SourceTree for Windows/Linux

When we can expect to see SourceTree for Windows?

There's no definite plan for a port just yet, but there may be one in the future if enough people are interested.

Guess what? Enough people were interested. :)

Maybe since Atlassian is already giving it away for free it could be open-sourced to allow for outside participation in the port.

Adding my request for a Windows port, please. Best git client I've used, bar none.

Edit: I hope you see the analytics for this page and it's 5k+ views are google referrals for "sourcetree windows" - and I'm hoping it's enough to warrant a port.

+1 == Interest + 1 ;)

@Jim: This whould be indeed the best solution, pushing SourceTree OpenSource on bitBucket!

c'mon Atlassian, think enterprise, there is no Mac or Windows only ecosystem, developers love and have to choose different workstations for different projects!

Half my team uses Mac OSX, and the other half Windows...with the mandated change coming up from Atlassian regarding adoption of DVCS, and the ease with which SourceTree provides Hg-flow, it would *very* helpful for us to have SourceTree for Windows (helps on policies and procedures, because we are not large enough to justify a Stash $$ purchase, but too large for the under 10 people Stash fees).

It's fair to say we've received the message :) Thanks for all your votes of support, and stay tuned to our blog/twitter for future announcements!

What is the threshold for having "enough people interested?"

I think SourceTree would be a huge success on Windows.


+1 in my side for windows / linux support.

I currently search the way to host SourceTree on a Mac and stream execution content to windows, but did not find the way :P

+1 for me too. Tower is beautiful and all Windows clients look ugly or are overcomplicated. Bring SourceTree to Windows

SourceTree is beautiful. There are no good free git clients for windows. Tower is expensive. Me and my people would love SourceTree on windows.

I only know one excellent client for Windows (Linux and OS X) - SmartGit. Tower is not expensive, just like SmartGit isn't. They are absolutely worth the price. Those who can't pay 100 bucks for a daily use tool, should question their job.

Most of my Git work is actually hobby, not job, and I have a hard time justifying $100 for yet another tool to do that, no matter how good it is. I would gladly pay them something like $20-30, but not $100. Expensive is a relative measure, I guess :-)

SmartGit is free for hobby use, IMHO Tower isn't. BTW, I don't need SourceTree for Windows any more because of SmartGit.

Please, port SourceTree to Windows and GNU/Linux!!!



A linux version of SourceTree would be awesome! I'm fine with waiting until the Windows version is released, but I would love to see SourceTree for linux, even if it is only officially supported on a few distributions officially.

Myself and a few guys i work with are all interested in a Windows version. Would love to see a port!

To be honest... on Windows we already have quite a lot of git clients. Concentrate on Mac so that there are no trade offs made during porting and when trying to develop single code for both platform.

Take a look at Tower. You already have quite some catching up to do on Mac.

SourceTree works with more than just Git. We use Mercurial at my work, and I'm jealout that Mac colleagues can use this great piece of software! I'm stuck with TortoiseHG, which doesn't work as nicely as SourceTree

Please respond with a git client on Windows with feature parity with SourceTree on OSX. I would love to use something that's as good as it.

SourceTree is definitely better than anything I've found for Windows so far. There are loads of clients out there but they just don't feel very polished. They look and feel like 1998. We'd love to see SourceTree ported!

For Windows, try SmartGit. It's not as visually polished as SourceTree but it is a very effective tool and the development team are very responsive, turning around my bug within hours.

I love SourceTree and have been telling all my students and coworkers use it. Seeing a Linux port would solidify it as better than the terminal in my opinion.

A port to Wine, or Wine installation instructions would be good enough for me too.

Huge +1 for linux support. I use SourceTree on OSX, and I have to use SmartGit on linux to get as close as possible to SourceTree, but there really is no replacement.

Update. SmartGit is a proper full replacement for SourceTree. I haven't used SourceTree in years now. 

We'd likely standardize the company on this if there were a Linux (Ubuntu) port. Any plans for Linux support?

+1 for GNU/Linux version.

Released as .deb & .rpm would be a must

I would have to say...if it worked on linux in any fashion whatsoever, I would be just as happy, regardless of the packaging :-)

Please also consider the Linux port!

Thank you Atlassian!!! Now a port for Linux. It should be easier that the Windows one :-) Good work!!!

I would like to see and even to contribute to have a Windows port too ...

This could really use a Windows/Linux port.

As superficial as that may sound initially, I only looked at the interface.

I use git bash normally, but need a UI for complicated merges.

I'd love to see SourceTree on Windows.

It would be great to have SourceTree for Windows! I'm very interested in having it if you'd make a port.



Going to continue commenting on this because come on Atlassian...SourceTree makes Git a pleasure to use and we need it on Windows.

Linux would be nice as well, but understandably that'd be low priority.

Glad you like SourceTree and thanks for the enthusiasm. We are definitely listening, but that's all I can say at this point. :)

Also very interested in a Windows port; need to use Mecurial at work but there's any graphical client with good history browsing support

Definitely interested in a Windows port. SourceTree is by far my favorite Git and HG client on OS X, and while Windows has some nice clients a good cross-vcs client is absent.

We really need it for Linux!



+1 , used to work on mac for years, now im stuck on windows, lucky me i dont have a problem with cli

+1 I'd love to see this as well. I love using SourceTree on my Mac, and am sad when I'm on a Windows machine and can't use it ;)

+1 for windows version!

I just can't help but using SourceTree. I have thrown away all of my other tools and repos and switched over to too. I would LOVE a Windows version of SourceTree, as the best feature I'm missing right now is the GitFlow implementation.

Please, please, make a Windows version too.
