Install How to install git on Windows, Mac, or Linux

Check your machine’s current git version:

command line
git config --global user.name "Jeff Delaney"
git config --global user.email "hello@fireship.io"

Set a Username & Email

command line
git cong 

Windows Installation

On Windows, I recommend downloading Git for Windows. In addition, you may want to use git-bash as your terminal (like me), but that is optional - and check out bash in 100 seconds.

Mac Installation

On MacOS, I recommend installing git with Homebrew.

command line
brew install git

Linux Installation

See install instructions for Linux.
