Please Note!

GitAhead is no longer under active development. Low-level maintenance and bug fix releases will be made as necessary for the foreseeable future, but no new features or major changes are planned at this time. Please consider continuing development in a rebranded fork for anything other than trivial changes.

GitAhead - Understand Your History

GitAhead is a graphical Git client designed to help you understand and manage your source code history. It's available as a pre-built binary for Windows, Linux, and macOS, or can be built from source by following the directions below.

Build Environment

  • C++11 compiler
    • Windows - MSVC >= 2017 recommended
    • Linux - GCC >= 6.2 recommended
    • macOS - Xcode >= 10.1 recommended
  • CMake >= 3.3.1
  • Ninja (optional)

Dependencies

External dependencies can be satisfied by system libraries or installed separately. Included dependencies are submodules of this repository. Some submodules are optional or may also be satisfied by system libraries.

External Dependencies

  • Qt (required >= 5.9)

Included Dependencies

  • libgit2 (required)
  • cmark (required)
  • git (only needed for the credential helpers)
  • libssh2 (needed by libgit2 for SSH support)
  • openssl (needed by libssh2 and libgit2 on some platforms)

Note that building OpenSSL on Windows requires Perl and NASM.

How to Build

Initialize Submodules

git submodule init
git submodule update

Build OpenSSL

# Start from root of gitahead repo.
cd dep/openssl/openssl

Win:

perl Configure VC-WIN64A
nmake

Mac:

./Configure darwin64-x86_64-cc no-shared
make

Linux:

./config -fPIC
make

Configure Build

# Start from root of gitahead repo.
mkdir -p build/release
cd build/release
cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../..

If you have Qt installed in a non-standard location, you may have to specify the path to Qt by passing -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=<path-to-qt> where <path-to-qt> points to the Qt install directory that contains bin, lib, etc.

Build

ninja
