5 Introduction
6 ------------
7
8 Apart from git contrib/ area there are some others third-party tools
9 you may want to look.
10
11 This document presents a brief summary of each tool and the corresponding
12 link.

14
15 Alternative/Augmentative Porcelains
16 -----------------------------------
17
18 - *Cogito* (http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/cogito/)
19
20 Cogito is a version control system layered on top of the git tree history
21 storage system. It aims at seamless user interface and ease of use,
22 providing generally smoother user experience than the "raw" Core GIT
23 itself and indeed many other version control systems.
24
25
26 - *pg* (http://www.spearce.org/category/projects/scm/pg/)
27
28 pg is a shell script wrapper around GIT to help the user manage a set of
29 patches to files. pg is somewhat like quilt or StGIT, but it does have a
30 slightly different feature set.
31
32
33 - *StGit* (http://www.procode.org/stgit/)
34
35 Stacked GIT provides a quilt-like patch management functionality in the
36 GIT environment. You can easily manage your patches in the scope of GIT
37 until they get merged upstream.
38
39
40 History Viewers
41 ---------------
42
43 - *gitk* (shipped with git-core)
44
45 gitk is a simple TK GUI for browsing history of GIT repositories easily.
46
47
48 - *gitview* (contrib/)
49
50 gitview is a GTK based repository browser for git
51
52
53 - *gitweb* (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/gitweb/)
54
55 GITweb provides full-fledged web interface for GIT repositories.
56
57
58 - *qgit* (http://digilander.libero.it/mcostalba/)
59
60 QGit is a git/StGIT GUI viewer built on Qt/C++. QGit could be used
61 to browse history and directory tree, view annotated files, commit
62 changes cherry picking single files or applying patches.
63 Currently it is the fastest and most feature rich among the git
64 viewers and commit tools.
65
66
67
68 Foreign SCM interface
69 ---------------------
70
71 - *git-svn* (contrib/)
72
73 git-svn is a simple conduit for changesets between a single Subversion
74 branch and git.
75
76
77 - *quilt2git / git2quilt* (http://home-tj.org/wiki/index.php/Misc)
78
79 These utilities convert patch series in a quilt repository and commit
80 series in git back and forth.
81
82
83 Others
84 ------
85
86 - *(h)gct* (http://www.cyd.liu.se/users/~freku045/gct/)
87
88 Commit Tool or (h)gct is a GUI enabled commit tool for git and
89 Mercurial (hg). It allows the user to view diffs, select which files
90 to committed (or ignored / reverted) write commit messages and
91 perform the commit itself.
92
93 - *git.el* (contrib/)
94
95 This is an Emacs interface for git. The user interface is modeled on
96 pcl-cvs. It has been developed on Emacs 21 and will probably need some
97 tweaking to work on XEmacs.
