Retcon Beta

Nathan Manceaux-Panot (Mastodon):

Retcon makes rewriting git history effortless.

Move a commit back in time with a single drag-and-drop. Squash, edit or delete in a few keystrokes. In place—no need to enter a special mode and lose all context. Skip rigidly planning everything ahead, and instead manipulate with instant feedback.

Then change your mind: undo anything with ⌘Z, with step-by-step granularity. Never waste time starting a rewrite over; instead, just edit that one line, in that one file, in that one conflict resolution, and then move on.

Happy to see git UI that makes these things easier. GitUp and its open source GitUpKit do this really well, too, and I had secretly hoped that more clients would pick this up. Took a while :)
