Well, nowadays we have some serious competition in this area, like GitKraken that looks better and has some extra features on top of SourceTree


Would've been nice to have ST on Linux but since Atlassian doesn't care about the platform it's time the feeling becomes mutual.

Yes, would use it on Linux for my Web Server code, now doing it by hand.

-10,000 for Linux no longer matters.  SourceTree has been left behind.

Let's move on.  So the next time Atlassian deletes this thread topic, let it be.

Now to convince them to link Bitbucket with other tools.  If they don't, then GitLab or GitHub, although are more expensive, will get me to switch.

I've yet to find another GIT tool that beats SourceTree.


While Sourcetree is dying and allowing others like GitKraken and GitHub Desktop to catchup none have surpassed yet.

I love SourceTree. GitKracken is not free for commercial use and yet not as capable as SourceTree. Really hope SourceTree will not die and will listen more to growing Linux (and that is really cross platform) community.

I wish someone from Atlassian would take part in this discussion. Make some updates on the topic. Show that you're listening to the users. Explain yourself better.

Just might be SourceTree could be open sourced and made Linux-campatible by the commubity?

I can agree the ticket is solved:

Move to Gitkraken


Or try GitExtensions for Mono, because they try to find a solution for Linux users, here Ubuntu:

 +100 users asking for Linux SourceTree

It's a great .NET application so it's probably got serious dependencies on win32.

Linux support would be appreciated, however there are plenty of quality FOSS git clients.

is this a joke? there's no linux port of SourceTree??

It's a .NET application.

Yet, SourceTree for Mac is a thing

lots of git kraken advertisers here.

sadly this time I have to agree that these online product pushers have a point.

going to have to use it until source tree comes along with a port for linux.

Hate to say, but I found a GitHub project that people seem to don't know about much yet:  It's a .Net application written for Windows, but can run under Mono under Linux. Linux support seems to be unofficial, has the Win95 look on Linux, but to me is good enough as the feature set and interface resembles Soucetree. However I tried it on Mac and the UI is unfortunately blown up under Mono  I found myself running it side-by-side with Sourcetree on Windows too due to the minimized problem that appeared in SourceTree 3.0.

Very disappointing from Atlassian to be dismissing Linux users, knowing that a huge number of developers are on Linux.

For a company this size, and for the premium price people for their products on a per-user basis, it seems INSANE that they DON'T WISH to do a Linux version of SourceTree, knowing that many Open Source projects have provided decent Git clients on Linux and FOR FREE.

What language was SourceTree written in? If it were open source, I’m sure some people (including me) would volunteer to make a Linux fork. To be honest, I very much prefer BitBucket over GitHub and would hate to make the switch. Meanwhile, I will try running it using WINE!
