Installing GIT on OS-X In 3 Minutes

How to install GIT on OS-X in under 3 minutes:

curl -O
tar xzvf git-1.7.1.tar.gz
cd git-1.7.1
make configure
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
NO_MSGFMT=yes make prefix=/usr/local all
sudo make install
Git should be installed on your OS-X now, which you can verify by issuing: git --version command in Terminal. However, it’s a good idea to also pre-configure the default username and e-mail for your Git installation:

git config --global "Your Firstname Lastname"
git config --global ""
git config --global --list
I personally, also like to set:

git config --global color.ui "auto"
