Magit is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package.
Unlike the VC package which is part of Emacs and strives to provide a unified interface to various version control systems, Magit only supports Git and can therefore better take advantage of its native features.
Please consider supporting development using Gratipay, Flattr, Paypal, or Bitcoins. — Thank you!
Magit was started by Marius Vollmer and is now maintained by Jonas Bernoulli. Other Magitians (former maintainers) are Nicolas Dudebout, Peter J. Weisberg, Phil Jackson, Rémi Vanicat, and Yann Hodique. Many more people have contributed code and suggested features. Thanks to all of you, may (the history of) the source be with you!
