What is Magit?

It is an interface to the version control system Git, implemented as an Emacs package. It aspires to be a complete Git porcelain. While we cannot (yet) claim that it 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 deserve to be called porcelains.
Magit is a tool in the Version Control System category of a tech stack.
Magit is an open source tool with 6.4K GitHub stars and 802 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Magit's open source repository on GitHub
