[ANN] git cola: a highly caffeinated git gui

David Aguilar
Greetings!

The latest version of git cola is available for download from the
usual interwebs:

    http://cola.tuxfamily.org/
    http://gitorious.org/projects/git-cola/

git cola is a highly functional git gui licensed under the gpl.
It's written in Python/Qt4.  In addition to its native platform
(Linux/Unix), cola also runs on OSX and Windows.

Although tarballs, .rpms and .deb packages are available, building it
from source is very easy.

On debian it's as simple as:

    sudo apt-get install simplejson python-qt4 pyqt4-dev-tools python-pyinotify
    git clone git://gitorious.org/git-cola/mainline.git cola
    cd cola && ./configure && make && make install

Like git gui, it allows you to do very fine-grained commits.  It has a
bunch of other random useful stuff, so I figured it was about time to
announce it here.  It has inotify support on Linux, which is why
there's no rescan button in cola.

Hopefully the code isn't too rotten ;-)


CAVEATS:

i18n/l10n is incomplete.  I used the latest .po files from git-gui,
but obviously there are a number of strings in git cola that don't
have translations.  If there is an interest in cola from the user
community then I will need some advice on how to handle this
situation.  I don't like having stolen the .po's from git-gui (sorry
Shawn!) but it did prove that the infrastucture for "LANG=ja git cola"
is working correctly.

cola works by parsing git commands.  It's pretty fast despite the
process overhead, though it'll probably be a bit slower on windows.  I
have no idea what cr/lf issues exist (if any), though I've tried to be
careful about it.


enjoy,

p.s. if you happen to prefer dark color themes you can run: git cola
--style=dark

Your dependencies don't match.

sorry, I used alien to convert my .debs into an rpm. scripts/mkdeb.sh.
yum installing pyqt4 should fix it.
