Overview[edit]

  • These instructions are for using the popular Git Extentions for Windows to work with the reSIProcate source tree in git
  • Download the "complete" MSI, it includes the Git and Kdiff installers too
  • KDiff Installer becomes hidden under Git Extensions progress window, must look for it underneath or it will appear to sit there forever
  • must not commit to repository using CRLF, use option 1 if not sure
  • if you change any installation paths, you also have to specify them in the profile setup later
  • all options can be changed easily later
  • When finished installing Git Extensions, proceed to make a Git clone of the reSIProcate project

  • If you have your own copy of git or a diff tool already, you don't need these, otherwise, select them and you can change them later:

  • Make sure it matches your Visual Studio installation, if any:

  • Here is the place where you have to look for the KDiff setup window hidden underneath, otherwise it just appears to be stuck here:

  • Choosing the second option is safe and is more convenient:

  • Do not choose the third option, CRLF should not be committed to the repository
  • Most people use the first option
  • If your local filesystem is shared between Linux and Windows environments (e.g. using Samba shared folders), you may want to use the second option:
