GitKraken: meet this interesting tool for developers


If you are a developer and you work frequently with services like GitHub, GitLab, etc., then you know that there are some steps that can be somewhat annoying. Instead, there are interesting tools that can help you on a day-to-day basis, such as GitKraken.

This app has a graphical interface to manage your projects, and is already used by many well-known developers and even companies such as Netflix, Tesla and Apple. One way to have a friendly hub for software Git version manager, and therefore also for the aforementioned services ...

Of course, it is a totally free, although it has paid versions too, and it's available for Linux, in addition to Windows and macOS. Obviously, the free version will be more than enough for many private developers, but some companies may need the extras of the paid version.

This way you will be able to avoid the procedures in text mode of your Git account and start doing everything else fast and intuitive with a GUI. From it you can do a multitude of things. Among the salient features of GitKraken are:

  • You can have multiple profiles.
  • It integrates seamlessly with GitHub Enterprise, GitLab (both hosted and non-hosted), Bitbucket, and VSTS.
  • Editor to be able to see branches, merging, commit history.
  • Possibility to configure dark mode.
  • Simplicity in terms of merge, overflow and push actions. It also supports creating, cloning, and adding repositories remotely, as well as viewing and creating pull requests.
  • You can open repos, set favorites, organize your products and groups, etc.
  • It includes a built-in code editor to edit files directly from it. You can even use diff to see differences in code, and it has the ability to highlight text, search, etc.
  • You can of course use Gitflow, Git Hooks, LFS, and submodules.
  • And much more…

You will find this program in the repos of the most popular distros, so you can install it easily with package management tools (there are also snap and Flatpak). You can also enter the official website that I leave at the end to download other packages, and you can even find it in some apps stores ...
