As a user, I want GitKraken to support the Mac M1 ARM processor.
While this request is considered, GitKraken should work okay with the new Mac M1 ARM processor, as Apple is emulating for non-ARM software. Make sure to run the terminal command as noted in this blog post to avoid performance impacts when using the Big Sur OS.https://blog.axosoft.com/workaround-gitkraken-big-sur-issues/
One key reason I want this is because git pre-commit hooks are running in Rosetta instead of in the native environment due to GitKraken running in Rosetta. This causes problems when tooling for a repo's tests are only setup on the native side.
Oh yes, please. Native support for M1 instead of the emulation, and by that enormous performance and energy efficiency gain would be even worth paying double price for me.
+1 for native M1 support!Performance and energy gains would be huge. I'm sure others are like me and have GitKraken always open in another window. With Rosetta the performance hits are real.
It works, yes. But the current level of resource consumption is unacceptable. I love using GitKraken, I've caught myself using the CLI way too often nowadays because GitKraken has been too unresponsive, which makes me wonder if going back to CLI (or another GUI) is an option.
As per last comment on the now very old Github Issue... Other Electron apps seem to work just fine, so indeed wondering whether it's just a GitKraken thing..
Hi, apart from Electron which has added support for M1 quite some time ago, I hope there aren't many native components you use (which would be reason for delay)? FYI, GitKraken is the **only** dev tool I run on my M1 which is not native. Please look into this.
adding my self to the list of whom would appreciate a silicon version
Hello! It will be great if windows on arm support will be provided as well.
Now GitKraken is the last app not supporting ARM on my Mac, significantly reducing battery life.Please, update.
I would like to chime in as well. GitKraken seems to be the last dev tool relevant to me that is not yet native. I'm sure that this will change in the near future!
8.0 was released today, but still no plan for Apple Silicon?
It is almost a year since Apple released M1 (Nov 10, 2020), and now there are a lot of developers that are using GitKraken on ARM devices. Not all of them are thinking that any comment on this board can change something. But there are a few of us who are trying to get the best user experience. And thus is native ARM support, which will allow us to use GitKraken without high battery consumption, freezes, and random memory leaks caused by Rosetta 2 environment.As for your roadmap, it is said that you are working on quality improvements ('In the works section', https://www.gitkraken.com/git-client/roadmap). I hope, that this means that Apple Silicon (M1, ARM, arm, etc) support is included.I do not know the inner structure of GitKraken Dev Team, but it should not be a big effort to delegate to a subteam:- investigation on ARM support;- publishing ARM support blockers (so that at least open source dependencies will be fixed sooner);- include ARM support to the closest milestone.
What baffles me isn't the fact that this hasn't been implemented yet. It's the lack of communication from the GitKraken team for the last 3 months. We are not even sure whether they are actually working on this, given that the request is still listed as "Under consideration".
We run dev tools within an emulator on M1 tools, which means that Rosetta does not work for us. ARM Native support would allow us to use GitKraken again, which would be extremely nice.
This is the literal reason my team won't be renewing our license. Every last one of your competitors has an ARM-native build, as well as every library you depend on. The platform has been out for over a year, and your solution to people who want a native ARM build is that they should run it in an emulator? Even though Rosetta 2 is pretty well done, that's the same as if you were to stop releasing anything but your Windows client and told your non-Windows customers to run it in Wine. Rosetta 2 is meant as a stopgap so things work while developers port their apps. It's not a long-term solution and will be removed from future versions of macOS. (If the original Rosetta's sunset timeline during the transition to i386 is anything to go by, you've got about another year).Waiting this long just goes to show how little you actually care about your customers.
Thank you everyone for your enthusiastic interest for this feature request. The status of this item has been updated to "Planned" from "Under Consideration" and is now in active development. We appreciate your patience as we update dependencies and prepare our systems to support this build.
