Synopsis

git gui [<command>] [arguments]

Description

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.

These core tutorials will help you to learn the Git-gut. For an in-depth understanding and practical

Commands

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

browser
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.

citool
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.

version
Display the currently running version of git gui.

Examples

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.
