Git for Windows focuses on offering a lightweight, native set of tools that bring the full feature set of the Git SCM to Windows while providing appropriate user interfaces for experienced Git users and novices alike.

Features

  • Git BASH: Git for Windows provides a BASH emulation used to run Git from the command line. *NIX users should feel right at home, as the BASH emulation behaves just like the "git" command in LINUX and UNIX environments.
  • Git GUI: As Windows users commonly expect graphical user interfaces, Git for Windows also provides the Git GUI, a powerful alternative to Git BASH, offering a graphical version of just about every Git command line function, as well as comprehensive visual diff tools.
  • Shell Integration: Simply right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer to access the BASH or GUI.

Package parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /GitOnlyOnPath - this puts gitinstall\cmd on path. This is also done by default if no package parameters are set.
  • /GitAndUnixToolsOnPath - this puts gitinstall\bin on path. This setting will override /GitOnlyOnPath.
  • /NoAutoCrlf - this setting only affects new installs, it will not override an existing .gitconfig. This will ensure 'Checkout as is, commit as is'

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of -params.
For example: -params '"/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath /NoAutoCrlf"'.

Notes

The package uses default install options minus cheetah integration and desktop icons. Cheetah prevents a good upgrade scenario, so it has been removed.

To install Git, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install git

To upgrade Git, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade git
