When you first sign up for CodeStream, or are simply connecting a new repository to CodeStream, you may encounter one of a number of possible issues related to Git. Here’s some additional information on how to resolve those issues.
CodeStream only works with projects controlled by Git
In order to connect a repository to CodeStream it must be managed by Git, or a Git hosting service like GitHub. Make sure that you have just a single repository open in any one window in your IDE. If you need to work with multiple repositories you can open them in separate windows. Also, make sure you open an actual repository, and not a directory containing repositories.
CodeStream is unable to locate the git command
This issue is typically encountered by Windows users. Please ensure that git is in your PATH, and then restart Atom.
ID of first commit doesn’t match origin
Your access to the chat history on CodeStream for a given repository is based on two things; the URL of the origin and the first commit hash. If the origin URL matches that of a repository connected to CodeStream, but the first commit hash does not, then you won’t be able to access the chat history. Check with the rest of your team to make sure you're working against the same repository that was connected to CodeStream.
Missing remote URL
Make sure you have an remote URL configured for this repository. From the command line, do a "git remote -v" to check your remote URL.
