3.1.1 Installing Git
On UNIX systems (such as GNU/Linux, macOS, 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)
git-gui (for committing). Git’s official website provides a
list of GUI clients,
including free software for various platforms.
