Getting Started with Gitorious


Gitorious is a hosting service for open source projects most of which are closely related Qt. Gitorious is using the Git distributed revision control system which was initially developed by Linus Torvalds for the development of Linux kernel but was quickly adopted by other projects and soon was among the most popular source control systems.

The little open-source project location2sms that I am working on since the summer of 2011 is also hosted at gitorious.

Register at gitorious.org

The registration is free and takes just a few minutes. Visit gitorious web site to register.

Install Git

If you are running a windows the recommended way to install and use Git is through msysGit which comes bundled with minimal Cygwin support. The installation is very easy - just download and run the executable.

Generate and Manage Keys

Run the following command to generate keys:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
Copy the generated public key and paste in Gitorious web page for managing keys. The following command will display the key on the screen. Please note that the location may vary depending the previous step.
less /c/Users/Leon/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
