NUTRITIONAL FACTS

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

INOTIFY

pyinotify 0.7.1 or newer enables inotify support on Linux.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

Normally you can just do "make install" to install git-cola in your $HOME directory ($HOME/bin, $HOME/share, etc). If you want to do a global install you can do

make prefix=/usr install

You don't need to make to run it, though. git-cola is designed to run directly out of its source tree.

git clone git://github.com/git-cola/git-cola.git
git-cola/bin/git-cola
git-cola/bin/git-dag

MAC OS X

Whether you install cola yourself with make install or use the git-cola.app bundle, you will need to install Qt4 and PyQt4.

The easiest way to do this is to install homebrew and use it to install git-cola.

brew install git-cola

Once brew has installed git-cola (and its dependencies) you either use git-cola.app, run from source, or install from source via make install. You can build git-cola.app by running make git-cola.app.

Installing these packages also gives you a PyQt development environment which can be used for building your own applications or hacking on cola itself.

WINDOWS INSTALLATION

Download the latest stable Git, Python 2.x, and Py2x-PyQt4 installers

Once these are installed you can run git-cola from the Start menu or by double-clicking on the git-cola.pyw script.

You can also use python.exe to invoke the git-cola.pyw script directly from the command-line.

If you are developing git-cola on Windows you can run it from its source tree by using python.exe.

python.exe bin/git-cola

If you want to build the git-cola Installer yourself run the provided script

win32/create-installer.sh

You have to make sure that the file

/share/InnoSetup/ISCC.exe

exists. That is normally the case when you run the msysGit bash and not the Git for Windows bash (look here for the differences).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
