A terminal-based GUI client for Git

Project Description

Features

Giterm is a ncurses-based terminal GUI for Git. It brings information about the current status of your Git working copy right in your terminal, real-time.

It exposes in a single view:

  • local branches, and which branch you’re currently on
  • remote branches, and which branch the current local branch is tracking
  • commit history, and which commit you are currently working from
  • current changes
  • a diff view of the selected file in the changes list

Real-time!

Every change to the working copy (file edition/move or any Git command) updates the GUI instantly. You can work as usual, and keep a terminal open with giterm to get instant feedback on your actions.

Note

Giterm essentially shows Git information. It does not support git actions like commit, checkout, branch switching, committing. Only staging/unstaging is supported at this time.

Installation

pip install giterm

If you don’t have pip installed yet:

curl -s https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py | sudo python
pip install giterm

Note

Windows users beware, Python for Windows doesn’t come with curses. You need to visit curses repository, download the version of curses that corresponds to your Windows and version of Python, and then pip install the whl file with the python you plan on using.

Usage

cd path/to/git/working/copy
giterm

Requirements

Giterm needs the git executable to be installed and available in the PATH of your system. Others dependencies should be automatically handled by pip.

Technical background

Giterm uses subprocesses to call Git shell-based commands, and parses their outputs to bring the relevant information to the user interface.

It also uses a watchdog to listen file changes in the current working directory.
