GitKraken vs Sublime Merge: What are the differences?

Developers describe GitKraken as "Git GUI Client for Windows Mac and Linux built on Electron". The downright luxurious Git client for Windows, Mac and Linux. Cross-platform, 100% standalone, and free. On the other hand, Sublime Merge is detailed as "*A Git client from the makers of Sublime Text *". A snappy UI, three-way merge tool, side-by-side diffs, syntax highlighting, and more. Evaluate for free – no account, tracking, or time limits.

GitKraken and Sublime Merge can be primarily classified as "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" tools.

"Dark theme" is the top reason why over 47 developers like GitKraken, while over 2 developers mention "Speed" as the leading cause for choosing Sublime Merge.

Decisions about GitKraken and Sublime Merge

I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.

It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.
