AddictArts's Review of SnailgitReviewed on 4/30/20 1:44 PM
The application has some nice features and use if you ignore the CPU and Memory high usage. It uses Gigabytes of memory for a cache process. When I enable it, this usage is higher than anyother application I use. Higher than Google Chrome with 30 tabs open, higher than Unreal Engine 4 Editor. It really is a dissapointment and I like using the context menu. I don’t care about the colored finder items and wish there was an option to keep the context menu, but loose the colored icon overlays. I hope this gets a fix, the resource usage is way out of control. It needs to be tested against big git repositories. I can’t recommend it, I want to, but it is not usable. This is my experience on Yosemite.

I’ve had issues with the functionality dropping off and on. I would *not* call this a stable product. For the free version that’s to be expected and is not a big deal. I’m routinely having to uncheck and recheck the extension option. While I appreciate it wanting to behave like TortoiseSVN.. it most certainly does not meet it in terms of stability.

The new update causes the snailGit take a lot of CPU and memory resources. The previous version was working fine. Now it useless app. Please fix it.

This is the best alternative to TortoiseGit (for Windows) that I have found. Integrates directly into Finder, so that right-clicking a local copy of a repository gives you access to basic Git functions. A lite GUI and integration with your favorite diffing software make this a very valuable tool for developers that use git on a daily basis. The devs continue to make improvements (thanks!) that make the worflow smoother. This most recent version includes several enhancements and is mostly bug-free. CPU/memory issues from a couple versions back were completely resolved, I have not seen them recur. I do experience an occassional bug where my system appears to “forget” that directories are working copies, and I no longer get the SnailGit options in the right-click menus. Closing Finder, Force-Quitting SnailGit, starting SnailGit again, and then starting Finder again fixes this sometimes. I use TotalFinder, which may or may not be related.
