    The GITK you described is an old, generic GUI project not related to git in any way (the last update to that page actually predates git entirely). The gitk you meant to put in the list is the repository viewer that ships with most distributions of git. It’s purely a viewer, you can’t actually make any changes from it, so I’d hesitate to refer to it as a client.

    I’ve been using GitKraken and I totally love it! Also, SourceTree is a good client. Too bad it is only available for Mac OS and Windows…

    I can’t believe tortoise git is not there

    Also there is another gui tool available called Cycligent Git Tool.

    But like gitkraken it seems that no hooks are implemented so i could only use it for private projects that don’t rely on pre-commit hooks etc.

    That makes me sad :(

  5. Stefan Michalsky says:

    I love to use gitkraken, but it doesn’t support hooks yet so it is limited in features… :(

    This is a nice list for Git clients for Linux. My favorite ones are Gitg, Giggle, Git gui, and QGit.
