Gitbox1.6.2

10 June 2013

Graphical interface for Git.

Overview

Gitbox now has a new intuitive interface that makes everyday tasks amazingly simple. In a single window you see all your repositories, history and working directory state. Commit, pull and push with a single click. Creating, sharing and comparing branches becomes so simple, you will start to actually use them.

What's new in Gitbox

Version 1.6.2:
  • Improved performance of updates of git state (stage, branches, commits and submodules).
  • Fixed bug when cloning from a URL with spaces.
  • Fixed several error messages.
  • Fixed bug with submodule paths containing spaces.
  • Fixed commit cherry-picking and merging from the search mode.
  • Fixed bug with launching FileMerge after installing Xcode 4.3 and removing /Developer folder.
  • Prevented window activation when minimized and repository optimization kicks in.
  • Fixed window activation when clicked through after closing FileMerge window.
  • Improved error messages for merge failure.
  • Gitbox on App Store has version 1.6.3 to enable installation when you already have 1.6.2 free build installed. Substantially, 1.6.3 is the same as 1.6.2.

I'm using Gitbox to to do version control of my dissertation, which I'm writing in LaTeX. All I want to do is to be able to log what I've done in a writing-session, commit the changes, and form off branches of the writing project whenever I'm making changes that I might potentially want to reverse. This is the first version control software that, for a non-programmer like me, was easy to setup and to use on my laptop. For my use, I simply wanted it to track my local files on my computer's harddrive; I have no use for an offsite repository. The fact that it comes with Git means I installed, chose my dissertation's folder that I wanted to version control, and began. It is extremely easy to use, both for committing, and for making difference comparisons between changed files. It is quick to load, it is stable, and the UI is very clean and easy to understand. Installation requires no command line or other non-Mac-like installation procedures so common with many pieces of version control software. If, like me, you want to use version control to keep track of a major writing programme, look no further. The fact that you can use it for one repository -- one writing project -- for free, is something I am grateful to the developer for.

I'm leaving a review here in hopes that the developer might dust off his programming gloves, and finally update the app. This is a little gem, which manages to put a *simple* interface to the most common, everyday git operations. It is particularly useful to developers that are new to git, and to those that use git only occasionally. Nothing better seems to have been developed in this space, and I hope the developer will keep it alive!

Great app and worth the high price. But the UI needs some work imo

This isn't free. You can use it with one repository and then you are required to enter a licence key.

As stated on the official website, it's a 64bit-only app. It doesn't even start on 32bit macs.
