Best Git graphical client to use with Delphi and other projects?

We are making the switch from SVN to Git for our Delphi work (25% of what we do), as well as all sorts of non-Delphi things (75% of what we do). There are many graphical clients to choose from, and we are hoping to pick one for the team so we have only one to officially recommend and support.

* Do you have a recommendation for a Git graphical client that works well with Delphi, or in general is just great?
* Perhaps you know ones to be sure to stay away from?

We are looking for something that performs quickly with large files / "Large File Support", and ones that handle branching and merging with multiple developers well.

We don't mind paying money for the best tools.

So far, we are looking at SourceTree, TortoiseGit, GitKracken and Tower.

Thanks!

Carl.

What about Delphi's own built-in Git integration?

That looks good to explore for Delphi specific stuff, but Delphi is only about 25% of what we would be using it for. Still, I'll have to check that out. Thanks!

Indeed. It makes using Git quite easy.

I swear by SourceTree, mainly because I run it from my Mac (I have Windows VMs for Delphi) and like you, have other
non-Delphi projects and files, so I can do everything in one place.

TortoiseGit

The Tortoise system works very well for me, both SVN and Git variants. Built into the file explorer (though I mainly use Directory Opus), and thus works where you want to see it, right with your files.
