Proficiency in Git part 1

1 minutes read

Hi friends, this is the first post in my Git series. This series is for anyone because it’s basic.

Easy to understand, concise, concise. Hope to help you.

What is git?

- Distributed source management software

- Currently one of the most popular source code management software.

Install Git

I will only guide to install on Linux. As for other operating systems, the installation is similar, you can refer to Git.

For Ubuntu, Kali Linux, .. (Debian-based distributions):

$ sudo apt install git-all -y

Once installed, continue to type:

$ git --version

to check if you’ve successfully installed Git or not?

Set up Git

To use Git, you must configure its username and password.

Login Email configuration

$ git config --global "your email"

Your name configuration

$ git config --global "your name"

Because every time you perform a Push operation, Git will ask for a password again, which is quite inconvenient, so we will save a temporary password in ram to solve this problem.

$ git config --global credential.helper 'cache --timeout=18000'

Good luck.

In part 2, we will learn some basic git commands.
