In the educational materials, GitFlow tree looks like this:


In reality, using any Git GUI, it looks way messy (image is taken from a random site):

My question: is there any Git GUI which displays gitflow-compliant tree as it's displayed in educational materials? Master branch at the right, develop branch at the middle etc.?

    Why not fix the educational materials? – CPerkins Jul 14 '16 at 15:04
  • Educational materials looks pretty, branches are well-organized. I like them. That's how real GIT tools should look like. – ern0 Jul 14 '16 at 19:59
  • I disagree that they're "pretty". I think they follow the intentionally sloppy aesthetic that's popular these days, trying to look like something drawn with a crayon on a paper placemat. Very "hip". Personally, I like the way the actual git guis do it; from left to right, clean and crisp. Plus the layout won't go to garbage as quickly if the commit comments are long. But it's your request. Good luck with it. – CPerkins Jul 14 '16 at 20:55
  • I am not talking about hipster styling of nodes and edges, it's the "whatever" category. Commit comments should be placed smart way :) – ern0 Jul 15 '16 at 7:45
  • Right. "Smart", as in "the way people read things". Like left to right. Master on left, branches on right. And again, good luck. – CPerkins Jul 15 '16 at 14:22
