horse-control

Version control, written in Haskell with all that monadic goodness! (Currently totally in progress and not finished in the least)

Build Status Coverage Status

Differences with Git

  • does not distinguish between tracked and untracked files
  • horse stage replaces git add and git rm
  • the staging area does not store changes; rather, it merely tracks filenames to commit
  • horse squash replaces git rebase -i
  • addition of horse unstage
  • horse init doesn't overwrite existing repositories like git init does
  • can't initialize a repo in a subdirectory of another repo
  • checkout completely overwrites working directory (product of not distinguishing between tracked and untracked files)
  • untrack and retrack replace .gitignore. Their behavior is also slightly different w.r.t. previously tracked files in Git, since horse-control doesn't distinguish between untracked and unstaged files.
