       git-gui - A portable graphical interface to Git

       git gui [<command>] [arguments]

       A Tcl/Tk based graphical user interface to Git. git gui focuses on
       allowing users to make changes to their repository by making new
       commits, amending existing ones, creating branches, performing local
       merges, and fetching/pushing to remote repositories.

       Unlike gitk, git gui focuses on commit generation and single file
       annotation and does not show project history. It does however supply
       menu actions to start a gitk session from within git gui.

       git gui is known to work on all popular UNIX systems, Mac OS X, and
       Windows (under both Cygwin and MSYS). To the extent possible OS
       specific user interface guidelines are followed, making git gui a
       fairly native interface for users.

	   Start a blame viewer on the specified file on the given version (or
	   working directory if not specified).

	   Start a tree browser showing all files in the specified commit (or
	   HEAD by default). Files selected through the browser are opened in
	   the blame viewer.

	   Start git gui and arrange to make exactly one commit before exiting
	   and returning to the shell. The interface is limited to only commit
	   actions, slightly reducing the application’s startup time and
	   simplifying the menubar.

	   Display the currently running version of git gui.

       git gui blame Makefile
	   Show the contents of the file Makefile in the current working
	   directory, and provide annotations for both the original author of
	   each line, and who moved the line to its current location. The
	   uncommitted file is annotated, and uncommitted changes (if any) are
	   explicitly attributed to Not Yet Committed.

       git gui blame v0.99.8 Makefile
	   Show the contents of Makefile in revision v0.99.8 and provide
	   annotations for each line. Unlike the above example the file is
	   read from the object database and not the working directory.

       git gui blame --line=100 Makefile
	   Loads annotations as described above and automatically scrolls the
	   view to center on line 100.

       git gui citool
	   Make one commit and return to the shell when it is complete. This
	   command returns a non-zero exit code if the window was closed in
	   any way other than by making a commit.

       git gui citool --amend
	   Automatically enter the Amend Last Commit mode of the interface.

       git gui citool --nocommit
	   Behave as normal citool, but instead of making a commit simply
	   terminate with a zero exit code. It still checks that the index
	   does not contain any unmerged entries, so you can use it as a GUI
	   version of git-mergetool(1)

       git citool
	   Same as git gui citool (above).

       git gui browser maint
	   Show a browser for the tree of the maint branch. Files selected in
	   the browser can be viewed with the internal blame viewer.

	   The Git repository browser. Shows branches, commit history and file
	   differences. gitk is the utility started by git gui's Repository
	   Visualize actions.

       git gui is actually maintained as an independent project, but stable
       versions are distributed as part of the Git suite for the convenience
       of end users.

       A git gui development repository can be obtained from:

	   git clone git://


	   git clone

       or browsed online at

       Part of the git(1) suite
