Darcs

5.0

Darcs is a free and open source, cross-platform version control system, like git, mercurial or subversion but with a very different approach. Thanks to its focus on changes rather than snapshots, Darcs can offer a freer way of working, and a simpler user interface.

Darcs review by David M. P.

"Great for personal VC"

What do you like best?

Does an incredible job of keeping all of your ongoing work together and still separable. No more disjointed branches and continual rebasing.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes can be finicky about letting you rollback or apply patches selectively (demands dependent patches). Managing this can require careful attention to breaking up commits.

Managing my pending work independently from primary organizational source control.
