Using git with ISPF

Using git with z/OS wouldn’t be possible without Rocket (or it would be more challenging).

Using git with ISPF is now a reality. I’ve been working with Henri Kuiper on an ISPF application called zigi - z/OS ISPF Git Interface. At this point, it is still a work in progress but it is usable. Among the things that you will find are:

  1. It’s a full ISPF native application
  2. ISPF statistics for managed partitioned dataset members are retained
  3. Binary datasets (e.g. load modules, object decks) are not supported at this time

Check it out at

And if you’d like to participate please join the fun.

Note: zigi does not support just any git repository - for a repository to be used by zigi the repository must be created by zigi. This could change in the future but there are valid reason for this.
