GitPlex vs TortoiseSVN: What are the differences?
Developers describe GitPlex as "A new Git repo management server with code review". GitPlex mimics git log in web interface, with hints and auto-completes available to help user quickly constructing desired commit queries. On the other hand, TortoiseSVN is detailed as "The coolest interface to (Sub)version control". It is a really easy to use Revision control / version control / source control software for Windows. It is based on Apache™ Subversion (SVN)®; TortoiseSVN provides a nice and easy user interface for Subversion.Since it's not an integration for a specific IDE like Visual Studio, Eclipse or others, you can use it with whatever development tools you like, and with any type of file.
GitPlex and TortoiseSVN can be primarily classified as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools.
Some of the features offered by GitPlex are:
- Commit search with hints and auto-completion
- Code search by symbols, file names, and texts
- Source structure outlines (currently Java only)
On the other hand, TortoiseSVN provides the following key features:
- Easy to use. all commands are available directly from the Windows Explorer
- Powerful commit dialog. integrated spell checker for log messages
- Per project settings
