  • In fact, I have found that as I understand git better, what happens is I understand its simplicity ever better – not its complexity. It is difficult to learn because its command line interface obscures the underlying simplicity of its repository format. Understanding that format and relating what a command does to that format is the key to understanding git, which is actually much easier than it initially seems. I have actually toyed with the idea of reimplementing the format in pure Perl – it wouldn’t take more than a few days, that’s how simple git is.

    • Aye. I should perhaps add that I was referring to the complexity of managing distributed changes to a common file tree, not the complexity of git (which I agree has a very simple design).
