I had to use Git on Windows to work with my own sharpOauth library on a Microsoft environment while working on my Office Addin.

I used the following tutorial by nathanj as a reference.

Here are the steps I followed

  1. download and install putty in c:\program files\putty
  2. download and install msysgit. I picked the package called msysGit-fullinstall-
  3. opening c:\msysgit\msys.bat
  4. cd /c/Documents\ and\ Settings/<username>/Mes\ Documents/Workspace
  5. /share/msysGit/initialize.sh (say yes when asked to validate)
  6. git clone https://samo9789@github.com/samo9789/sharpOAuth.git

I didn’t end up using the graphical interface showed in nathanj’s tutorial which is closed to what I’m used to on OS X. I’d rather have a similar experience with Git cross platform so it’s best that way for me.

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
