Quick start

Clone a remote repository

  1. Click on the + icon to add a new repository.
  2. Enter remote URL (see URL format below).
  3. Enter local repository name - note that this is not a path since SGit stores all repositories in the same directory on the mobile device.
  4. Username - username to use to clone the remote repo.
  5. Password - password to use to clone the remote repo.
  6. Click the Clone button.
  7. If all the credentials are correct, SGit will download the repository (all branches) to your device.

Create a local repository

  1. Click on the + icon to add a new repository.
  2. Click on Init Local to create a local repository.
  3. Enter the name for this repository when prompted.
  4. A local repo will be created.

URL format


  • SSH running on standard port (22): ssh://username@server_name/path/to/repo
  • SSH running on non-standard port: ssh://username@server_name:port/path/to/repo
  • username is needed - by default, SGit tries to connect as root.


  • HTTP(S) URL: https://server_name/path/to/repo

To Do List

  • Private key passphrase
  • Submodule support
  • Dark theme
  • Commits related to a file
