GVFS vs rebase-editor: What are the differences?
What is GVFS? Git Virtual File System (by Microsoft). GVFS virtualizes the file system beneath your git repo so that git and all tools see a fully hydrated repo, but GVFS only downloads objects as they are needed. GVFS also manages git's sparse-checkout to ensure that git operations like status, checkout, etc., can be as quick as possible.
What is rebase-editor? Rebase-editor, a simple CLI app specifically for Git interactive rebase. Simple terminal based sequence editor for git interactive rebase. Written in Node.js, published to npm, uses terminal-kit.
GVFS and rebase-editor can be primarily classified as "Git" tools.
GVFS and rebase-editor are both open source tools. It seems that GVFS with 4.81K GitHub stars and 358 forks on GitHub has more adoption than rebase-editor with 425 GitHub stars and 10 GitHub forks.
