What are main differences between Git, GitHub and Bitbucket resp Gitkraken? And also Git and Mercurial

Mon Dec 17, 2018 4:12 pm

dear experts,

pretty new to Git and Github and bitbucket:

The question is What are main differences between Git, GitHub and Bitbucket resp Gitkraken? And also Git and Mercurial. Git and mercurial(hg) - both are the actual tools for version controll. In fact both them can be called "Distributed Version control system-tolls",

generally spoken:

- while Github and Bitbucket are 'services' for hosting of repositories.
- Github provides git repositories hosting while Bitbucket offers both git and hg repositories hosting.
- Git and hg seem to be a bit different - regarding the way they work internally.

first of all: - afaik i can use Bitbucket with GIT - is this true?

So, these are some of the major differences. There are prolly several other minor differences that one might realize once you use both of them. The question is: Which Git GUI should I use with GitHub, Bitbucket or GitLab?
A friend of me told me that i should run (use) GitKraken.

Gitkraken is told to be a commercial project that only wants to make mone. is this true!?

but technically spoken gitkraken has some interesting features.

GitKraken connects to all 3 to clone/add repos, create/view PRs & more. Free for Windows and Linux!

So the question is: should loook at gitkranken or stay with GIT, Github and Bitucekt

and leave gitkraken as a tiny commeercial project that is not worth looking at

I don't know all the answers to your questions.

Didn't we already have this discussion?

Git is a source code management system.

Mercurial is a source code management system.

Neither of them need anything else to be useful.

Github and Bitbucket are cloud services that will host git and/or mercurial. If you need that.

Take your pick. I like git and I like github for it's issue management system.

Price may be a determining factor.

Despite using git, mercurial and others for many years I had never heard of gitkraken. Seems to be some closed source only git client. As such is of no interest at all.
