I want three features in my GIT GUI

Posted at — Jul 1, 2012

I just read an article where the author suggested that GIT GUIs were bad and that the command was the best way to go. Then in response to the first comment that “tower was good” the author agreed.Distributed reversion control (DVCS) is non-trivial for the programmers, librarians and builders. It seems to be better than the alternatives like subversion or CVS and so much better than RCS. That said I have to argue that there is so much rich information in the application that the console is just not capable of displaying everything in a nice way.So, I want three features in my GIT GUI:(1) GUI-like visualization of the output from and command(2) time series-like reporting(3) a command line with good auto-complete
