Title : Port of the week: tig Author: Solène Date : 10 April 2018 Tags : unix git Today we will discover the software named **tig** whose name stands for **Text-mode Interface for Git**. To install it on OpenBSD: `pkg_add tig` Tig is a light and easy to use terminal application to browse a git repository in an interactive manner. To use it, just 'cd' into a git repository on your filesystem and type `tig`. You will get the list of all the commits, with the author and the date. By pressing "Enter" key on a commit, you will get the diff. Tig also displays branching and merging in a graphical way. Tig has some parameters, one I like a lot if `blame` which is used like this: `tig blame afile`. Tig will show the file content and will display for each line to date of last commit, it's author and the small identifier of the commit. With this function, it gets really easy to find who modified a line or when it was modified. Tig has a lot of others possibilities, you can discover them in its man pages.
