www and settings sources

Today I learned how difficult it is to manage a git repo in Windows. It turns out SmartGit can not even generate diffs. Does anybody know a better alternative that would work with little effort on any operating system?

Perhaps the best bet would be the git tools that come together with IDEs. Eclipse users would use the egit plugin.

QtCreator is also slim enough to be used only as git tool. ( I don't know though, how slim the download can be made ;-) )

I have no idea but I asked my brother who is a computer engineer. He suggested:
"using kdiff3 for visual diff. Command prompt "git difftool" should open the visual diff tool. For easy Windows integration tortoisegit can be used."

Can someone try to see if tortoisegit is adequate? I have no Windowses available.

Just clone git://git.longturn.org/longturn-www.git , edit some file in any way, and try to create a diff.

Akfaew, to use git like UNIX, just install CygWin+git (from cygwin repository) or Msysgit ( I think you may need there Msys to get bash support )

Yea, that's another way around, but tortoisegit works well too.
