SmartGit is a powerful, yet extremely user-friendly, Git repository client for Windows. With SmartGit, you can easily access a Planio Git repository without ever having to use the command line! You can also sync a local folder with the repository hosted on Planio. SmartGit is our favorite Git client for Windows, as it includes powerful features (e.g., commit re-ordering, committing individual lines, resurrecting lost commits) coupled with easy-to-use functionality — it doesn’t bother you with underlying technical constraints. A great Git app for Windows users!
Ample Repository Functionality
SmartGit is a robust Git client with considerable functionality based on enabling developers to manage all aspects of commits. Individual lines within a file can be committed, lost commits can be resurrected, and unpushed commits can be reordered. You can easily review changes to modified and staged files, manage branches, and view a project’s history. Of course, SmartGit plays well with Planio, as it enables you to access a Planio Git repository from your Windows computer as well as syncing a local folder with a Planio-hosted repository.
The Big Picture
In addition to comprehensive functionality, SmartGit’s intuitive interface empowers users to easily manage a repository as a whole. A log window shows the history of a project and enables you to drill down into detailed changes as well as executing direct Git commands. The state of a repository can be viewed at one glance: the working tree, Git’s Index, available branches, and which commits need to be pushed. With SmartGit, there is no need to install additional tools, as it comes with a built-in SSH client, a File Compare, and 3-Way-Merge.
SmartGit is a paid app from syntevo and can be tested for free.
