Git vs Git Flow: What are the differences?

Developers describe Git as "Fast, scalable, distributed revision control system". Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. On the other hand, Git Flow is detailed as "A set of git extensions to provide high-level repository operations". It provides excellent command line help and output. It is a merge based solution. It doesn't rebase feature branches.

Git can be classified as a tool in the "Version Control System" category, while Git Flow is grouped under "Git Tools".

Git and Git Flow are both open source tools. It seems that Git with 28.2K GitHub stars and 16.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Git Flow with 1.9K GitHub stars and 455 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Git has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3934 company stacks & 4790 developers stacks; compared to Git Flow, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

        Git Flow ermöglicht es uns durch seinen Aufbau einen reibungslosen Ablauf während der Entwicklung von Projekten zu haben, ohne uns großartig mit Konflikten auseinandersetzen zu müssen. Git Flow passt gut zu unserer agilen Arbeitsweise und integriert sich gut in den Arbeitsablauf.

        been an avid git user for over 6 years. was a little hard to grasp coming from the world of perforce but once it hit me that it was just a glorified patch manager everything fell into place. mainly use the command line interface, most ui's feel bulky and weak.

        Git has rendered itself to be an integral part of all development at JustChunks. We heavily rely on Git as our version-control-system of choice and use branches, tags and decentralized-development to achieve our software-management-goals.

        I use Git because there is nothing else that seems better for backup and working with other developers. However, the learning curve is high and there are times when non-developers must also know how to use git.

        the next generation of version control, all others follow older outdated models. Open Source, no fees to use. Can hoist up your own internal server. Can live on a thumb drive. Developers can share from any OS.

        Git ist ein essentieller Bestandteil unserer Entwicklungsteams. Sei es zur Versionskontrolle, Backupen von Code, dem gemeinsamen arbeiten an Projekten. Durch Git Flow haben wir eine effektive Arbeitsweise.
