Interactive rebase. i.e. git rebase -i

Not sure sourcetree already supports it or the feature does not exist right now. If not, just wondered if you plan to add that feature.

Thanks.

Not yet - we only support standard rebasing right now, so no squashing etc. I have an item for future development labelled 'history editing', which for Git would be rebase -i and for Mercurial will probably be MQ or the record extension. It's fair to say this isn't a top priority though since it's obviously dangerous in the wrong hands, so it's as much about making the effects super-clear as simply supporting the mechanism - in a way it's safer for only the more experienced command-line jockeys to be using it for the moment.

I have been using GitX, commandline and Smartgit combo for different things, right now it is mostly SourceTree and commandline. My last commandline that I regularly use is the git rebase -i.Thought I could get rid of that as well.

Thanks for the answer.

We use rebase a ton to rewrite history (on local branches only of course) before merging into the development branch. I'm guessing that this is a highly sought after feature for any serious git user. Please think about including it in a future release! BTW, this is the best git client for the mac by a long shot

Hi, I'm mostly using git on Windows using gitextensions tool and they take a simple approuch to rebase. They allow you to point to the branch on which you want to rebase and if you choose interactive they simply open text editor when you need to make the input. It's simple, it's working and it's great. Hope to see your solution soon. Ido.
