GitPad.exe - Use Notepad as your Git commit editor
This single executable allows you to use Notepad as your editor any time Git requires one (commits, interactive rebase, etc).
How to install (short version)
Notepad sucks! What about $FAVORITE_EDITOR instead?
Good news! As of GitPad 1.2, the default editor will be whatever editor is associated with .txt files. Normally, that's Notepad, but if you like a different editor, you can now use that instead.
How to install (long version)
Just copy GitPad.exe to a folder and double-click on it. It will install itself into your Application Data directory (%AppData%) - if your default editor is not set, GitPad.exe will set itself to EDITOR via setting an Environment Variable on your user profile.
What do I need to use this?
GitPad requires .NET 2.0 or higher.
How to uninstall
Remove HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment\EDITOR from the registry and reboot your system.
