GitUp vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
GitUp: The Git interface you've been missing all your life. GitUp lets you see your entire labyrinth of branches and merges with perfect clarity. Any change you make, large or small, even outside GitUp, is immediately reflected in GitUp's graph. No refreshing, no waiting; 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.
GitUp and SourceTree belong to "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by GitUp are:
- Highlight a commit and hit the spacebar to quickly see its message and diff.
- GitUp gives you full, transparent control over your local checkout, so it's easy to back out from unwanted changes.
- GitUp's Snapshot feature builds a Time-Machine-like history of every change made to your repo, allowing you to step backwards to any point in time.
On the other hand, SourceTree provides the following key features:
- Full-powered DVCS
- Create, clone, commit, push, pull, merge, and more are all just a click away.
- Review your outgoing and incoming changesets, cherry-pick between branches, patch handling, rebase, stash, shelve, and much more.
"Can edit commit messages" is the top reason why over 5 developers like GitUp, while over 199 developers mention "Visual history and branch view" as the leading cause for choosing SourceTree.
