  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

  • Project mention: Hired: A Modern Take on 'Ed' | | 2024-02-13

    That’s the same as bat:[1] one of the features is syntax highlighting. Kind of unexpected to find a concatenation program… which also does that.


  • delta

    A syntax-highlighting pager for git, diff, and grep output

  • Project mention: Difftastic, a structural diff tool that understands syntax | | 2024-03-21

  • git-cliff

    A highly customizable Changelog Generator that follows Conventional Commit specifications ⛰️

  • Project mention: Getting Started with CLI tools in Rust using Clap | | 2023-12-10

    git-cliff is a terminal tool that can generate changelog from the Git history by using conventional commits, as well as by using regex-powered parsers and you can even change the changelog template itself by using a configuration file. This tool is a great example of text parsing on the terminal and also uses clap_mangen which generates man pages. Useful for anyone who is serious about looking into making a production-ready terminal tool!

    You shouldn't ever lose your work if you're using Git

  • git-branchless

    High-velocity, monorepo-scale workflow for Git

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Can we do better than Git for version control? | | 2023-12-10

    Yes, but due to its simplicity + extensibility + widespread adoption, I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re still using Git 100+ years from now.

    The current trend (most popular and IMO likely to succeed) is to make tools (“layers”) which work on top of Git, like more intuitive UI/patterns (, and smart merge resolvers (, Git it so flexible, even things that it handles terribly by default, it handles

    Yet another diff highlighting tool

  • Project mention: How to see word-diff and moved lines? | /r/git | 2023-06-13

    I use diffr since, it shows small changes in long lines nicely.

  • stgit

    Stacked Git

  • Project mention: Nobody Cares About Your Git History | | 2024-01-26

    The article seems to present a dichotomy between what the author terms a "clean" git history, which he seems to think is a history where multiple commits are squashed into single commits that contain, I guess "one feature", and the unnamed "other" way of doing it, which the author doesn't really elaborate what exactly it is, but he appears to means willy nilly uncurated commits of whatever? To me, both ways he talks about are insane.

    With something like stgit[1], it is dead easy to maintain a stack of curated, small un-squashed git-bisectable commits, and your commit history looks like the work of a supernatural genius who knows exactly what he's doing and rarely makes mistakes, and if you have to port your patches (commits) across multiple variants of the same source (think linux drivers ported to multiple distro kernels) that's easy too.
