  • jj

    A Git-compatible VCS that is both simple and powerful

    There's "jj", which started as a Google employee's hobby project but they put him full time on it. Not sure how much G plans to push this, but they are endorsing it at least.

    I've been using it myself lately and it's pretty cool. Takes some getting used to, but actually pretty easy to recover from screw ups, unlike git.

    Alternative Twitter front-end

    For posterity here’s [1] a list of Nitter instances. The flagship one (Nitter.net) always gets overloaded

  • git-workshop

    A gentle introduction to git, using proper storytelling.

    I have contradictory feelings regarding git. For more than ten years, I was using it daily without really understanding the internals... and I was often confused and frustrated. After investing some time learning how the Directed Acyclic Graph works, suddenly everything made much more sense.

    And, yes: it is good to learn the underlying fundamentals of the technology we are using. But, on the other hand, it denotes a rather poor abstraction from the UX point of view, imho.

    Now, when I deliver git training, I start by explaining the DAG and how there is no magic, only git. By the way, the notes and exercises of the course are in my GitHub account[1], feel free to check it out if you think it can be useful.
