gitg — Git repository viewer


gitg [options] [repository] [<refspec>]


gitg is a graphical user interface for git. It aims at being a small, fast and convenient tool to visualize the history of git repositories. Besides visualization, gitg also provides several utilities to manage your repository and commit your work.


Open gitg in commit view
Show the help message

[repository] Load the repository at repository in gitg. If unspecified, gitg will try to open the repository at the current working directory

[<refspec>] Populate the history view of gitg using the specified <refspec> which has the same format as used with git log (Example: gitg --left-right HEAD..FETCH_HEAD)
