Setting Up Git

Mac Users

  1. Open a new terminal window.

  2. Type the command, git --version, in the terminal.

  3. If the output includes a Git version, like the code below, then you are ready to use Git!

    LaunchCode-Super-Computer:~ launchcode-student$ git --version
    git version 2.6.4 (Apple Git-63)
  4. If the output does not include a Git version, then a popup will open and ask you to install Developer Tools. Click "Install"!

  5. After the installation is done, you can double check that it worked by typing git --version and the version of Git will be part of the output!

Windows Users

Since you already installed Git Bash when you set up your terminal, you are good to go!
