editor's review





SmartGit is a powerful and versatile Git client that provides support for GitHub Pull request+Comments, Mercurial and SVN.

Comprehensive and streamlined Mercurial and Git management utility

What is more, SmartGit does not required the use or installation of additional tools thanks to the built-in SSH client, File Merge and Compare tool. The features list allows you to quickly modify commits before pushing, commit individual lines within your files and even recover lost commits with ease.

Moreover, you can clone from Assembla, GitHub and other popular hosting providers in addition to creating and resolving GitHub pull requests and review comments.

As a result, you no longer have to rely on developers to merge fixes or new features, you can now send a Pull Request to the system integrator, which will fetch the pull request commits, review them and merge or reject the pull request. Additionally, the Comments feature allows you to quickly add comments to lines of committed files.

Increased security for repository connections and a handy built-in log feature

SmartGit features support for 2-factor authentication for connections to the GitHub servers and uses API tokens instead of passwords. In other words, you only need to share your GitHub account password with SmartGit only once.

The Log comes with support for pull and push and helps you to visually identify unpushed commits thanks to the used color-coded system. Commands like “move the head, “move arbitrary refs”, “reset current branch” and “cherry-pick or rebase a commit range" can be quickly performed with drag-and-drop.

Powerful and complex repository organizer and manager for Mac users

From within SmartGit’s main window, you can organize your SmartGit, SVN, and Hg repositories into various projects, which can also be divided into multiple repositories. At the same time, the Directories pane helps you view the directory structure.

You can open and clone existing repositories, create new ones and reorder them via drag-and-drop if you need to handle more repositories within a project.
