Fossil: A Local Source Code Repository
Git has become the de facto standard for web development source control. However, there are times when you don’t need all its features and complexity. If you’re developing alone on a single machine, and want a repository mainly for backup and comparison, consider a simpler application like Fossil. It’s an easy installation: you drop a single executable file anywhere in your system path. There are downloadable ready-to-run binaries available for Linux, Mac, Windows, and BSD, or you can compile it yourself.
