"Very useful tool"

October 20, 2013  |  By griswolf

 |  Version: SmartGit 5.0p3

Pros

The log view is one of the best things: You can see at a glance all the recent branches and tags on your repository, and you can compare them with a click

The UI is well thought out (and not a complete copy of all git command line features). If you feel the need you can edit the toolbar.

There are extensions (it is extendable). My favorite is git flow. You can write your own (but I've not found a need)

Cons

It is a graphical tool: If you're a command-line kind of person, you may not see the need (though the log viewer is great)

The file comparison / merge tool is smart, but not ... quite... as smart as I would like in the way it shows some differences. I may be asking for the moon, here...

Some of the default behaviors are wrong, even dangerous (for my work flow): Rebase is default, merge should be.

Sometimes, Smart Git gets itself into a weird state that is very difficult to resolve without dropping to the command line. And, since Smart Git is so nice, it has trained you to forget how to use the command line.

Docs are more about getting started than about how to cope with difficult or unusual circumstances.

Summary

A very good tool with a very few rough edges.
