GitX (L)

What is GitX (L)?

GitX (L) is a gitk like clone written for OS X Leopard and higher. This means that it has a native interface and tries to integrate with the operating system as good as possible. Examples of this are drag and drop support and QuickLook support.


The project is currently still in its starting phases. As time goes on, hopefully more features will be added. Currently GitX (L) supports the following:

  • Commit view
    • Commit/Parents/Tree SHA links
    • File changes counts
    • File Diffs
    • Commit Tags and Refs
  • File view
    • Source Code Highlight
    • Blame
    • File History (log)
    • Diff with local and HEAD
  • Sidebar
    • Branches
    • Remotes
    • Stashes
    • Submodules
  • Stage view
    • Unstaged/Staged files
    • Stage/Discard by lines
    • Amend
    • File diff


GitX is licensed under the GPL version 2. For more information, see the attached COPYING file.


GitX (L) is currently hosted at GitHub. It's project page can be found at

Recent binary releases can be found at

If you wish to follow GitX (L) development, you can download the source code through git:

git clone


The easiest way to get GitX (L) running is to download the binary release from

If you wish to compile it yourself, you will need XCode 3.0 or later. As GitX makes use of features available only on Leopard (such as garbage collection), you will not be able to compile it on previous versions of OS X. To compile GitX (L), open the GitX.xcodeproj file and hit "Build".


GitX (L) itself is fairly simple. Most of its power is in the 'gitx' binary, which you should install through the menu. the 'gitx' binary supports most of git rev-list's arguments. For example, you can run gitx --all to display all branches in the repository, or gitx -- Documentation to only show commits relating to the 'Documentation' subdirectory. With gitx -Shaha, gitx will only show commits that contain the word 'haha'. Similarly, with gitx v0.2.1.., you will get a list of all commits since version 0.2.1.

Helping out

Any help on GitX (L) is welcome.
