Source Tree provides a GUI for version control

Sunday, August 12th, 2012 by Servage

Are you a web developer who doesn’t like to play system administrator when working on your website? I personally don’t like command line stuff, and prefer the look and feel of user interfaces with buttons, menus and things to see and understand, whilst not just executing boring and complex commands. The same goes for using version control. Obviously you can run your checkouts, commits, branches, merges or whatever i a command line, but there are beautiful tools out there which visualize the often complex structure of your versioned source code.

Source Tree is a beautiful desktop app for Mac, which allows you to handle your version control with a great and intuitive display. It simply makes it easier, thus more effective.
