Legit: Git for Humans -

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

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. Defaults to current branch. Automatically stashes
and unstashes any changes.

sprout [<branch>] <new-branch>
Creates a new branch off of the specified branch. Swiches to it immediately.

harvest [<branch>] <new-branch>
Creates a new branch off of the specified branch. Swiches to it immediately.

graft <branch> <into-branch>
Auto-Merge/Rebase of specified branch into the second branch.

publish <branch>
Publishes specified branch to the remote.

unpublish <branch>
Removes specified branch from the remote.

To install the git aliases, run the following command:

$ legit install


· All remote operations are carried out by the first remote found.

· If a stash pop merge fails, Legit stops. I'd like to add checking for a merge failure,
and undo the command with friendly error reporting.

· Pip install is cumbersome to people unfamiliar with Python. Package. (Py2App +
