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:
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.
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!
Hi folks, While the full post is over on our blog I'd like to share the dark theme we've got planned for 2019 here directly as well to keep the discussion going. The ...
