We all know it: the git command line tool is extremly powerful, and chances are that you will not need any other tool for doing the job. However, it is true that performing some tasks, like navigating the repository history, is more intuitive using software such as Gitkraken or even gitk.

Instead of selling your soul and embracing unholy tools like those, it is possible to use tig, a command line tool based on ncurses (so it is not simply text-based, including quasi-graphical elements).
