Lazygit - Simple Terminal UI For Git Commands

A simple terminal UI for git commands, written in Go with the gocui library.
Are YOU tired of typing every git command directly into the terminal, but you're too stubborn to use Sourcetree because you'll never forgive Atlassian for making Jira? This is the app for you!


brew tap jesseduffield/lazygit
brew install lazygit

Packages for Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 and 18.10 are available via Launchpad PPA.
Release builds
Built from git tags. Supposed to be more stable.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lazygit-team/release
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lazygit
Daily builds
Built from master branch once in 24 hours (or more sometimes).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lazygit-team/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lazygit

Void Linux
Packages for Void Linux are available in the distro repo
They follow upstream latest releases
sudo xbps-install -S lazygit

Arch Linux
Packages for Arch Linux are available via AUR (Arch User Repository).
There are two packages. The stable one which is built with the latest release and the git version which builds from the most recent commit.
Instruction of how to install AUR content can be found here:

Binary Release (Windows/Linux/OSX)
You can download a binary release here.

go get
Please note: If you get an error claiming that lazygit cannot be found or is not defined, you may need to add ~/go/bin to your $PATH (MacOS/Linux), or %HOME%\go\bin (Windows). Not to be mistaked for C:\Go\bin (which is for Go's own binaries, not apps like Lazygit).

Call lazygit in your terminal inside a git repository. If you want, you can also add an alias for this with echo "alias lg='lazygit'" >> ~/.zshrc (or whichever rc file you're using).
