Configure Git

Git needs to know some basic information. This is how you set them up:


git config --global user.name "$FirstName $LastName"
git config --global user.email your@email.com
git config --global core.editor nano
Of course it's up to you what editor you want to use with "git".

Using notepad++ with git:


git config --global core.editor "'C:/Program Files (x86)/Notepad++/notepad++.exe' -multiInst -nosession"
Check your settings:


git config --global -l
This is what it looks like on my machine:


$ git config --global -l
user.name=Andreas Schipplock
user.email=foo@example.com
core.editor=nano
