Mac OS X
If you have Homebrew installed, you know the drill:
$ brew install git
You can also download the precompiled installer and install git like most applications.
Linux / Mac
Get down with your geeky self and install git from source
The most popular way to run git in windows is mysysgit
It’s a good idea to set some global setting like so:
$ git config --global user.name "rpflo" $ git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"

$ git config --global core.autocrlf input
That’s it! You’re ready to git it on. Continue on to Git for beginners
