When comparing to other nice-gui-git-tools, Source Tree is definetly one of the best and I'd like to use it on Linux, too!

Hi there,

We currently have no plans for Linux yet.


ÕIS Admin Mar 20, 2013

please make some plans :)

Ubuntu/Linux is great and one thing that is missing is your very good software

danilo2 Mar 23, 2013

Linux is used by much more developers than mac osx. You are not making a funny, colourfull plastic apple toy for girls that are 14years old, but you are making a serious programmers tool - so you should also consider serious platforms ;)

We basically do things by popularity for our service, not on a general level. We want to make as many developers as happy as possible. We've had a huge influx of Linux requests, so perhaps we'll be taking it into more serious consideration in the near future. As it stands, we have no plans for a Linux version, we're focussing on making the Mac and Windows experience better.

The last time people demanded a Windows version, they made requests on a thread of answers on this system, that's one of the ways we guaged the massive demand for it. Perhaps further persistence will lead to action ;) - we are listening though, we promise!

danilo2, are you kidding? Macs are used by the vast majority of Silicon Valley tech companies and start-ups.

In fact, the person who CREATED Sourcetree explains why he went with OS X here:

"Mac OS X has become my own platform of choice for most things now. The combination of stability, user-friendliness, Unix underpinnings and well designed hardware match my current needs perfectly. I’m done with the ‘some assembly required’ PCs"

I have a feeling you aren't as keyed in to the software development scene as you think you are.

2 years later, there is still no plans for Linux version despite the huge interest...

Michał Mela Feb 19, 2016

@Brian: Linux is as popular as OS X among developers as this survey clearly shows.

Too bad :(

We have about 10 developers and it appears that the major platform we are using is ubuntu. We pay for other atlassian tools and would pay for a Linux version as well. Of course I'm assuming if source tree were made for Linux it would hopefully be as usable as gitkraken which I think is quite awesome.

+1 for Linux. This would change the way I develop. Git is powerful, but having a GUI like SourceTree allows other developers to get up to speed much quicker. This is an outstanding product but being tied to Windows or Mac and having slightly different feature base has kept us Windows dependant for the time being. Keep up the great work guys, I think I speak for everyone when I say we are not beating you up for not having a Linux branch, we just really would love to see one moving forward.

I would happily pay for a linux SourceTree. Please port it.

James Mark Chan Aug 12, 2018

Agree why not just make plans to charge for it? Easy revenue stream...

I would like to add my voice to the many Linux Version requesters. Sourcetree is beautiful, but I can't bear to leave the security and open source nature of Linux!

Hoping for a linux version soon...

+1 Linux Version please! :)

Supporting a platform with no Entry costs for developers will surly boost the popularity of your already excellent services! :D

James Mark Chan Aug 12, 2018

Agree, doesn't have to be feature rich. Just add a feature for people to donate to make it better if you don't want to charge and this could easily resolve the resource situation. I'm curious about the nature of a blocker. I'd like to suggest that there are easy work arounds to nearly  anything they would be able to share with us.

+1 for linux too.

Surely you guys must be aware of all of these requests and can maybe make some sort of statement? Good customer service and all that. I know linux dev might seem costly, but I think a lot of developers now use linux and more will in the future. So you would be future-proofing your software!

Please, please, please. Port to Linux. I miss SourceTree so much :'-(.
