Nowadays it is basically impossible to land in a group of Emacs enthusiasts without someone talking rapturously about the wonders of Magit. If you listen closely, the words resemble a chant: “You wish you could do it with Git, until you experience the great Magit.”
Be warned: the following story goes along those magic lines.
Why You Should Use Magit: A Git Porcelain Inside Emacs by Matthew Forsyth — 2017.10
Magit is the holy grail of workspace tools, allowing Git users to handle all aspects of source control directly from within Emacs. But rather than merely lauding Magit and asking you the reader to take my recommendation at face value, I’d like to share a couple of recent events that reminded me why Magit is such a powerful tool.
It’s Magit! And you’re the magician! by Artur Malabarba — 2017.9
I could go on and on about the virtues of this gem. It’s probably the package that most saves me time, and has taught me more about git than I learned reading a whole book on it. But that’s all just sparks and glitter on top of the real show. For Magit is a magic show, and its real feature is making you the magician.

I like Magit, the GNU Emacs package for Git by Chris Siebenmann — 2015.12
Magit rocks for selectively staging changes, so much so that I think it’s worth turning to GNU Emacs with Magit for this if you need it, even if you regularly edit in something else.

Why I Don’t Hate Git: Hidden Consistency by Daniel Gempesaw — 2015.6
I don’t hate git solely because of magit. Although it is an Emacs package, I strongly recommend it even to non-Emacs users just because of how useful it is.
I’m actually so dependent on magit that I’m significantly less effective with other vc’s since they don’t have a magit-like frontend for me to use.
An introduction to Magit, an Emacs mode for Git by Mickey Petersen — 2015
Magit by Randy Coulman — 2014.10
When we decided to migrate to Git a few years ago, I decided to try Magit in Emacs as a front-end, and I’ve never looked back.
Some users have also published screencasts and wrote nice things I like to quote.
