What is it? Where can you get it? And why you need it? Some of these questions might go through your head when you hear the name Git.
Is it free?
Git is an open-source version control system that is designed to handle everything from small to very large projects! And yes, it’s free! Why you need it? Well, let me tell you why it’s good to have it! Since Git is used in Game Development and in many other places to transfer files from one computer to others in seconds!
And where can you get Git?
You can download Git from its own site from the Latest source Release,
link below! :)
For Windows, you can download Git from here (Shown above). After you click it, it will start downloading the install file automatically! Easy right? There are also options to download either 32-bit or 64-bit Git Version. And Git for Windows Portable (“thumbdrive edition”).
But! If you have Mac? Don’t worry, there’s one for you too!
You can download it from the link below! :)
After you downloaded the Git-version-number-bit-versio.exe. The only thing left to do is to install it and we can use it!
In the Downloads folder, you can find the exe file and start installing.
Git is pretty easy to install, you don’t need to change any of the options which will be shown as you go further while Installing Git. One thing that I changed was the folder where I installed it. So my softwares are in a certain order on my computer.
After you have installed Git, you can run GitBash!
And it looks like this! :)
Nice! The “Hardest” part is done, haha. Then on to how to use Git.
Something to look forward to from the next article, what is a repository? What is a directory and how to navigate in them?
