NAME

       git-cola - A highly caffeinated git GUI

SYNOPSIS

       git cola [options]

DESCRIPTION

       git-cola is a powerful git GUI written in Python. It has many unique features that make
       git’s advanced features simple and accessible.

       See below for a full list of options and usage information.

OPTIONS

       --classic
           Launch the standalone cola classic tool.

       -g, --git-path
           Specifies the path to the git binary.

       --prompt
           Prompt for a git repository instead of auto-detecting it in the current directory.

       -r, --repo=<path>
           Run git-cola on the git repository in <path>. Defaults to the current directory.

       -s, --style=<style>
           Launch git-cola with a different stylesheet.

       -v, --version
           Print the git-cola version and exit.

GUI STYLES

       git-cola ships with an alternate "dark" stylesheet. Specify --style=dark or provide an
       external stylesheet with --style=PATH.

CONFIG VARIABLES

       cola.classicdockable
           Whether to create a dock widget with the Cola Classic tool. Defaults to false to
           speedup startup time.

       gui.diffcontext
           The number of diff context lines used and displayed by git-cola

       gui.editor
           The default text editor is controlled by gui.editor. The config variable overrides the
           EDITOR environment variable.

           The default diff tool to use.

           Your email address to be recorded in any newly created commits. Can be overridden by
           the GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL, GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL, and EMAIL environment variables. See
           linkgit:git-commit-tree[1].

       user.name
           Your full name to be recorded in any newly created commits. Can be overridden by the
           GIT_AUTHOR_NAME and GIT_COMMITTER_NAME environment variables. See

       See linkgit:git-config[1] for more details.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       EDITOR
           Specifies the default editor to use. This is ignored when the git config variable
           gui.editor is defined.

       GIT_PYTHON_TRACE
           When defined, prints git commands and status to the terminal. Print more information
           when set to the value full.

       GIT_COLA_TRACE
           When defined, git-cola outputs the git commands it executes into the Command Output
           log viewer.

SOURCE

       A git-cola development repository can be obtained via git:

           git clone git://github.com/davvid/git-cola.git

GUI THEMES

       git-cola ships with an alternative stylesheet called dark. You can use this stylesheet by
       running git cola --style=dark.

       You can also skin git-cola by providing your own Qt stylesheet. E.g. git cola
       --style=/path/to/style.qss.

       Built-in styles can be found in /usr/share/git-cola/styles.

GIT
