You can check if you have the command in your PATH by running the below command(s) and replacing <editor> with either code | code-insiders | atom | subl | codium | fleet | zed. If you do not have the command in your PATH, you can add it by following the instructions given by the editor’s documentation.

Check if code is in PATH

RelaGit comes with an option to credit RelaGit client as the committer (not author!) of your commits. This helps us to get more visibility and doesn’t impact your git history.

If you want to enable this feature, you can head over to settings ⌘, in RelaGit and enable the Annotate Commits option under the Commits tab.
