3.1.1 Installing Git

On UNIX systems (such as GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD), the easiest way to download and install Git is through a package manager. Alternatively, you can visit the Git website for downloadable installers.

For convenience, you may also install a graphical front-end to Git. Packaged in the installers come gitk (for browsing the history) and git-gui (for committing). Git’s official website provides a list of GUI clients, including free software for various platforms.
