in VS Code!

Working with private repos? See paid plans

New GitLens+ Features


Create Worktrees that allow multiple branches to be checked-out at once on the same repository. This makes it easier to develop on, or test multiple branches, by minimizing the context switching between branches.

Visual File History

Clearly see the history of a file, including: when changes were made, how large they were, and who made them. Authors who have contributed changes to a file are on the y-axis, and dates on the x-axis. Color-coded dots represent points in time where that author made changes to the file, and vertical lines represent the magnitude of the change in two colors: green for lines added, and red for lines removed.

GitLab Self-Managed Integration

With a paid GitLens+ plan, GitLab Self-Managed users can see GitLab avatars for commit authors, richer details for auto-linked issues and merge requests, as well as merge requests associated with commits and branches.

More Coming Soon

You can expect more GitLens+ features like the GitKraken commit graph, which will help you visualize branch structure and commit history. It not only helps verify your recent Git actions on the repo, but also shows who made what code changes and when.

Use GitLens+ Features with Private Repos

When you sign up for GitLens+, it includes a 7-day free trial of GitLens+ Pro. After your trial, you can choose to upgrade to a paid plan to continue using GitLens+ features with private repositories. You’ll also get priority email support, and soon, more features and capabilities to enable greater team productivity and collaboration. Stay tuned!

What are GitLens+ features?

Initially, in GitLens 12 we introduced new GitLens+ features that include Worktrees and Visual File History. But we have tons of new visualization and collaboration features in the pipeline, like the GitKraken commit graph, which is coming soon!

What is GitLens+?

GitLens+ is a set of exciting new visualization and code collaboration capabilities designed to help devs code faster and more efficiently solo or as a team. Signing up for GitLens+ unlocks these additional features that can be used indefinitely with public repositories. You’ll also be able to test drive GitLens+ features with private repos as part of your automatic 7-day free trial of GitLens+ Pro.

Is GitLens still free?

Yes, GitLens is free. All core features will continue to be free without an account. In fact, we’re still adding many core features to GitLens. GitLens+ features are purely additive and provide a richer, more powerful experience.
