Quick comments about the GUI tools. LLVM repo is truly a stress test for
tools with its 200000 commits. Some simple tools usually cannot handle a
log view.
- SmartGit is great and cross-platform. But is not free.
- SourceTree was ok too, but I had to switch as it does not support Linux.
- GitKraken looks promising, but lacks advanced features and in general a
bit sluggish. I've just opened LLVM repo with it and log browsing is fine.
- GitHub app is very simple (as I remember it) and not Linux support. Not
sure it allows any history rewrite and that might be needed if you want to
keep linear history in LLVM.
