Hyper vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
What is Hyper? On-Demand Container, Per-Second Billing. Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries.
What is SourceTree? A free Git GUI client for Windows and macOS. Use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.
Hyper belongs to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack, while SourceTree can be primarily classified under "Source Code Management Desktop Apps".
Some of the features offered by Hyper are:
- Hyper is able to launch instances in sub-second. Also, Hyper requires the minimal resource footprint: ~12MB mem
- Hyper is immune from the "shared kernel" problem in container
- Hyper is hypervisor agnostic
On the other hand, SourceTree provides the following key features:
- Full-powered DVCS
- Create, clone, commit, push, pull, merge, and more are all just a click away.
- Review your outgoing and incoming changesets, cherry-pick between branches, patch handling, rebase, stash, shelve, and much more.

GitKraken is the best git client so far. The user interface is very friendly. Everything is easy to do with this tool. A branch tree vizualization is very clear. I've tried SourceTree and I got lost in such many panels. Also performance of SourceTree is not as goot as GitKraken. I like Sublime Merge but it doesn't have so many features as the other tools. I've choosen GitKraken and as bonus I got GitKraken Glo that is the next perfect tool.
Tower appears to be between GitKraken and SourceTree in detail, but gave two scary error dialogs when attempting to merge resulted in a conflict. Doing the same in SourceTree just worked and showed the conflict in its handy file view that's always visible (unlike Tower's mere "Merge branch 'X' into develop" message when the commit is selected).
Both GitKraken and Tower lack the commit hash in their history overview, requiring one to select a commit to see it.
GitKraken appears to be the only Windows 10 Git GUI suitable for night shifts, but like Tower is only free for 30 days, unlike SourceTree.
Used by various PrometheanTV technical staff to interface and interact with the Git Source Control service.
Since being familiar to git CLI, I nearly never open it again except using it as a diff tool.
Used Source Tree to maintain version / commit / pull request , merge of codes for a team.
