As new standard introduced by management we start using private git using self hosted gitlab . Digitalocean give free $10 credit that allow us to use the server and feel the ‘taste’ of collaboration using git.
Due to varied operating system we use I decide to write installation steps for Windows user.
Get latest msysgit
Click here for latest version of msysgit
Double click installer file. Click Next
Click Next after read license
Let it as if but if you want to use other folder feel free to click Browse button.
I choose windows explorer integration. I use two of them (git bash dan git gui).
Start Menu Folder. let it as is.
I choose second option. “use git from the windows command prompt”
Configuring the line ending conversions
I use “checkout windows-style, commit unix-style line endings”. Click Next.
Installer will process all chosen option and will display this view.
Git for windows successfully installed. Open the program to create / generate ssh key.
Generate SSH key
Help -> Show SSH Key -> Generate Key
Then Click “Copy to Clipboard”
Done. The steps is straightforward but as others still ask for the option I decide to share mine.
