Programming is hard!
At the end of the day, it is easy to forget to save our work, to commit and push to out remote GIT server.
GitBar will remind you of uncommitted repository during the day when you forget it. GitBar will watch your local git repositories and smartly send notifications when you forgot to commit your work.
> Use the today widget during the day to quickly check if some modification is not safely committed.
> Use the shortcut to quicky open the menu and access the repository that needs to be committed
# How it works
Once the git repository is added to gitbar it is watched for modification.
The state of the source is represented in the icon in gitbar
The icon shape indicates the current status of the repository
* Source is committed and modification are in sync with remote
* Source is committed but a push to remote is needed
* Source needs to be committed
GitBar uses MacOS notification to notify when a repository is left with modifications for a long time.
Clicking on the notification opens the preferred git client to quickly commit.
# Preferred Git/Terminal Client
Selecting the repository in the GitBar menu or clicking on the notifications will open the preferred git client.
The app is used as preferred client is asked the first time repository is selected. If none is selected, Finder will be used.

* fixed a problem when "sleeping" notifications
* fixed about window positioning
Ratings and Reviews
No attention to detail
$13 to watch a couple of git repos? Way too much, but it’s probably beautiful software, right? Nope. It is a MacOS System Menu app, but has a colored icon and no option to make it black/white like the Apple UX guidelines suggest. There are typos in the core functionality of the app, “Repository” is mis-spelled on the very first screen of the app.
It’s a simple app that any developer can bang out in a weekend. It’s should be free or $.99… At that price I’d give it 4 stars since there are still basic mistakes despite being such a simple App. At $12.99 it should be absolute perfection and have way more functionality.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
