Discussion on: What GIT GUI client do you use?

I use VSCode built in git + git graph. I turn on Git lens when collaborating. Was using github desktop (before rewrite) and then Gitkraken (cannot use with private repo anymore), sourcetree is just to buggy most of the time.

It's good enough for me, doesn't need extra resources
and bonus it's there inside my favorite code editor.

GUI is visual representation of what happening
git graph give me the git flow overview of all the commit
cherry pick commit line by line.
Stash / unstash when change brach easily.
Stage / unstage by line or whole file

I'm lazy to remember command after init the repo, i just want to see my code flow.

A little bit of work, to set it as diff and merge tool.
