A simple terminal UI for git commands, written in Go with the gocui library.
Are YOU tired of typing every git command directly into the terminal, but you're too stubborn to use Sourcetree because you'll never forgive Atlassian for making Jira? This is the app for you!
brew tap jesseduffield/lazygit brew install lazygit
Packages for Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 and 18.10 are available via Launchpad PPA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lazygit-team/daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install lazygit
Packages for Void Linux are available in the distro repo
They follow upstream latest releases
sudo xbps-install -S lazygit
Packages for Arch Linux are available via AUR (Arch User Repository).
There are two packages. The stable one which is built with the latest release and the git version which builds from the most recent commit.
- Stable: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lazygit/
- Development: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lazygit-git/
Instruction of how to install AUR content can be found here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository
Released versions are available for different platforms, see https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/lazygit
conda install -c conda-forge lazygit
Binary Release (Windows/Linux/OSX)
You can download a binary release here.
go get github.com/jesseduffield/lazygit
If you get an error claiming that lazygit cannot be found or is not defined, you
may need to add
~/go/bin to your $PATH (MacOS/Linux), or
(Windows). Not to be mistaked for
C:\Go\bin (which is for Go's own binaries,
not apps like Lazygit).
lazygit in your terminal inside a git repository. If you want, you can
also add an alias for this with
echo "alias lg='lazygit'" >> ~/.zshrc (or
whichever rc file you're using).

Work in progress
This is still a work in progress so there's still bugs to iron out and as this is my first project in Go the code could no doubt use an increase in quality, but I'll be improving on it whenever I find the time. If you have any feedback feel free to raise an issue/submit a PR.
If you find that lazygit doesn't quite satisfy your requirements, these may be a better fit:
