Pro Git, Second Edition
Welcome to the second edition of the Pro Git book.
You can find this book online at: http://git-scm.com/book
Like the first edition, the second edition of Pro Git is open source under a Creative Commons license.
A couple of things have changed since open sourcing the first edition. For one, we’ve moved from Markdown to the amazing Asciidoc format for the text of the book. We’ve also moved to using O’Reilly’s Atlas platform for generating continuous builds of the book so all major formats are always available in every language.
We’ve also moved to keeping the translations in separate repositories rather than subdirectories of the English repository. See the Contributing document for more information.
How To Generate the Book
There are two ways to generate e-book content from this source code.
The easiest way is simply to let us do it. A robot is standing by to look for new work on the main branch and automatically build it for everyone.
The other way to generate e-book files is to do so manually with Asciidoctor. If you run the following you may actually get HTML, Epub, Mobi and PDF output files:
$ bundle install $ bundle exec rake book:build Converting to HTML... -- HTML output at progit.html Converting to EPub... -- Epub output at progit.epub Converting to Mobi (kf8)... -- Mobi output at progit.mobi Converting to PDF... -- PDF output at progit.pdf
