How to use GIT?

Recommended Posts

How to get the source code from GIT.

Windows:

1. Download and install Tortoise GIT: http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/

2. Make sure your source directory points to: https://github.com/raduprv/Eternal-Lands.git

3. Once installed and you want to get the code again, right click on the directory where it is on your computer and choose TortoiseGit.

4. Choose Pull from the git menu. Make sure Remote is checked and it is set to origin. Remove branch should say master.

Ok I got it to work using the tortoise git program..which behaves just like tortoise cvs. I was trying to use the GIT gui and couldn't get it working except for the initial download.

 

If anyone wants to post instructions for other OS's here please do so and I'll add it to the top post.

Git from a command line

Download and install a copy of Git for your OS: http://git-scm.com/download (or use your system's package manager to install it.)

Test the install:

git version

If the git command is not found, add the git install directory to your path (if you don't know how to edit your path, try a GUI tool like Tortoise Git.)

To create a local copy of the repository initially (this will create an elc directory/folder in whatever location you're in when you run it:)

git clone https://github.com/raduprv/Eternal-Lands.git elc

To update your local copy (from within the elc directory created above:)

git pull
