What is Breezy?

Breezy is a version control system implemented in Python with multi-format support and an emphasis on hackability.

Currently, Breezy has built-in support for the Git and Bazaar file formats and network protocols.


You can install Breezy:

  • From source, by downloading the tarball from Launchpad
  • From pip by running pip install breezy
  • From unstable or testing on Debian
  • From the PPA on Launchpad

Please note that Windows is not yet supported.

Getting Started

If you've used a distributed version control system before, read Breezy in 5 minutes.

Alternatively, we have a longer tutorial that also provides an introduction to working with a distributed version control system.


If you'd like to contribute to Breezy, have a look at the contribution quickstart and the developer documentation.


You can also reach us on the Bazaar mailing list and on the #breezy IRC channel on OFTC (also available on Matrix as #breezy:matrix.org).
