Which git?


Which git-package you would recommend for "real work"?
That is: not just getting SW to install, but to do co-operative SW development.
It wouldn't do exactly harm if it could handle some other kinds of repos too (hg, SVN, ...).

You mean which git frontend, right? Slackware includes git.

I like fugitive.vim for vim.

Egit for Eclipse is also not bad.

I'm not aware of git frontends that handle other repository types, and I can't imagine them being any good.

git is a general tool, egit and smartgit/hg look specialized. I would rather say you need to check if those tools suit your needs. (for example egit can help you only if you use eclipse). I suggest you to be familiar with git itself not only just with some GUI frontends. Also you can try gitk. Probably you need to check gerrit too.

I have mostly used git and git-gui (or git gui these days).
My experience with hg on the other hand is pretty limited.
I just have the itch that I might come across hg and SVN in the future (used "torture svn" however).

I'm interested in Egit, because I use eclipse often - just never tried Egit.

mercurial and subversion are indeed included in Slackware as well as git. For eclipse and netbeans see http://slackbuilds.org

Netbeans contains native support (well, via plugins) for git, svn, and hg.

There are usage patterns in git that don't map to other DVCS usage patterns.

Thanks. At the moment eclipse is closer to my heart, but netbeans might come along later.

Be sure to add git auto-completion to your shell:

For bash...

Code:
cp /usr/doc/git-1.8.4/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash /etc/bash_completion.d/.

Add to /etc/bashrc or ~/.bashrc

source /etc/bash_completion.d/git-completion.bash
Scripts also available for ksh, zsh and tcsh in /usr/doc/git...

I agree, with all those seemingly helpful tools I've always run into issues eventually and gone back to the command line. Btw, you can say "git gui" on the command line and get a graphical tool (try Repository -> Visualize HEAD's history).

It's really too bad that (AFAICT) absolutely NONE of the people that wrote (I will not say "designed") the git command line interface had the faintest idea on how to write a user interface. It looks like they fed a bunch of perl users a load of crack and told them to go at it.
