  • I don't know why so many devs avoid a GUI for Git
    Sadly TortoiseGit[1] is only available for Windows :( git-cola[2] is a decent stand-in for TG's commit review window though. [1]: [2]: - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • Suggestions for portfolio projects.
    TortoiseGit Sourcetree Git kraken Some times you need to compare to files you can do this with the notpad++ compare plugin or with Meld. Source: about 1 year ago
  • GIT GUI tool or command line?
    Instead on my PC I use TortoiseGit. Most useful for the git log (as a graph), diff with previous versions,, filter files to commit by directory and ability to exclude files from the current commit, and most of all; ease of splitting a commit for each single file into parts by ability to "restore after commit" which allows you to edit a file before the commit and have it automatically restored to the pre-commit... Source: about 1 year ago
  • TexStudio - git integration for easy committing?
    If running TeXStudio in Windows, my personal preference is to keep the automatic check-in disabled and to use the manual one (File -> SVN/git -> Check in); this allows an individual commit message with the briefer abstract line, empty line, and the longer report. Perhaps it is less exhaustive then a proper git client (in Windows e.g., tortoise), yet TeXStudio' GUI and integrated version control allows to resolve... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Git-SIM: Visually simulate Git operations in your own repos with a single termi
    > We now have a large selection of tools that allow you to visualize what's going on (I use git-kraken), as well as google for help on doing something that isn't in muscle memory. Git Kraken is excellent, though Git has a page on various GUIs, many of which are free with no restrictions: Personally, on Windows I like SourceTree: Some that have... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Committing to repositories
    The method to add the illustration to git, either from the command line, or via a GUI (for example TortoiseGit) should not have an influence how the image is managed by git itself. There is no "watermark" like stamp on the picture from which you later could tell if the picture, or the edit on the picture was committed from the CLI, or e.g., tortoise, either. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Noob question: Does anyone use things like git gui?
    I started with TortoiseGit (coming from TortoiseSVN), then used SourceTree for a while (until Atlassian broke it. I hear it is better now), but I’ve settled in GitKraken for my work stuff where I need to maintain full histories while ping-ponging code features between many branches. I’ve heard great things about GitTower too. Source: over 1 year ago
  • How can I find someone to explain
    Just use TortoiseGit (or Git Cola for Linux). You can do 90% of the stuff with them. When you have an strange case use the command line. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Where are the simple Git GUIs?
    I use mostly TortoiseGit, As easy as it gets, no Electron boilerplate, full Windows native executable. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • How do you work on the same project when you're in between two PC's in a day?
    If you're on Windows, I'd start with installing official Git. It comes with a Git Bash CLI and what not. There are also third party apps like GitExtensions and TortoiseGit if you want more UI/shell integration. Source: over 1 year ago
  • this never gets old
    I don’t know who out there needs to hear this, but you can use something like Tortoise and never have to bother with command line. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Why isn't Git working with a right click?
    Https:// is maybe what you are looking for? Or some other graphical interface like SourceTree or GitKraken? Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is There an Easier Way to Use Git/Github?
    Maybe Tortoise Git it's app that you search it's very good GUI for git. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Dangit, Git!?!
    Personally, I use TortoiseGit because it's integrated into Windows shell/explorer, so I'm basically invoking things through context menu directly in folders and files, which I have constantly open anyway. But this probably isn't for everyone - it can be finicky. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • How I created my Portfolio website using Hugo and GitHub pages?
    To start with I installed Hugo on my Windows 10 laptop (instructions here), I already had Git Bash installed, but it’s easy to install it from here. You may also choose to use a Git GUI tool like Tortoise Git. Next, I created a new Git repository at my GitHub account with the name [my-github-username] containing just a blank file (note that its necessary to name the repo this way, in order to... - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Does something like git for MS Word Exisits?
    Https:// does word diffs. It works well and I have been using it for a while editing some rather large word files. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Git makes me want to pull my hair out.
    Also, Tortoise is a really good tool, that is not too invasive with the normal workflow. (But it won't help you with rebases). Source: about 2 years ago
  • Git makes me want to pull my hair out.
    I also like - this adds right click options in Windows to Git Commit, Sync and other options. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Git makes me want to pull my hair out.
    And even though I think you should be able to using the commands of a version control system, I would still refer you to and I personally consider both tools to be among the best graphical clients for managing git repositories. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Tip: Use git to version your dungeondraft_map files
    There are many GUI programs for git that make working with it much easier. I can recommend TortoiseGit on Windows: Source: about 2 years ago
  • Why source control is important for developers ???
    Tortoise git - good UI and user friendly. - Source: / about 2 years ago
