At Montreal on Rails this evening, Jean-François Couture presented Git. I installed it on my Ubuntu Desktop machine, and I found that gitk was horrible to look at. Even after following Jean-François’ Various Tips For Setting Up Git: Improve Gitk Look And Get Bash Completion, gitk wasn’t really up to snuff with the rest of my UI.
On the Git home page, I found a reference to qgit, a much nicer looking application. Install and see for yourself.
