Git legendary, my friends. GitKraken includes two legendary products that make devs more productive: the Git Client and Glo Boards!

Use the Git Client to visualize the history and changes to your repos in a beautiful graph that makes working with Git more intuitive.

GitKraken Git Client Features:

  • See your branching, merging and commit history in a dark or light themed graph.

  • Simplify complicated commands like merge, rebase and push into drag and drop actions.

  • Integrate with GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, GitLab, GitLab Self-Hosted, Bitbucket and VSTS.

  • Create, clone and add remote repos from integrated services.

  • Create and view pull requests from integrated services.

  • Easily open repos, set favorites, and organize them in project groups.

  • View file history and blame.

  • Quickly undo or redo with one click.

  • Use the built-in code editor to directly edit files without switching tools.

  • While editing code, use diff split view, syntax highlighting and search files.

  • Resolve merge conflicts without ever leaving the app.

  • Use multiple profiles for work and personal projects.

  • Use Gitflow, Git Hooks, LFS and submodules.

GitKraken Glo Boards Features:

  • Reduce context switching, and use Glo Boards to help your dev team track tasks and issues from inside the GitKraken Git Client.

  • Also access Glo inside VS Code, Atom, a browser or from our iPhone or Android apps.

  • Create cards to track tasks, issues, items, features, etc.

  • Sync GitHub Issues, assignees, descriptions, comments and labels in real-time across systems.

  • Visualize the progress of GitHub issues with workflows.

  • Create different workflows and labels for each board.

  • Add different users and security permissions for each board.

Enable snaps on Ubuntu and install GitKraken

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

If you’re running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) and Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:

Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
