PyPI version Build Status

Gitless is an experimental version control system built on top of Git. Many people complain that Git is hard to use. We think the problem lies deeper than the user interface, in the concepts underlying Git. Gitless is an experiment to see what happens if you put a simple veneer on an app that changes the underlying concepts. Because Gitless is implemented on top of Git (could be considered what Git pros call a 'porcelain' of Git), you can always fall back on Git. And of course your coworkers you share a repo with need never know that you're not a Git aficionado.

More info, downloads and documentation @ Gitless's website.

Questions or comments about Gitless can be sent to the Gitless users mailing list.


Note that the installation won't interfere with your Git installation in any way, you can keep using Git, and switch between Git and Gitless seamleslly.

You need to have Python and Git installed. If you don't, search for their official websites, install them and come back.

The easiest way to install Gitless is using the Python Package Manager pip. If you don't have pip, just search the web for it, and you'll find installation instructions on their website. Now, once you have pip installed just do:

$> pip install gitless

You should now be able to start executing the gl command.


There are several ways you can contribute to the project:

  • Design: if you have any feedback about Gitless's design we would love to hear from you. You can create an issue in the project with your feedback/questions/suggestions or shoot us an email.
  • Reporting bugs: did you find a bug? create an issue for it and we'll fix it ASAP.
  • Code: you can browse through the open issues and see if there's something there you would like to hack on. Is something missing? feel free to propose it!

After you've contributed you can send us a pull request adding yourself to the AUTHORS file if you want to.

If you're planning on submitting code here are some useful things to know:

  • We only have two branches, master and develop. We code in develop and merge the changes onto master when the changes are stable and we're ready to cut a new release. So you'll find on develop the latest changes.

  • We follow (to some extent) the Google Python Style Guide. Before submitting code, take a few seconds to look at the style guide and the Gitless's code so that your edits are consistent with the codebase.

  • Finally, if you don't want Travis to be mad at you, check that the tests pass in python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3 and that you don't have any pylint errors (warnings and refactor suggestions are ok).
