git-gui - A portable graphical interface to Git


git gui [<command>] [arguments]


A Tcl/Tk based graphical user interface to Git. git gui focuses on allowing users to make
changes to their repository by making new commits, amending existing ones, creating
branches, performing local merges, and fetching/pushing to remote repositories.

Unlike gitk, git gui focuses on commit generation and single file annotation and does not
show project history. It does however supply menu actions to start a gitk session from
within git gui.

git gui is known to work on all popular UNIX systems, Mac OS X, and Windows (under both
Cygwin and MSYS). To the extent possible OS specific user interface guidelines are
followed, making git gui a fairly native interface for users.


Start a blame viewer on the specified file on the given version (or working directory
if not specified).

Start a tree browser showing all files in the specified commit (or HEAD by default).
Files selected through the browser are opened in the blame viewer.

Start git gui and arrange to make exactly one commit before exiting and returning to
the shell. The interface is limited to only commit actions, slightly reducing the
application’s startup time and simplifying the menubar.

Display the currently running version of git gui.


git gui blame Makefile
Show the contents of the file Makefile in the current working directory, and provide
annotations for both the original author of each line, and who moved the line to its
current location. The uncommitted file is annotated, and uncommitted changes (if any)
are explicitly attributed to Not Yet Committed.

git gui blame v0.99.8 Makefile
Show the contents of Makefile in revision v0.99.8 and provide annotations for each
line. Unlike the above example the file is read from the object database and not the
working directory.

git gui blame --line=100 Makefile
Loads annotations as described above and automatically scrolls the view to center on
line 100.

git gui citool
Make one commit and return to the shell when it is complete. This command returns a
non-zero exit code if the window was closed in any way other than by making a commit.

git gui citool --amend
Automatically enter the Amend Last Commit mode of the interface.

git gui citool --nocommit
Behave as normal citool, but instead of making a commit simply terminate with a zero
exit code. It still checks that the index does not contain any unmerged entries, so
you can use it as a GUI version of git-mergetool(1)

git citool
Same as git gui citool (above).

git gui browser maint
Show a browser for the tree of the maint branch. Files selected in the browser can be
viewed with the internal blame viewer.
