The market is finally taking off.
While GUIs for Git have been around for a long time, they have never really offered all the features and ease of use of a “proper” GUI – they always felt like a stop-gap – and it was easier to stick to the command line. But times are changing. Git is increasingly popular, thanks in no small part to GitHub, and over the past few months I have been testing some of the new Mac GUIs for Git. They are much more mature and finally offer a viable alternative to the command line. While the jury is still out on which will become my workhorse, I thought I’d just share the frontrunners with you, especially as they can be harder to track down than more established software.
