Git For Windows

Source control is at the heart of every developer’s workflow and the chances are in 2015 that SCM of choice will be git. Nevertheless while most of us develop on the windows platform somehow we ended-up with git releases lagging behind the Linux versions quite substantially, you can see this on the official site still at www.git-scm.com where the download is marooned at 1.9.5 whilst the Linux version powers ahead on version 2.4.1.

Fortunately help is at hand and that is in the shape of Git for Windows which not only keeps up with the Linux version but comes with a very nice 64bit bash emulator and as I understand it is due to replace the original windows git as the de facto git release for the windows platform in a matter of months.

So far I’m loving it.

Intellij Users: Intellij uses the git installed on your computer as opposed to its own and will be expecting the classic location. Go to settings/Version Control/Git and change the Path to C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.exe
