Sexy Git CLI, Inspired by GitHub for Mac.
GitHub for Mac is not just a Git client.
This comment on Hacker News says it best:
They haven’t re-created the git CLI tool in a GUI, they’ve created something different. They’ve created a tool that makes Git more accessible. Little things like auto-stashing when you switch branches will confuse git veterans, but it will make Git much easier to grok for newcomers because of the assumptions it makes about your Git workflow.
Why not bring this innovation back to the command line?
- Get a nice pretty list of available branches.
- sync [<branch>]
- Syncronizes the given branch. Defaults to current branch. Stash, Fetch, Auto-Merge/Rebase, Push, and Unstash. You can only sync published branches.
- switch <branch>
- Switches to specified branch. Automatically stashes and unstashes any changes.
- sprout [<branch>] <new-branch>
- Creates a new branch off of the specified branch. Swiches to it immediately.
- graft <branch> <into-branch>
- Merges specified branch into the second branch, and removes it. You can only graft unpublished branches.
- publish <branch>
- Publishes specified branch to the remote.
- unpublish <branch>
- Removes specified branch from the remote.
add & commit are also available, but you should just use git for those.
Warning: don’t use this for anything mission critical. It’s still new.
Installing Legit is easy with pip:
$ pip install legit
You’ll then have the wonderful legit command available. Run it within a repository.
