BzrTools is a collection of useful enhancements to Bazaar. For installation instructions, see the BzrTools home page: Here is a sample of the frequently used commands it provides.


bzr shell starts up a command interpreter than understands Bazaar commands natively. This has several advantages:

  • There’s no need to type bzr at the front of every command.
  • Intelligent auto-completion is provided.
  • Commands run slightly faster as there’s no need to load Bazaar’s libraries each time.


bzr cdiff provides a colored version of bzr diff output. On GNU/Linux, UNIX and OS X, this is often used like this:

bzr cdiff | less -R
