What is best Git GUI for Haiku that can dynamically list commits?
- QGit. Requires manually limiting commit count to be able to load in reasonable time. Currently best GUI for me.
- Guitar. Don’t load in reasonable time with Haiku repository. Unusable.
- trackgit. Unstable.
i’m happily use guitar… but maybe that just me…
i’ll try Qgit a shot another time
i don’t have any recommendation right now… but thanks for your list…
I use tig (ncurses) but I think this is also a bit slow in Haiku (I use it with WebKit which is a very large repo, however).
I think part of the slowness is because git itself normally relies on hardlinks and uses a slower fallback when used on bfs disks (which can’t do hardlinks). But I have not confirmed if using git with another filesystem in Haiku helps with that.
I actually tried porting SDL-Tk so that the built-in
git gui would work, as these work well on other OSes, but the port just crashes in an assert, or (if you continue past that) displays a white screen. I committed the recipe, though, so if you want to look into that, you may find it useful.
I’m not an advanced git user, but for me Track Git is ok.
