tag: v0.3
readme.md

posh-git

A set of PowerShell scripts which provide Git/PowerShell integration

Prompt for Git repositories

The prompt within Git repositories can show the current branch and the state of files (additions, modifications, deletions) within.

Tab completion

Provides tab completion for common commands when using git.
E.g. git ch<tab> --> git checkout

Usage

See profile.example.ps1 as to how you can integrate the tab completion and/or git prompt into your own profile. Prompt formatting, among other things, can be customized using $GitPromptSettings, $GitTabSettings and $TortoiseGitSettings.

Installing

  1. Verify you have PowerShell 2.0 or better with $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

  2. Verify execution of scripts is allowed with Get-ExecutionPolicy (should be RemoteSigned or Unrestricted). If scripts are not enabled, run PowerShell as Administrator and call Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Confirm.

  3. Verify that git can be run from PowerShell. If the command is not found, you will need to add a git alias or add %ProgramFiles%\Git\cmd to your PATH environment variable.

  4. Clone the posh-git repository to your local machine.

  5. From the posh-git repository directory, run .\install.ps1.

  6. Enjoy!
