This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.
  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

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

  • /GitOnlyOnPath - Puts gitinstall\cmd on path. This is also done by default if no package parameters are set.
  • /GitAndUnixToolsOnPath - Puts gitinstall\bin on path. This setting will override /GitOnlyOnPath.
  • /NoAutoCrlf - Ensure 'Checkout as is, commit as is'. This setting only affects new installs, it will not override an existing .gitconfig.
  • /WindowsTerminal - Makes vim use the regular Windows terminal instead of MinTTY terminal.
  • /NoShellIntegration - Disables shell integration ( "Git GUI Here" and "Git Bash Here" entries in context menus).
  • /NoCredentialManager - Disable Git Credential Manager by adding $Env:GCM_VALIDATE='false' user environment variable.
  • /NoGitLfs - Disable Git LFS installation.

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 --version 2.14.0.2

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

C:\> choco upgrade git --version 2.14.0.2

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
