5.0/5
About

Fork is a fast and nicely designed git client for Mac and Windows.

Would you recommend this product?
Hi.

I've been using Fork since its early days and the progress it has made since then is incredible! Looking forward to using it more and seeing it grow along. :)

Pros:

Simple yet functional UI, I get my stuff done very quickly!

Cons:

Not as feature-rich as other tools

Hi Sebastian! Thank you for the comment! I remember you being one of the very first Fork users :). Could you please contact me regarding features you'd like to see?

Also a early user since beta testing, Fork has successfully replaced Tower, GitX (various versions) as my primary Git client. Now I use Fork for reviewing and committing, use GitUp for better branch graph view when it comes to large and complex projects.

Pros:

- Well designed layout, everything just works as expected, no hassle when you just wanna get things done.

- Night mode

- Cli tool is great

Cons:

- UI is a little bit slow when switching between multiple tabs

- Commit message box is a little bit annoying, it has 3 different heights

Compared to other solution, here are why Fork wins:

1. It's more simple than others, such as Source Tree, which is highly integrated with Bitbucket.

2. Run much faster and with lower RAM usage compared to other Electron based Git GUI clients.

3. A lot of advanced features are just a click away and somehow I feel that Fork is like GitX on steroid :)

4. Dark theme is a thing :)

5. Very friendly and helpful developers (see their Twitter to verify this)

Pros:

This is an extremly useful tool. I mostly use it as a diff viewer and to get an overall look at my repository

Cons:

There is pretty much no cons for now.

Spending a lot of time on git everyday, I'm always on the quest of the best productive Git client. Having tried command lines, Tower, SourceTree, Kraken, etc Fork ends up to have the best features for the productivity: fast start time like Tower, good diff viewer as SourceTree, quick merge/rebase, etc.

Pros:

Best git tool on Mac! Have best features from Tower and SourceTree.

Cons:

More shortcuts 😎
