git-cola - A highly caffeinated git GUI
git cola [options]
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.
--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.
git-cola ships with an alternate "dark" stylesheet. Specify --style=dark or provide an external stylesheet with --style=PATH.
cola.savewindowsettings Whether git-cola should remember its window settings. cola.fontdiff Specifies the font to use for git-cola's diff display. 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. gui.historybrowser Specifies the history browser to use when visualizing history. diff.tool The default diff tool to use. merge.tool The default merge tool to use. user.email 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. 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 linkgit:git-commit-tree. See linkgit:git-config for more details.
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.
A git-cola development repository can be obtained via git: git clone git://github.com/davvid/git-cola.git
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.

linkgit:git-difftool Compare changes using common merge tools. linkgit:gitk The git repository browser. Shows branches, commit history and file differences. gitk is the utility started by git-cola's Repository Visualize actions.
git-cola is independently developed from the linkgit:git suite, but you can use it just like any other git command, e.g. git cola.
