GitKraken, what is it? and common actions?


Git is a free and open source distributed version control system for software development and several other version control tasks. It enables everything from small to very large projects with speed, efficiency data integrity.

You can primarily use/manage Git on the command line, however, there are several graphical user interfaces (GUI) Git clients, which one of them is GitKraken.

What is it?

it is a GUI Git client that facilitates efficient and reliable usage of Git on a desktop and offer most of the command line operations.

Visit Homepage:

Gitkraken helps a Git client's efficiency through these features:

  • Built-in merge tool
  • Integrates with a user’s GitHub or Bitbucket account, GitLab
  • Supports single-click undo and redo functions
  • Easily adapts to a user’s workspace and also supports submodules and Gitflow
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Git Hooks Support
  • Interactive Rebase
  • Gitflow Support
  • Commit signing, etc

common actions?

  • Undo
  • Redo
  • Pull
  • Push
  • Branch
  • Stash
  • Pop Stash, etc

NB: These are on the toolbars and just single click.

Are you still thinking on the best GUI Git Client that will help you from cloning your repository to successfully executing Git actions?
I'd recommend GitKraken 100%.

I tried it after years of using free tortoiseGit, but gitkraken not mature aplication yet. I think it will be maybe after next six versions. E.g. bugs in open conflict resolver, aplication always starts in new instance and many small things which not increase my productivity...and they want to paymany for problem, but they must bring something like diamond not this pice of something which looks good but freeware whit poor ui makes things better
