sudo apt-get install git-core
You may also want to install gitk and git gui
sudo apt-get install gitk sudo apt-get install git-gui
- These instructions are a useful guide to using git on Windows.
- Install msysgit
- During the installation, make sure you add Windows Explorer integration, selecting both "Add Git Bash Here" and "Add Git GUI Here"
- Once you've installed msysgit, you can right-click on any folder to open Git GUI (graphical user interface to git) or Git Bash (console interface to git)
- Selecting "git bash" allows you to enter the git commands listed in these wiki pages
- TubeTK also requires svn (subversion): on Windows, you can try Collabnet Subversion Edge (the command-line client is sufficient)
On Linux, we provide a script to confirm your git environment:
cd foo/tubetk/Utilities ./SetupForDevelopment.sh
Alternatively, you can use a manual setup method...
These steps are a one-time setup per-user per-machine.
--global option stores the configuration settings in
~/.gitconfig in your home directory so that they apply to all repositories.
We require all commits in TubeTK to record valid author/committer name and email information. Use git config to introduce yourself to Git:
$ git config --global user.name "Your Name" $ git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Note that "Your Name" is your real name (e.g. "John Doe", not "jdoe"). While you're at it, optionally enable color output from Git commands:
$ git config --global color.ui auto
If less displays strange characters and no color, your LESS environment variable may already be set. You can override the less options with:
$ git config --global core.pager "less -FXRS"
