Installation guide

NOTE: pipx and gitutor work with Python3.6+

In order to use gitutor without any dependencies version conflicts we recommend installing it using pipx. Pipx creates a virtual environment for your package and exposes its entry point so you can run gitutor from anywhere.

To install pipx and configure the $PATH run the following commands

For Windows:

$ python -m pip install pipx
$ python -m pipx ensurepath

For MacOS use:

$ brew install pipx

For Linux use:

$ python3 -m pip install pipx
$ python3 -m pipx ensurepath

NOTE: You may need to restart your terminal for the path updates to take effect.

Once pipx is installed, run the following to install gitutor:

$ pipx install gitutor

And to upgrade gitutor to its latest version you only need to run:

$ pipx upgrade gitutor

To install gitutor without using pipx just run:

$ pip install gitutor

Additional notes

Before using gitutor you need to have Git available in your computer. You can check the installation guide here.

It's also recommended to store your GitHub credentials so you won't have to authenticate everytime you realize a push or pull. You can do this by running

$ git config --global credential.helper store

This will store your credentials in a plain-text file (.git-gredentials) under your project directory. If you don't like this you can use any of the following approaches:

On Mac OS X you can use its native keystore with

$ git config --global credential.helper oskeychain

For Windows you can install a helper called Git Credential Manager for Windows and then run

$ git config --global credential.helper manager
