Preferred Git client

I didn't see a previous post on this topic. Please redirect if there is one.

What, if any, Git client does everyone use. I've been using Tower for years, but I'm considering alternatives now. Just got a notice for their new version and it's now a subscription model. $55/yr for the Basic version. I get 50% off that since I've purchased a license previously, but that's only for the first year. :(

I have GitKraken, which is free for Open Source development, which covers just about everything I do. If it's not Open Source, it's personal use only. Used it a few times, seems pretty powerful.

GitHub desktop is pretty limited, from what I can tell. Haven't really tried to do much with it.

Several more listed at

Anyone tried anything else?

Re: Preferred Git client

I use a combination of Github Desktop and the built-in Git integration in PyCharm. But I also don't do pull requests, or anything else other than just syncing repos and checking stuff in to ones I own, so I probably don't use the features you're looking for.

Re: Preferred Git client

I use PyCharm exclusively and am entirely happy with that choice. The subscription model for open source is fantastic.

Create a repo on the GitHub web client, copy the URL, and check out from version control. I’m not sure it could be any more straight forward.
