Discussion on: Git - Command line vs GUIs

I stuck to a Git GUI for a number of years, but recently switched over to the command line, and I gotta tell you, I wish I'd done it sooner.

I was able to get things done in the GUI (SourceTree, GitKraken, and others,) but I had constant merge conflicts, and otherwise got myself into difficult corners, over and over and over again.

Moving to the command line allowed me to understand what I was doing to a far greater extent, and it was actually surprisingly easy.

Anyway, I'm glad I took that step. I haven't boxed myself into one of those nasty Git corners since I gave up the GUI habit.
