Git vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
Git: Fast, scalable, distributed revision control system. Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency; SourceTree: A free Git GUI client for Windows and macOS. Use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.
Git and SourceTree are primarily classified as "Version Control System" and "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" tools respectively.
"Distributed version control system", "Efficient branching and merging" and "Fast" are the key factors why developers consider Git; whereas "Visual history and branch view", "Beautiful UI" and "Easy repository browsing" are the primary reasons why SourceTree is favored.
Git is an open source tool with 28.2K GitHub stars and 16.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Git's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Git has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3934 company stacks & 4789 developers stacks; compared to SourceTree, which is listed in 618 company stacks and 415 developer stacks.
I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.
It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.

been an avid git user for over 6 years. was a little hard to grasp coming from the world of perforce but once it hit me that it was just a glorified patch manager everything fell into place. mainly use the command line interface, most ui's feel bulky and weak.
Git has rendered itself to be an integral part of all development at JustChunks. We heavily rely on Git as our version-control-system of choice and use branches, tags and decentralized-development to achieve our software-management-goals.
I use Git because there is nothing else that seems better for backup and working with other developers. However, the learning curve is high and there are times when non-developers must also know how to use git.
the next generation of version control, all others follow older outdated models. Open Source, no fees to use. Can hoist up your own internal server. Can live on a thumb drive. Developers can share from any OS.
Git ist ein essentieller Bestandteil unserer Entwicklungsteams. Sei es zur Versionskontrolle, Backupen von Code, dem gemeinsamen arbeiten an Projekten. Durch Git Flow haben wir eine effektive Arbeitsweise.
Used by various PrometheanTV technical staff to interface and interact with the Git Source Control service.
Since being familiar to git CLI, I nearly never open it again except using it as a diff tool.
Used Source Tree to maintain version / commit / pull request , merge of codes for a team.
