Overall Satisfaction with Sourcetree

As an eCommerce websites developer, I handle many projects from multiple clients, and Sourcetree works great for handling the code in our repository and keep it synchronized. It provides valuable features as a GUI, so makings stashes, merges, pull requests, managing Git Flow, among others, becomes fairly easy.
  • Git flow
  • Visually representing the repository branches.
  • Handling third party applications for file comparing
  • There is a strange flickering on displays with G Sync on
  • A better, native, file comparing tool could be added
  • It seriously decreases the time required to set up a new or existing project

Do you think Sourcetree delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Sourcetree's feature set?


Did Sourcetree live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Sourcetree go as expected?


Would you buy Sourcetree again?


I can't think of an scenario where I would not use Sourcetree over the command line or where it would be objectively worst. I really like the ability to select just the lines I want for a certain commit so I can write the commit message in more detail. I also have not found a feature that you cannot use on Sourcetree but can on a command line interface. Thus, I cannot remember the last time I used the command line interface to handle repositories instead of just installing Sourcetree.
