About

Git is an amazing tool, but the UI could use some love. For more info see: http://www.saintsjd.com/2012/01/a-better-ui-for-git/

gum is a small set of UI improvements for git. It is very much a work in progress

Installing Gum

Just add the aliases to your .gitconfig file.

[alias]
    # gum aliases for git version 3

    #add files to the staging area
    freeze="!f() { ( [ -z $@ ] && git add -A || git add -A "$@" ) && git st; }; f"

    # remove files from the staging area
    unfreeze="!f() { ([ -z "$@" ] && (git reset -q HEAD > /dev/null 2>&1 || echo "first commit must be unfrozen file by file. better error message coming soon") || (git reset -q HEAD -- $@ > /dev/null 2>&1 || git rm -q --cached $@ ) ) && git st; }; f"

    # Show short status with current branch name
    st="!f() { br=$(git status | head -1) && echo "${br}" && git status -s; }; f"

Usage

# stage/freeze a snapshot of my project (including new and deleted files)
# also shows a quick preview. Commit it if you like what you see. unfreeze if you don't.
> git freeze

# stage/freeze a snapshot of one file (including new and deleted files)
# also shows a quick preview. Commit it if you like it. unfreeze if you don't.
> git freeze <file>

# unstage/unfreeze all changes in the snapshot (including new and deleted files)
> git unfreeze

# unstage/unfreeze one file in the snapshot (including new and deleted files)
> git unfreeze <file>

# check the status of my files... right now this just runs git status -s. This will get fancier.
> git st

Feature Ideas!

# cleaner output by default for status
> git status
Frozen snapshot ready for commit:
    M daemon.c
    N test.txt

Unfrozen Changes (will NOT be committed):
    M hello.c
    ? new.c

# synchronize all changes with my remote branch
# like github for mac and legit... automatically runs stash, pull, push, unstash
> git sync <remote>


# browse old revisions like Mac TimeMachine...

# go back one revision
> git history back

# go forward one revision
> git history forward

# go back, back, back, then return to latest
> git history back
> git history back
> git history back
> git history latest

# display log
> git history
