So after using SourceTree since 1.0, my opinion is that 2.x is not usable in a Development environment because of performancy issues. It takes 2 - 5 minutes to start up SourceTree as before it turned into an 'APP' it would launch immediatly.
Each click event in de APP launches a get from all the history (or thats what my best guess is)
So here is my question:
Are there any settings in 22.214.171.124 that can be modified so it doesnt do all that refreshing without doing nothing? Is there a timer that gets stuck and i can disbale? for example automatically sync or something like that? Any help is welcome since I'm starting to look for an other solution to work with GIT.
I fully agree and hope there will be a solution to this. 2.x has slowly become slower and slower with each release.
For the day-to-day things I have moved to GIT command-line and the tools built-in into the IDEs I am using (PHPStorm and Visual Studio Code)
I'm on Windows 10 1703 64-bit.
I am also having serious problems after the upgrade to 126.96.36.199. I have tried to re-install and run some other git config commands all with no avail. It is so slow that I cannot hardly use it.
I am on Windows 7 64bit SP1. Command line seems to run fast.
I have tried embedded git as well as system git. SourceTree is very unresponsive with either one.
Could you try disabling the "Refresh automatically when files change". Additionally, could you try going to the git settings and check "disable libgit2"
Additionally, could you provide the following details:
Version 188.8.131.52 is so slow it's unusable. Each click on a log line takes 5-20 seconds to update the UI, which is unresponsive in the meantime.
According to Fiddler no meaningful traffic is exchanged with BitBucket while the spinners are shown, and ProcMon tells me all SourceTree is doing is scanning all directories recursively for .gitignore files.
Rolling back to version 184.108.40.206 resolves the slowness for now, see SourceTree Download Archives.
This would suggest something else is wrong. Could you record a video of the slowness? To easily record in Win10, you can use the game recorder (WIN+G). It will ask if Sourcetree is a game: select "yes this is a game". Once you record, go to "Videos -> Captures".
Will try, however I now find that ST is pretty fast when I have now been clicking around trying to get it slow.
Thinking, this is not my normal way of working with ST. Normally I am around in other applications (browser, IDE and command prompt etc) for minutes and maybe an hour and then go back to ST to commit or check changes. THEN ST is slow with the busy indicator showing for > 20 seconds. I am running on multiple desktops in Task View but haven't seen if this affects anything.
While writing this reply I have been in Chrome and after about two minutes switch to ST and it is unresponsive and showing the progressbar for a long time. Quickly going back and forth between Chrome and ST (Alt-Tab) and the progressbar is just showing for milli-seconds.
"Show behind and ahead in tabs" only displays on tabs that you're not currently viewing (as that info is already exposed to you), and shows the current branch ahead/behind display.
It should look like this when the tab is not selected:
And when that tab is selected:
So I have had this issue for the last 3 versions. Can't remember the specific version numbers by it was ever since updating to version 2. Tried everything suggested here (I think) and then decided to wipe out all user and global settings directories and reinstall. Basically did a search in C:\Users\<username>\AppData and %allusersprofile% for anything resembling atlassian and sourcetree and renamed it (for safety). After that and reinstalling it all seems to be running fine. Not sure if this helps but I was at the point of throwing it away.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
