Python Qt Git browser

Project description

pqgit (Python Qt Git)

pqgit is a graphical git browser. It shows the branches and the commit log of a repo. It also shows diffs or launches an external differ (default: meld) to do that.


pip install pqgit


When you first run pqgit, it shows a file open dialog; open the .git directory of your project. Change project with Ctrl+O.

You can select one or two commits in the history panel (diff to parent or to each other).

Double-click on some file to open the external differ.

Change branch by selecting one. Be aware that this actually does a checkout! It will not delete your working files (I hope :D), but will leave the repo on that branch. I don't like it, but that's how pygit2 behaves (at least I couldn't find out how to just display some branch without checking it out)


Not much at the moment.

To change the default diff tool, set it in ~/.config/pqgit/config.ini, like:

This project uses tabs. Please use the included .style.yapf and .pylintrc

If you want to change the UI, edit pqgit.ui with Qt Designer, then run:
