I need to install GitExtension on MacOS, but I can't find any info about this.

I found this link


after download I get compressed folder there is inside .exe file. I can't execute .exe file on macOS...

So, maybe someone uses Git Extension on his laptop, please share an experience or maybe an alternative way should be used?


Why don't you check some of the others Git visual front-ends for macOS, like:

  • Yes, I thought about it... I just get used to GitExtension... Also, I know GitKraken, but with the last update, they restricted work with private repositories... – Aleksey Timoshchenko Nov 9 '19 at 6:50
  • None of those offer side-by-side diff. – Agent_L Feb 12 at 16:23

The footnote of the How to Run addresses Mac :

macOS Mono support for Git Extensions is unknown.

Note specifically though that you at least in 5.4 must run tMono in 32bit version as the 64bit WinForm support is incomplete. Start with --arch=32. http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/supported-platforms/osx/

Also, the wikis contain only 2 results for mac:

  • Version 2.5x (release/2.5x branch): JetBrains Rider/MonoDevelop (Linux) / MS Visual Studio for Mac (Mac)

    So it is/was supported with MS Visual Studio.

  • Version 2.5x was the last cross-platform version, running both on Windows (MS .NET Framework) and on Linux/Mac (Mono).

    This branch is in maintenance mode with no significant active development planned. ...
