Installing on Ubuntu or Debian
Since Sat, 28 Dec 2013 12:45:13 +0100 Debian switched versions. The nvie version is no longer installed.
From the Debian Changelog:
- New upstream release, moving to Peter van der Does' version.
Users of Debian-based Linuxes testing and unstable can use the apt-get tool to
install gitflow from the Debian repository:
$ apt-get install git-flow
For Debian stable, one can either use the git flow installer, or the Debian package from unstable (it works just fine on stable too).
Installing on Archlinux
Users of Archlinux can use packer as a tool to get AUR packages.
$ yaourt -S gitflow-avh
Installing on Fedora
Users of Fedora 26 & 27 (or later) can use dnf as a tool to get RPM packages.
$ sudo dnf install gitflow
Also For CentOS/Redhat, you can find this RPM using the EPEL repo.
Installing on openSUSE
Users of openSUSE can use
zypper as a tool to get the RPM packages.
$ zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/tools:/scm/openSUSE_13.1/ devel:tools:scm $ zypper in git-flow
For versions other than 13.1 the URL to the devel:tools:scm repository needs to be adjusted.
Installing on Gentoo Linux
Users of Gentoo may install git-flow using Portage:
$ emerge --ask git-flow
Installing on FreeBSD
Users of FreeBSD may install git-flow using pkg:
$ pkg install gitflow
Under other Linuxes, the easiest way to install git-flow is using Rick Osborne's excellent git-flow installer, which can perform system-wide installation like so:
$ curl -OL https://raw.github.com/nvie/gitflow/develop/contrib/gitflow-installer.sh $ chmod +x gitflow-installer.sh $ sudo ./gitflow-installer.sh
For user installation, for example in
$ INSTALL_PREFIX=~/bin ./gitflow-installer.sh
And if the installation directory (here,
~/bin) is in the user's path, git will find the git-flow extensions.
