SourceTree a Git Browser Tool - Free, just announced.

This is pretty much the best source code control client I've tried.  Most of my team agrees.  It makes things simple and visual for new users, has all the power for advanced users, and ties into your accounts on GitHub and Bitbucket to make things easy.

Could someone provide Labview Tortoise Git package for LabVIEW 2012, please?

I use it with newer LabVIEW releases, but I have an old project in LV 2012 that I can't port to another LV version.

Are you able to utilize LV Merge and LV Compare with Sourcetree using Embedded Git?

I just started looking at Bitbucket and the other Atlassian tools since I found NASA supplies them to us through a discounted and APPROVED channel for secure code hosting.


I really like the Sourcetree interface but haven't found a clear setup instruction for getting Sourcetree to work with LV Compare and LV Merge.  I have found the Endigit blog ( on the subject - but I must be missing a component as I am still getting error 7 on the LV Merge when invoking Actions>Resolve Conflicts>Launch External Merge tool.

FWIW, I prefer Git Tower.

GitTower doesn't look to be free, though it does look really nice!

I'd have to run that by management.

Replying to myself to close this loop. 


I found that NI is providing a LabVIEW based solution to the LV Compare and LV Merge tool arguments issue.  They have provided the LabVIEW code in a GIT repository.  I just downloaded it and followed the instructions for building the EXEs, distributions and installer on my system and change the Sourcetree Diff and Merge callouts as specified.

I tried out the previous steps I implemented changing code in two local repos that point to the same remote repo, simulating two developers working on the same VI and committing/pushing in order to generate a conflict.  I was then able to leverage the Launch External Merge tool under Actions>Resolve Conflicts and was able to merge the changes successfully.


Here is the link to the GIT repository provided by NI:
