lgit-rs is a powerful, opinionated command-line interface (CLI) tool, designed to simplify the management of git repositories. It provides a set of commands that streamline common git operations, making your workflow more efficient.


  • Autosquash: Automatically squash all fixup commits in the current branch.
  • Branch: Quickly create a new branch from a freshly pulled BASE branch.
  • Checkout: Checkout a branch by name, or by selecting from a list of all branches.
  • DeleteBranches: Safely delete all branches for which remotes are gone. Use with caution!
  • Fixup: Commit as a fixup, simplifying your commit history.
  • Rebase: Rebase the current branch on top of freshly pulled BASE branch with a single command.



lgit-rs requires git to be installed on your system. You can check if git is installed by running the following command:

git --version


Archives of precompiled binaries for lgit are available for Windows, macOS and Linux.

Installing lgit-rs through Cargo is the easiest way to get started. You can install it by running the following command:

Building from source

Each command has a dedicated help page that can be accessed by running lgit <command> --help. For example:
