Several important words

You can install Elegant Git by either executing bash script or using homebrew. After the installation, please configure your environment by running git elegant acquire-git and follow the instructions. To find out more, please read the configuration approach.

You can access Elegant Git in CLI using any of

git <command>
git elegant <command>
git-elegant <command>

where <command> is one of the available commands which are described on commands page or are printed in a terminal by running git elegant.

Also, please use git elegant clone-repository or git elegant init-repository instead of regular clone or init Git's commands in order to get Elegant Git working by default.

bash installation

Run curl | $(which bash) and follow the provided instructions to install the tool. ${HOME}/.elegant-git directory will host all required files. That's why if you want to remove installation, you need to remove this directory only (rm -r ${HOME}/.elegant-git).

Elegant Git's BASH completion does not work without regular Git BASH completion. If you don't have it, please follow in addition to Elegant Git's configuration.

Homebrew installation

On macOS, you can install Homebrew if you haven't already, then run brew install git (we must install Git with Homebrew in order to have a working BASH completion) and brew install bees-hive/hive/elegant-git (please visit if you need details).
