Introducing Gitweb


This is the third in a series of blog posts around Git and a new feature coming in version 72, Git Version Control. You can see the first post: What is Git? Last week we showed you the new Git Version Control interface. Keep watching for a new one every Wednesday! 

If you follow our feature request site, you already know about our upcoming feature, Git Version Control. We’re designing it to make hosting repositories as easy for developers as a “Hello World!” script.

Alongside our feature, we’re also shipping a great application that’s developed by Git: Gitweb. It’s a fantastic tool for exploring your repositories from within a simple interface. (Remember, if you need help with some of the Git-specific terms in this post, check out Git’s gitglossary.)
What is Gitweb?

Gitweb makes finding information a whole lot easier than doing it on the command line. It’s comparable to some of the features included with paid Git hosting, without that pesky “paying for it” part.

Gitweb organizes your repository’s information into reports. Summary reports give you the high-level data. Detailed reports let you “drill down” into the specifics. When you navigate between commit-specific reports, Gitweb keeps everything within that context. You can also search within repository information and within the files themselves.

Gitweb may be especially helpful if you’re using our new feature to manage deliverable code. You could show changes, like website designs, to your clients without worrying about unwanted edits. All they’d need is access to a cPanel account.
