A Git Porcelain inside Emacs

Magit is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package. Magit aspires to be a complete Git porcelain. While we cannot (yet) claim that Magit wraps and improves upon each and every Git command, it is complete enough to allow even experienced Git users to perform almost all of their daily version control tasks directly from within Emacs. While many fine Git clients exist, only Magit and Git itself deserve to be called porcelains. (more)

Thanks to 1987 backers the Kickstarter campaign was a huge success! This September was very exciting and I would like to thank you all for your generosity and enthusiastic support!

Thank you! — Jonas Bernoulli
