Git on Mac OS X

On Mac OS X, you can get Git using MacPorts. After installing MacPorts, do:

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port sync
sudo port install git-core
add /opt/local/bin to your PATH

Note that this also adds another ssh into your path. You can safely remove /opt/local/bin/ssh* /opt/local/bin/scp /opt/local/bin/sftp (especially if you want to use Leopard's built-in ssh-agent).

Git on Windows

For Windows there exists a binary installer

NOTE: When the installer presents you with the option of how to put Git into your PATH choose the second option of putting only Git commands into your path.

Git on Linux

All major Linux distributions offer up-to-date packages of Git. Use your distribution specific package manager to install Git. Note that on Debian based distributions the Git package is actually called git-core.

Building Git from Source

Git is easy to build from source. Just download the latest release from, unpack the sources, run configure followed by make followed by make install. This will install it locally into your home directory, the binaries end up in $HOME/bin.
