===Getting Git===
Clone the whole repository
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/ufoai/code ufoai
[[Image:Git-clone-gui.png|right|300px|thumb|Checking out with the official Git GUI]]
[[Image:Git-clone-gui-step2.png|right|300px|thumb|Clicking the clone button will start the process but you won't see anything until the download is done]]
Install [http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ msysGit] and [http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/ TortoiseGIT] or install the official Git (see the msysGit link) and use the official Git GUI.
Only clone the master branch
git clone -b master git://git.code.sf.net/p/ufoai/code ufoai
Use the msys batch file in the msysGit directory to get the mingw shell and execute all the commands below (if you are not using TortoiseGit and would like to deal with Git on the commandline)
If you are new to [[git]], checkout out our [[git|help]] page.
====Mac OS X====
Get git-core through [http://www.macports.org macports]
If you are under [[Linux]] git should be installable via your package manager.
==Getting the source==
===Easy Way===
If you want only last '''master''' head as most peoples do, then after installing {{http|code.google.com/p/msysgit/ msysGit}}. First, you need open its shotcut 'Git Bash' and type this:
git init ufoai
cd ufoai
git remote add -t master origin git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
git fetch --depth 1
git checkout -t origin/master
Now you can use {{http|code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/ TortoiseGIT}} for easier management of all downloaded stuff. Instead, you can use '''Git Clone''' -> '''depth 1''' and it will download around 32000~ objects, but the first way is better.
==Hard Way==
The repository includes data_source, all branches and all tags. It's often enough to only check out the master branch - which is the current state of development.
Check out the repository with:
git clone git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
to download the source. This is a read-only checkout until now. To get the repository with write support, type:
git remote set-url --push origin ssh://USER@ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
====Also getting data_source====
Not everyone might be interested in the data_source data, so by default it's skipped for a clone. To also download data_source just type:
git config --add remote.origin.fetch '+refs/other/*:refs/remotes/origin/*'
Run git fetch afterwards to get the branch.
For non-global options you have to {{command|cd}} into your git checkout directory first.
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email mail@example.com
git config --global alias.upbase "rebase '@{u}'"
git config --global alias.wu "log --stat origin..@{0}"
git config --global push.default tracking
git config --global core.excludesfile '~/.gitignore'
echo "*~" >> ~/.gitignore
git config --global color.branch auto
git config --global color.diff auto
git config --global color.interactive auto
git config --global color.status auto
To always rebase on a pull do this:
git config branch.master.rebase true
====Creating a patch====
If you commited them already and would like to create a patch from the latest revision:
git format-patch HEAD~
If you would like to make patches for your last three revisions:
git format-patch HEAD~3
====Applying patches====
git am patch.diff
====Stash local changes====
If you have uncommited modification that you would like to keep, you can stash them, do whatever you need a clean working copy for and pop the changes back into your working copy when you are done.
git stash save
Do you changes here...
git stash pop
====Show local commits====
Shows local commits that are not yet part of the tracking branch:
git cherry -v
====Creating a branch====
Create a branch that tracks the current active branch. If you are e.g. in master, your new created branch will track master.
git branch -t BRANCHNAME
Publish this branch
git push origin master:BRANCHNAME
====Subsequent uses of the command====
git fetch
will update your copy of the source and
git upbase
will merge your changes in. If there are conflicts you have to resolve them and call
git add FILE
to mark the file as resolved. After that the rebase must be continued with:
git rebase --continue
git log
in the same directory presents you a log of recent changes.
git commit
commit changes to your local git repository
git push
pushes your commits to the global git repository.
git checkout .
reverts your local/uncommited changes.
git reset --hard HEAD~
completely reverts the last commit in your local repository to the predecessor of HEAD (branch, index and working copy)
git reset --soft HEAD~
reverts the last commit in your local repository without reverting the changed files to the predecessor of HEAD (branch, index and working copy) - use that command to prevent losing changes made to files in the commit you revert
git init buildbot
cd buildbot
git fetch git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai buildbot:buildbot
git checkout buildbot
Only fetches the buildbot branch.
git rebase --whitespace=fix origin/master
Fixes whitespaces in all of your local commits.
git init buildbot; cd !$; git remote add -t buildbot origin git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai; git fetch; git co buildbot
Fetches only the buildbot branch and tracks the remote buildbot branch.
====Getting help====
Shows all available git commands:
git help --all

== github ==
There is a [https://github.com/ufoai github] mirror which you can use for cloning, too. Using this mirror could be a preferred option if you have slow internet connection, because github allows longer download times than SourceForge.
To clone repository from github mirror, use this command:
git clone --progress git://github.com/ufoai/ufoai.git
If you want this clone to track SourceForge repository, enter following commands after cloning completes:
cd ufoai
git config remote.origin.url git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
Please also note that github mirror tracks only the master branch. You will have to use SourceForge to fetch any other branches.
== rsync way ==
Also it is possible to get repo via the [{{http|en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync}} rsync] utility. Use it if your network doesn`t allow to load whole repo via git.
rsync -av ufoai.git.sourceforge.net::gitroot/ufoai/* $PATH_TO_RSYNC_TARGET_DIR
After the fetching you need to do some more things:
1. rename ufo to .git
2. edit .git/config and set bare to false
3. go into ufoai and checkout your working copy
git remote set-url --push origin ssh://USER@ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
git remote set-url origin git://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/ufoai/ufoai
There is also a [http://ufoai.git.sourceforge.net/ GIT Webclient] to browse the repository with your webbrowser.
