Code reviewing git commits

On a weekly basis, I am code reviewing hundreds of commits on a dozen separate projects managed by git. So far I have bounced between the following tools:

  • TextMate plus the TextMate git bundle
  • Emacs (git mode ships with git itself)
  • gitk

This week I am going to try GitNub.

The needs of a code reviewer are different from the needs of a developer. What I think I want is:

  • beautiful Mac interface
  • keyboard access to everything
  • quick ability to move from viewing a point in time (one commit) to a point in space (one file), and back again
  • easy navigation into an editor of choice

What works for you?
