git-gui - A portable graphical interface to Git
git gui [<command>] [arguments]
A Tcl/Tk based graphical user interface to Git. git gui focuses on
allowing users to make changes to their repository by making new
commits, amending existing ones, creating branches, performing local
merges, and fetching/pushing to remote repositories.
Unlike gitk, git gui focuses on commit generation and single file
annotation and does not show project history. It does however supply
menu actions to start a gitk session from within git gui.
git gui is known to work on all popular UNIX systems, Mac OS X, and
Windows (under both Cygwin and MSYS). To the extent possible OS
specific user interface guidelines are followed, making git gui a
fairly native interface for users.
Start a blame viewer on the specified file on the given version (or
working directory if not specified).
Start a tree browser showing all files in the specified commit (or
HEAD by default). Files selected through the browser are opened in
the blame viewer.
Start git gui and arrange to make exactly one commit before exiting
and returning to the shell. The interface is limited to only commit
actions, slightly reducing the application’s startup time and
simplifying the menubar.
Display the currently running version of git gui.
git gui blame Makefile
Show the contents of the file Makefile in the current working
directory, and provide annotations for both the original author of
each line, and who moved the line to its current location. The
uncommitted file is annotated, and uncommitted changes (if any) are
explicitly attributed to Not Yet Committed.
git gui blame v0.99.8 Makefile
Show the contents of Makefile in revision v0.99.8 and provide
annotations for each line. Unlike the above example the file is
read from the object database and not the working directory.
git gui blame --line=100 Makefile
Loads annotations as described above and automatically scrolls the
view to center on line 100.
git gui citool
Make one commit and return to the shell when it is complete. This
command returns a non-zero exit code if the window was closed in
any way other than by making a commit.
git gui citool --amend
Automatically enter the Amend Last Commit mode of the interface.
git gui citool --nocommit
Behave as normal citool, but instead of making a commit simply
terminate with a zero exit code. It still checks that the index
does not contain any unmerged entries, so you can use it as a GUI
version of git-mergetool(1)
Same as git gui citool (above).
git gui browser maint
Show a browser for the tree of the maint branch. Files selected in
the browser can be viewed with the internal blame viewer.
The git repository browser. Shows branches, commit history and file
differences. gitk is the utility started by git gui's Repository
git gui is actually maintained as an independent project, but stable
versions are distributed as part of the Git suite for the convenience
of end users.
A git gui development repository can be obtained from:
git clone git://repo.or.cz/git-gui.git
git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/git-gui.git
