I watched this thread, but it seems to be focused on Windows 7 and not apply to me
I've always found SourceTree to be very slow. Lately though, it's gotten out of hand. Especially since native git and GitX is orders of magnitude faster. What I mean by that is that the UI freezes a lot (I get the spinning bathing ball for many seconds). For instance, this happen when I click a file in the "Unstaged" area, so it's added to the "Staged" area. Now I have to wait a couple of seconds before I can click on a file in the "Unstaged" area again. Also just scrolling in the "Unstaged" area is very slow.
Some more information
This is really painful. Any way I can help out by sending dumps/more information?
I found a solution working for me:
I realized that SourceTree used the embedded git with version 2.1. I installed via brew git 2.3 and switched sourcetree to using my brew-git.
Tada: Now SourceTree is fast, again.
Mine seems to be working now on my Mac. I've been seeing significant performance issues with SourceTree as well. Tried many things (including suggestions here) and it continued to be very slow.
I finally changed the view from 'log' to 'file status' and then back again and now it's speedy again. IU believe the UI might have a memory leak that gets reset upon view change(I know, doesn't make immediate sense). I'll post updates if things change.
Told SourceTree to use local git version, restart SourceTree and nothing has changed. Then 2 minutes later it was slightly faster, and then again slow, but it's a bit less frequent.
It seems to me that SourceTree want to rescan the whole repo every time you click on something.
