Kind of iTunes for Git (but better)

Reviewed on 2023/09/14

Smooth, macOS-like (design language-wise).

Smooth, macOS-like (design language-wise).

Pros

I like the clean, intuitive UI, great UX and ease of cherry-picking and doing interactive rebases. All of that makes it a pretty powerful tool in a sleek package.

Cons

Not much really. Poor performance with large git repositories, occasional bugs (UI and git-related).

Reasons for Switching to Tower

It's more of a complementary tool to what I've been using via CLI.

Simply the best Git client out there

The Tower website states that it's not Tower or the Git CLI, but Tower and the Git CLI. And this is something I can actually agree with: I typically do use the Git CLI for everyday tasks, such as adding, committing, pushing, … but when it comes to things that you don't do that often manually, I switch to Tower, which gives me the feeling of still having all the details under control, but of not running the risk of causing any damage. So, Tower helps me to feel more safe and more confident in what I do, even if it's about the hard things in Git.

Pros

The challenge for any Git client is to combine ease-of-use with not abstracting away the underlying concept too much. Tower does a perfect job here: It does not hide what's happening under the hood, and this way feels familiar if you know Git pretty well, but at the same time manages to make it simple and fun to use. What I especially like is the way Tower handles branches, including branching off, merging, switching branches, cleaning up branches, and so on, … This is IMHO one of the most well-done features in Tower, and it helps you to get done what you want to achieve, without getting in your way. In contrast: It assists where reasonable, but as said still clearly communicates what it's doing under the hood. So, to cut it short: Its UI is the perfect combination of simple yet powerful.

Cons

Phew, hard to tell. Actually I'd say "nothing", but if I have to come up with something I'd probably say it's that Tower does not run on Linux (only on macOS and Windows), which is the reason why we can't use it on anyone's machine in our company (some of us are using Linux).

Generally it is great (fine) and I will continue to use it on mac. In other environments we sting to commandline. But everytime it is possible I go back to Tower since it makes things easier, more clear and e.g. diffs are more clear to me here in the app then in online.

Pros

Compared to integrated source code solutions Tower brings a nice interface which is disconnected from your IDE. So even for people who are not proficient with git commands the app makes using versioning a breeze. Creating a repo? There is an interface for that. Merging branches - there is UI for that. Staging? The is UI for that.
All commands are available in some sort of interface so it makes versioning easier even for newcommers.

Cons

At some point the app messed up with encoding of files and broke our deployment scripts in GitHub. Plus there is no clear workflow, so user can actually press buttons and hope for the best. Guidelines would be great.

An awesome Git client

Tower is one of those phenomenally useful tools that is done with great taste, simply works, and gets out of your way when you are heads down into your work. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone dealing with Git.

Pros

I am a Software engineer working in the Bay Area. I stumbled upon Tower, the wonderful Git client for macOS about 5 years ago. Ever since that day, I use Tower everyday for my work. I was drawn to Tower because of its ease of use, particularly drag and drop, for creating and merging branches. Dealing with Git conflicts, ability to quickly undo using CMD-Z and support for external diff tools are all awesome additional features. I particularly love how easy it is to quickly rebase your changes based on a remote branch.

But there are two big features in Tower that has saved me countless hours of work. The ability to quickly "stash" changes and apply them at will to different branches, and the ability to use "Reflog" to recover changes that were accidentally discarded. Tower (and Git under the hood) works really hard to not lose your changes, but even if you somehow override all of the warnings, it is possible to get the changes back.

In addition to these, the ability to search by author, commit hash, file, date and ability to easily push, pull and rebase (basic expectations from any Git client) are all very well done.

Cons

There are not many things that I wish Tower did better. But there is one. I wish the text box that allows you to type the commit description is scrollable. It is painful to use the arrow keys to navigate particularly long commit messages. I often end up writing my commit messages in an external editor and simply paste it in the textbox right before I commit.

Tower has become one of the software tools we use on a day-to-day basis. It enables us to commit with confidence and solve merge conflicts with ease. Even our new developers can instantly work with Tower, even if they have never used Git before. It really makes a big difference in productivity.

Pros

The ease-of-use, the super intuitive interface, the time it saves us in our daily software development routine. The value it adds to our workflow. Git Tower became an indispensable item in our daily software toolset. Ever since we started using Git Tower everyone knows how to use Git efficiently and securely. It dramatically reduced frustration in our team trying to solve merge conflicts in the command line. These days are luckily over since Tower.

Cons

Nothing really, I couldn't think of anything right now. We use it daily and love it.
