    > I have often wondered why a tool that sits atop of git doesn’t exist.

    Well, some software like SourceTree allows making certain workflows, like Gitflow easier: and

    Of course, that workflow is now considered a bit dated at this point and is only good for some projects, as a way to manage their complexities.

    Now, my memory might be failing me, but i actually recall GitKraken having a lot of nice functionality, like being able to get rid of bad branch merges with ctrl+z, much like one would undo a bad text edit in other software, which seemed really intuitive and functional:

    Personally i'm only aware of such small, yet nice improvements in the GUI space, like how GitHub Desktop also attempted simplifying working with Git (within their platform) somewhat:

    I guess that perhaps a larger amount of people who use the Git CLI are okay with it or just tolerate, rather than the ones in the Git UI app space, where new apps pop up every now and then?

  • diff2html

    Pretty diff to html javascript library (diff2html)

    My favorite git-related thing is `diff2html` so I set up an alias `diff` which will open the browser and show me all the changes I've made to the branch:

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
