       git-gui - A portable graphical interface	to Git

       git gui [<command>] [<arguments>]

       A Tcl/Tk	based graphical	user interface to Git. git gui focuses on
       allowing	users to make changes to their repository by making new
       commits,	amending existing ones,	creating branches, performing local
       merges, and fetching/pushing to remote repositories.

       Unlike gitk, git	gui focuses on commit generation and single file
       annotation and does not show project history. It	does however supply
       menu actions to start a gitk session from within	git gui.

       git gui is known	to work	on all popular UNIX systems, Mac OS X, and
       Windows (under both Cygwin and MSYS). To	the extent possible OS
       specific	user interface guidelines are followed,	making git gui a
       fairly native interface for users.

	   Start a blame viewer	on the specified file on the given version (or
	   working directory if	not specified).

	   Start a tree	browser	showing	all files in the specified commit.
	   Files selected through the browser are opened in the	blame viewer.

	   Start git gui and arrange to	make exactly one commit	before exiting
	   and returning to the	shell. The interface is	limited	to only	commit
	   actions, slightly reducing the application's	startup	time and
	   simplifying the menubar.

	   Display the currently running version of git	gui.

       git gui blame Makefile
	   Show	the contents of	the file Makefile in the current working
	   directory, and provide annotations for both the original author of
	   each	line, and who moved the	line to	its current location. The
	   uncommitted file is annotated, and uncommitted changes (if any) are
	   explicitly attributed to Not	Yet Committed.

       git gui blame v0.99.8 Makefile
	   Show	the contents of	Makefile in revision v0.99.8 and provide
	   annotations for each	line. Unlike the above example the file	is
	   read	from the object	database and not the working directory.

       git gui blame --line=100	Makefile
	   Loads annotations as	described above	and automatically scrolls the
	   view	to center on line 100.

       git gui citool
	   Make	one commit and return to the shell when	it is complete.	This
	   command returns a non-zero exit code	if the window was closed in
	   any way other than by making	a commit.

       git gui citool --amend
	   Automatically enter the Amend Last Commit mode of the interface.

       git gui citool --nocommit
	   Behave as normal citool, but	instead	of making a commit simply
	   terminate with a zero exit code. It still checks that the index
	   does	not contain any	unmerged entries, so you can use it as a GUI
	   version of git-mergetool(1)

       git citool
	   Same	as git gui citool (above).

       git gui browser maint
	   Show	a browser for the tree of the maint branch. Files selected in
	   the browser can be viewed with the internal blame viewer.

	   The Git repository browser. Shows branches, commit history and file
	   differences.	gitk is	the utility started by git gui's Repository
	   Visualize actions.

       git gui is actually maintained as an independent	project, but stable
       versions	are distributed	as part	of the Git suite for the convenience
       of end users.

       The official repository of the git gui project can be found at:

       Part of the git(1) suite

Git 2.35.1			  01/28/2022			    GIT-GUI(1)
