Git Overview keeps track of your Git repositories.

Git revolutionized version control. Git repositories exist almost everywhere on the hard disk. This sometimes makes it difficult to keep track of all the repositories scattered across your hard disk. With Git Overview you can now watch all your repositories. The icon in the menu bar informs you whether one of the repositories contains an open change.

The Git Overview menu shows the status of all added repositories. You can quickly see which repositories have pending changes or need to be uploaded to the remote page. Clicking on any of the items in the menu will open a terminal session in the chosen repository and get you started.

Git Overview also offer you the option "Ask On Close". If "Ask OnClose" is enabled, Git Overview will note before exiting if one of the repositories has any open changes. The message prevents you from shutting down your Mac and gives you the opportunity to edit the open changes.

To keep track of your repositories, Git Overview can be conveniently started at login.
