Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] git-gui: revert untracked files by deleting them
Date: Thu, 07 Nov 2019 07:05:33 +0000
Message-ID: <pull.436.v2.git.1573110335.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.436.git.1572418123.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

My development environment sometimes makes automatic changes that I don't
want to keep. In some cases, this involves new files being added that I
don't want to commit or keep (but I also don't want to outright .gitignore 
forever). I have typically had to explicitly delete those files externally
to Git Gui, which is a context switch to a manual operation, and I want to
be able to just select those newly-created untracked files in the UI and
"revert" them into oblivion.

This change updates the revert_helper proc to check for untracked files as
well as changes, and then changes to be reverted and untracked files are
handled by independent blocks of code. The user is prompted independently
for untracked files, since the underlying action is fundamentally different
(rm -f). If after deleting untracked files, the directory containing them
becomes empty, then the directory is removed as well. A new proc 
delete_files takes care of actually deleting the files, using the Tcler's
Wiki recommended approach for keeping the UI responsive.

Since the checkout_index and delete_files calls are both asynchronous and
could potentially complete in any order, a "chord" is used to coordinate
unlocking the index and returning the UI to a usable state only after both
operations are complete.

This is the third revision of this change, which differs from the second
version in the following ways:

 * A new construct called a "chord" is used to coordinate the completion of
   multiple asynchronous operations that can be kicked off by revert_helper.
   A chord is, conceptually, a procedure with multiple entrypoints whose
   body only executes once all entrypoints have been activated. The 
   chord.tcl file includes comprehensive documentation of how to use the
   chord classes.
   
   
 * Since we might not yet be ready to unlock the index when checkout_index 
   returns, the _close_updateindex proc where it was ultimately unlocking
   the index has been modified so that unlocking the index is the
   responsibility of the caller. Since the $after functionality ran after 
   unlock_index, that is also hoisted out. Nothing in _close_updateindex 
   appears to be asynchronous, so the caller can simply make the calls
   itself upon its return.
   
   
 * lexists has been renamed to path_exists.
   
   
 * Up to 10 deletion errors are now shown simultaneously. I also confirmed
   that Tcl's file delete code will always return a nicely-formatted error
   including the filename, and changed the message so that it isn't also 
   injecting the filename.

     ++# SimpleChord class:
     ++#   Represents a procedure that conceptually has multiple entrypoints that must
     ++#   all be called before the procedure executes. Each entrypoint is called a
     ++#   "note". The chord is only "completed" when all the notes are "activated".
     ++#
     ++#   Constructor:
     ++#     set chord [SimpleChord new {body}]
     ++#       Creates a new chord object with the specified body script. The body
     ++#       script is evaluated at most once, when a note is activated and the
     ++#       chord has no other non-activated notes.
     ++#
     ++#   Methods:
     ++#     $chord eval {script}
     ++#       Runs the specified script in the same context (namespace) in which the
     ++#       chord body will be evaluated. This can be used to set variable values
     ++#       for the chord body to use.
     ++#
     ++#     set note [$chord add_note]
     ++#       Adds a new note to the chord, an instance of ChordNote. Raises an
     ++#       error if the chord is already completed, otherwise the chord is updated
     ++#       so that the new note must also be activated before the body is
     ++#       evaluated.

     ++# ChordNote class:
     ++#   Represents a note within a chord, providing a way to activate it. When the
     ++#   final note of the chord is activated (this can be any note in the chord,
     ++#   with all other notes already previously activated in any order), the chord's
     ++#   body is evaluated.
     ++#
     ++#   Constructor:
     ++#     Instances of ChordNote are created internally by calling add_note on
     ++#     SimpleChord objects.
     ++#
     ++#   Methods:
     ++#     [$note is_activated]
     ++#       Returns true if this note has already been activated.
     ++#
     ++#     $note
     ++#       Activates the note, if it has not already been activated, and completes
     ++#       the chord if there are no other notes awaiting activation. Subsequent
     ++#       calls will have no further effect.
