GitX is a git GUI made for Mac OS X. It currently features a history viewer much like gitk and a commit GUI like git gui. But then in silky smooth OS X style!



GitX runs on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Because it uses features like Garbage Collection, you can't compile it on earlier systems. GitX also requires a fairly recent Git -- version 1.6.0 and higher are all supported.


The newest version of GitX is 0.7. This version can be downloaded from here. To see what has changed, read the Release History.

After starting GitX, you can install the command-line tool through the menu (GitX->Enable Terminal Usage…). This will install a “gitx” binary in /usr/local/bin.
