Magit is an Emacs interface for Git.
With Magit, you can inspect and modify your Git repositories with Emacs. You can review and commit the changes you have made to the tracked files, for example, and you can browse the history of past changes. There is support for cherry picking, reverting, merging, rebasing, and other common Git operations.
Unlike Emacs’s native version control support (git.el), Magit can take advantage of Git’s native features without breaking compatibility with other systems.
- Review and commit the changes you have made to the tracked files.

- Automatic – commits changes immediately.
- Rewrite your commit history.

- Interface with Subversion.
- Interface with Topgit.
- General mechanism to cooperate with Git-related systems.
