Git-Tool will make sure your repository is ready to go when you need it, no more messing around with Git URLs.


Just because your doodles are disorganized, doesn't mean your filesystem needs to be. Git-Tool gives you weekly directories for your doodles in just 5 keystrokes!

Git Tool is a developer productivity toolset designed to enable command line developers to more quickly manage and interact with their various repositories. It is written in Go and supports command completion in most common shells.


  • Quickly open repositories whether they are already cloned locally or not, using your favourite Git services and a concise folder structure.
  • Launch applications within the context of your repositories quickly and consistently.
  • Weekly scratchpads to help organize random work and doodles with minimal effort.
  • Aliases to make opening your most common repositories as quick as possible.
  • Fast autocompletion on all platforms with support for "sequence search" (ssgt matches SierraSoftworks/git-tool) as found in Sublime and VSCode.
