gitg [options] [repository] [<refspec>]


gitg is a graphical user interface for git. It aims at being a small, fast and convenient tool to visualize the history of git repositories. Besides visualization, gitg also provides several utilities to manage your repository and commit your work.


-c,--commit Open gitg in commit view

-?,--help Show the help message

[repository] Load the repository at repository in gitg. If unspecified, gitg will try to open the repository at the current working directory

[<refspec>] Populate the history view of gitg using the specified <refspec> which has the same format as used with git log (Example: gitg --left-right HEAD..FETCH_HEAD)
