verco workflow


  • One interface for many version control backends
  • Support for Git, Mercurial (Hg) and Plastic SCM
  • Supported actions:
    • status
    • revision history
    • revision details
    • discard changes
    • checkout revision
    • checkin changes
    • branch and tag management (list/create/delete)
    • merge
    • push/pull/fetch
  • Everything accessible through at most two keys


  • implement everyday version control actions (opinionated)
  • cross-platform (Windows, Linux, BSD, Mac)
  • responsive ui even when it's executing some heavy operation
  • zero dependencies (besides platform libs)

Non Goals

  • cover all api surface of a given version control
  • custom keybindings (we implement redundant keybindings, though)
  • configuration file/environment var (cli options is fine)
  • clone, repo init and complex actions (should be left for their respective cli)
  • rebase support


This project uses Cargo and pure Rust stable and works on latest versions of Windows, Mac, Linux and BSD.

Its only dependencies are:


You can either install it via cargo or download the binaries from github releases.

If you go the cargo route, you need to have it installed (usually using rustup). In a terminal, run this command to install verco:

cargo install verco

Then you'll be able to run verco from whichever directory you in.
