Git is a version control tool that keeps track of all versions of a set of files over a period of time. Git has a unique way of thinking about and managing it’s data that sets it apart from other version control systems (VCS). Unlike other VCS, Git treats it’s data like a stream of snapshots. This means that every time the state of your project is saved, Git takes a snapshot of what your files look like at that moment. Then it stores a reference to that snapshot. If the file hasn’t changed, Git doesn’t store the file again. Instead it stores a link to the unchanged file that was previously stored. This way of handling data is different than other VCS and allows Git to build and utilize more powerful tools on top of it’s filesystem.
