Do you have any command line tools?

Do you have any command line tools? I can open directory in SourceTree by "open ./ -a SourceTree", but can I provide branch/commit as argument? Can I open file editing history by command line or file blame?

Yes, if you're using the version direct from you can install them using the menu, under SourceTree > Install Command Line Tools. You can then use 'stree' to open a folder SourceTree (it works a little better than open -a because it will find the repo in parent folders automatically). If you're using the Mac App Store version there's a separate download available to support that, but we strongly recommend you just switch to the direct version since MAS won't be getting any more updates after 1.5.6.

You can't supply any other arguments right now.
