Sublime Merge vs Tower: What are the differences?
What is Sublime Merge? *A Git client from the makers of Sublime Text *. A snappy UI, three-way merge tool, side-by-side diffs, syntax highlighting, and more. Evaluate for free – no account, tracking, or time limits.
What is Tower? The most powerful Git client for Mac & Windows. Use all of Git's powerful feature set - in a GUI that makes you more productive.
Sublime Merge and Tower belong to "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" category of the tech stack.
"Speed" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Sublime Merge, while over 16 developers mention "Git" as the leading cause for choosing Tower.
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.
