I want to use git with my godot project, and the documentation says to use the godot-git-plugin available on github. From what i understand the plugin uses its own implementation of git. But i could just use my already installed git inside a terminal for my projects ?
Except the plugin’s gui, can the plugin do more than normal git ? I don’t want to use a plugin if i don’t need to.

Your assumptions are correct because you are not bound by the plugin, it just makes it easier to use git with Godot especially for entry level users (to git) and you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to.

Infact made my own plugin that can call git-gui as well since godot-git is seriously lacking IMHO. That said use what you’re familiar or proficient in
