Version control systems & add-ons



  • Git shallow clones let you clone only part of your Git history.
  • Git filter-branch let you rewrite a repository's history and prune branches.
  • Git clone --single-branch
  • Git sparse-checkout
  • Git LFS improves the handling of large files in Git.
  • GVFS virtualizes the file system beneath your git repo so that git and all tools see what appears to be a normal repo, but GVFS only downloads objects as they are needed. Windows only.
  • SlothFS is similar to GVFS, but read-only. It works on Linux and OSX.
  • git subtree merges and splits subtrees from your project into subprojects and back.
    • git subsplit automates and simplifies the process of managing one-way read-only subtree splits.
