I do not know the GIT program, so i do not know how to install it correctly for the Spatial OS needs

So in the attached IMAGE 1 there are 8 options to choise, what is the right option?

And in the attached IMAGE 2 there are 3 options, what to choose?

Hey @AkenStyle,

There’s no wrong answer to these questions, the answer depends on your preferences and what you want to do with Git. That said, I’d recommend:

  • Use Vim as Git’s default editor. Vim can sometimes be confusing but it’s so widely used that you can easily google a solution to any problems you have while using it.
  • Select Use Git from the command line and also from 3rd-party software. This means that you’ll be able to run git commands from the terminal of your choice, whether that be PowerShell, Command Prompt or any other. It also means that third party software like Visual Studio can provide you GUI that makes git easier to use.
