I've been using the original GitX but I've noticed it hasn't had any updates for quite a while. Which version of GitX is the most active, in terms of updates/stability/features?

1 Answer 1


Judging by the commit histories, I'd say Laullón's fork.

Update to this answer, Judging by the commit histories, I'd say rowanj's fork now a days. Download link is in the Readme.md with lots of changes!

    That's what I thought at first, but it wasn't nearly as stable as the brotherbard fork

  • Note that most stable is not always the same as most active. I have just started using Germán Laullón's fork, and it works pretty nicely for me… although I am running from the github build to fix the git-svn issue in 0.8.1. Apr 23, 2011 at 22:26

    GitX (L) is almost unusable for me, I don't know what he did to the codebase, but it's extremely slow, and with multiple projects open at once it becomes unbearable. The brotherboard fork comes with the same sidebar and is super fast, like the vanilla GitX.

    Cf. GitX: a short history. Looks like the momentum is behind GitX-dev (neé GitX-L(rowanj)), which seems to have regained teh snappy that slothlike GitX-L lost. Jul 11, 2012 at 12:14

    In 2016 this tool is still invaluable to my workflow.
