Git with less typing

gg is an alternative command-line interface for Git heavily inspired by Mercurial. It’s designed for less typing in common workflows and make Git easier to use for both novices and advanced users alike.

Getting Started

Download the latest release (1.0.1), which was released on . Binaries are available for Linux and macOS.

You must have a moderately recent copy of Git in your PATH to run gg. gg is tested against Git 2.20.1 and newer. Older versions may work, but are not supported.

Once you have gg installed in your PATH, the Working Locally guide will show you how to use the basic commands.
