tig: The dream application

I have to give high marks to tig, a text-mode interface for git, even if I may never, ever, in this life or the next, have the chance to really put it to use.

That’s just lovely. Color everywhere. Line-drawn characters showing connections between revisions. Breakout panels for examining code in detail. Line-by-line color coordination for easy viewing. Intuitive controls. Left-and-right panning, as well as scrolling. Onboard help screens. One-key jump to $EDITOR. The list goes on.

tig is like my dream application. It’s as if someone read through every post I’d made for the past eight years and distilled it into one program.

And the irony is, I will probably never get to the point where I could use it. 😦

No matter. This is definitely worthy of a coveted K.Mandla gold star: ⭐ Enjoy. 😉
