Git Tool

Simplify checking out your Git repositories in a structured directory space

Git Tool is a powerful tool for managing your Git repositories, storing them in a consistent folder structure and simplifying access when you need it. The best place to get started is by reading our documentation.


  • Quickly open repositories whether they are already cloned locally or not, using your favourite Git services and a concise folder structure.
  • Launch applications within the context of your repositories quickly and consistently.
  • Weekly scratchpads to help organize random work and doodles with minimal effort.
  • Aliases to make opening your most common repositories as quick as possible.
  • Fast autocompletion on all platforms with support for "sequence search" (ssgt matches SierraSoftworks/git-tool) as found in Sublime and VSCode.


# Open the sierrasoftworks/git-tool repo in your default app (bash by default)
# This will clone the repo automatically if you don't have it yet.
gt o sierrasoftworks/git-tool

# Open the repo in VS Code (if listed in your config)
gt o code gh:sierrasoftworks/git-tool

# Create a new repository and instruct GitHub to create the repo as well, if you
# have permission to do so.
gt new gh:sierrasoftworks/demo-repo

# Show info about the repository in your current directory
gt i

# Show information about a specific repository
gt i ado:sierrasoftworks/opensource/git-tool

# Open your shell in the current week's scratch directory
gt s
