More than half my class: "I prefer the gui from git for Windows to the command line"

The same half: "whoops... How do I revert that?"

    This never changes. I'm in a shop of 18 and 12 or more can't use git bash at all.

    So does the gui miss the revert function or is this just another "real programmers do what i do" thing?

    Cli or go home.

    I only like GUI for history but vsCode has a pretty good plugins for that 😁

    @CWins the UI is capable but very limited and can't be used for difficult situations.

    And unresponsive websites, if it is still unresponsive.

    Tbh it's good that they at least use git, i'd rather have that then have to spend hours teaching someone why it's an important tool.

    @CWins its literally right click, revert so

    @f03n1x I didn't give them a choice as lead Developer! The UI was a compromise.

    As long as no build broken, whatever float your boat.

    The visualization aspect of something like GitKraken is a must for me. I do most of my commands with CLI, but actual blame, history and diffing? CLI just ain't enough

    @CWins it's missing a lot of functions, but more important, it has this "merge push pull" function which in still not entirely sure what it does... I remain suspicious..

    I have nothing against using a GUI for it but it's very limited. If they must use a GUI if recommend the tortoise one as it has more functions than you will use on a daily basis.

    I use Sourcetree for everything and manage just fine.

    I ❤ GitKraken. Amazing GUI for Git.

    Typically I just use what's built into VSCode and change the default terminal to a git bash terminal for default. For complex branches or a lot of cooks in the kitchen, however, the railway-style chart visualization is so helpful in GitKraken!

    JetBrains WebStorm and PHPStorm (only two I've used by JB) also have this feature built into their Version Control panel.
