Projects / tig


Tig is an ncurses-based text-mode interface for git. It functions mainly as a git repository browser, but can also assist in staging changes for commit at chunk level and act as a pager for output from various git commands.

Recent releases

  •  10 Aug 2013 15:27

    Release Notes: This release adds a new stash view to help manage work in progress and improves the log view and re-enables it on the commandline. Among other notable changes, it is now possible to jump directly from the diff/blob/stage view to the corresponding file.

    •  12 Oct 2012 16:05

      Release Notes: This minor update adds basic support for line wrapping, a vertical view split mode, autobuild improvements, and a lazy navigation mode (which avoid loading child views). Note that tig no longer uses move/copy detection by default, to work better on large repositories. See the release notes for the full list of changes and how to restore the old behavior.

            Release Notes: An ncurses 2.8 issue was fixed by passing a non-zero column size to newwin. Opening of diffs when browsing branches was improved.
