Visual version control system

Hello everybody,

I’m studying at University of Applying Science Potsdam and writing my bachelor thesis on the topic “Visual version control system for type design”. The aim of the work is a prototype of a GUI for VC system that can be integrated in a type design workflow.

Here is a list of Glyphs related projects I have found so far:

  1. Definitely CommitGlyphs and MergeGlyphs
  2. SaveToGit plugin by Jens Kutilek
  3. Git for Type Designers by Frank Grießhammer

Could you please tell me if I have overlooked anything?

Thanks in advance.

Have a look at the package format, new in Glyphs 3. This format is much better suited for a version control workflow than a standard *.glyphs file.

Looking forward to reading your thesis on the topic!

Thank you so much for the response and the links. I’ll definitely have a look.
Your approach to customise code diff labels looks really interesting!
