h2. This original work is no longer active

A much improved version/fork is available at *”GitX (L)”* or *”GitX-dev”*.

h2. GitX

GitX is a git GUI specifically for Mac OS X. It currently features a history viewer much like gitk and a commit GUI like git gui. But then in silky smooth OS X style! User-relevant information can be found on the <a href=””>GitX Homepage</a>.

h2. Download

The newest version of GitX is 0.7.1. This version can be downloaded from <a href=””>here</a>.

The development head can be found “here”: You’ll need XCode to build GitX. If you’re adventurous, you could try out other people’s forks as well.

h2. Helping Out

You can help in a couple of ways:

Start developing! Just clone the source and let me know what you made. Before you do, do please read Submitting Changes

Help out without developing. You don’t need to know Objective-C to help. Here are a few things you can do:

Create nice color schemes. The current colors for the labels, the branch lines and the diff view could be improved

Make the diff viewer pretty. This thing is all in JavaScript / HTML so should be easy to do. Here is a description to get you started.

Create interface mockups if you have a better idea.

Use it and *”file bugs”:*. If I don’t hear about it, I won’t fix it :)

Request features on the *”GitX Lighthouse”:* page.

h2. When changing the XIB’s

If you are going to change the interface, PLEASE use XCode 3.1. XCode 3.1 actually produces xibs that are mergeable, in contrast to previous XCode versions.
