Gity, a Git client for OS X

Since we started working on Get Apps Done, I had to deal with Git. I never used Git before that, but Heroku, a great platform for hosting Ruby on Rails projects, forced me to. Using Git isn’t too complex, but when you start getting errors or merging problems, then a nice interface would be very helpful. The first client I tried was Git GUI, not really an eye candy but it was getting the job done, but still it didn’t offered me a nice and clear interface for Git. GitX, another Mac OS X Git client, was definitely a great UI improvement, but it was somehow incomplete for what I needed. Finally I recently discovered Gity, in my opinion, a very well done Mac OS X client. The interface is very Apple-ish, and it makes easier to solve problem even for a designer like me. While it had a $18 price tag until recently, now Gity is free and open source, and you can download it from Mac Endeavor’s site.

    I would also recommend Giggle http://live.gnome.org/giggle (yet its for linux but you can install it on you mac via darwinports) http://giggle.darwinports.com/

    If you really want to Mac version of Gitty, then there is Gitti http://www.gittiapp.com/ but in BETA stage.

    There’s also GitNub (http://wiki.github.com/Caged/gitnub/) and

    I just discovered today that a new version, 0.4.4, is out. My auto-update was broken so I downloaded the new version, and it’s actually a lot better. More stable, UI tweaks. Nice!
