Release the Kraken - GitKraken

As I’m using Git more and more as my day to day source control system, I’m trying some different tools to see which one best suits my needs.


One of the tools I’m giving a test run is GitKraken, an (at the moment of writing) free tool to manage your Git repo’s.


It offers some nice features like:

  • Build on top of Electron making it a great cross platform experience
  • Brings a lot of the power of Git in an easy visual interface
  • Visual hints to guide you through the Git process
  • Submodules and Gitflow support

What I especially like so far is that it makes Git a lot easier to use without losing its power and flexibility.
