Git Portable 1.8.1.2 Online Installer

Application: Git Portable
Category: Development
Description: Git is a powerful version control system aiming to be the fastest decentralized source code management tool on this planet.

Having its root in the Linux development community, Git used to be quite dependent on POSIX features usually only provided by Unix-style Operating Systems. Thanks to the efforts of a few contributors, this project succeeded in providing an almost feature-complete fork of Git on Windows. Being solely driven by volunteers in their spare time, it is nevertheless quite stable.

A couple of things...

As much as we love having updated versions of apps we don't want two or more developers working on the exact same thing - if you want to update an app that has been posted in the recent past, please post to the original thread to see if the developer is a) still active and b) still prepared to update the app.

And if it does happen that the developer is no longer active or wants to hand over the app to you don't hijack the original thread with your release. Please post it to a new beta test thread instead, as it will assist the community to know that there is a new release and help them find the download they want as you can't edit posts once someone replies, so your newer updates will get lost at the end of someone else's thread.

Thirdly, the base app is open source, you don't need to package it as an online installer. A bundled installer will reach a wider audience (some people dislike online installers) and will also cause you less problems/reasons to update in the future.

I appreciate your feedback.

I appreciate your feedback.

I thought creating an online installer does make sense due to the rather large size of the package.

But I will follow your suggestion and create a new thread if the initial developer is not upgrading the package.

Some usefull links

Hey... thanx for the go on this one. I have done an online installer myself some time ago. I also posted it on the original thread (https://portableapps.com/node/22861) but the original author doesn't seem to live there any more...

Anyway, you can also check my online installer, now hosted at bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/jpoul/msysgitportable). From what I can see on your launcher we actually did almost the same things, I for cmd shell and you for bash. Still looking for an easy way of having two launchers for this.

Anyway, just hope I'm being helpful. And winterblood, can we do something about original authors who do not live here any more ? Keeps a lot of nice and useful apps from not being updated.

Thanx.

Hope I'm being usefull.

Not really my field sorry

I'm just a developer, not a moderator, so I only have the same abilities as everyone else to see who is and isn't alive in the forums, although I'm not sure if mods even have much more power in that regard.

About all we can do is what we have been doing: if you are interested in an outdated beta test (as a user or developer) post in its thread, then wait and see whether the dev is inactive or is willing to hand over development (most devs are subscribed to their own beta tests, so if you post a comment they will receive an email about it). Personally I would assume a month with no response is decent grounds for the app being taken over.

If an app is dead or ready to be handed over feel free to post a request for it (as a user) referencing the original beta test thread(s), or post your own version (as a dev).

If a beta test is verified as dead for whichever reason, we may also be able to talk a mod into flagging it as [outdated] or [dead] or an equally meaningful tag to help us all determine what is and what isn't potentially supported.

My mistake, should have searched before posting

I apologize. I didn't see this thread before I posted my version.

Which preview release is this one based on? 20130201? I'm willing to be maintainer, if needed. Please let me know if I should continue my version or drop my efforts in favor of this line of releases.

Anyway, I would only suggest that the name of the package be changed to include the preview release version as I did with mine. Then the user will know what version of the upstream project they're getting.

Mine is too, basically. I just started with the Git Portable release rather than the mainline release. They consider Git Portable to be a "preview" only because of the different packaging.

Regardless, I'll drop my efforts in favor of this.

updates?

Are there any updates to Portable Git? I know this thread is a few months old and I didn't want to create another thread just to ask for information regarding updates!

Also PortableGit is command line / terminal, are there any GUI's that sit on top of it? (im lazy at typing commands all the time Wink

It's up to date

It's actually up to date with the latest version of Portable Git - I just accidentally tagged the release as 1.8.1.3 instead of 1.8.3.

I subscribe to the releases of Portable Git, and when a new version is released, I package it up and push it to the GitHub repo. I'll try to remember to also update this thread.

GUI is available

@PortableDisk: GUI is available. On command line, type $git gui.

The only difference is that you don't get the context shortcuts, as noted in GitPortable\App\Git\README.portable


Functional differences to "normal" MSysGit installation package
---------------------------------------------------------------

This version does not offer you the convenient right-click context menu
entries "Git GUI Here" and "Git Bash Here", because these would require
to add entries into the Windows registry.

You could add this by hand on some machines - see an explanation about this in http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/customize-the-windows-vista...

Link needs updated; PackageVersion should be lower for DevTests.

Your link still points to Dev Test 1, which is no longer in your repository.
Also, a couple of side-notes: the git repo isn't really the place to put binaries, that's what the releases tab is for, and, if possible you should keep the PackageVersion lower than the base app's version, so that if/when it goes official it can be incremented (so as to ensure testers are offered the update by the Platform) without pushing it higher than the base app's version number.

Edit: Oh, and despite your commit message claiming to update to 1.9.4-preview20140815, DT2 appears to be using 1.9.4-preview20140929, so it's up-to-date again now. Smile

Thanks for the tips

I will update the link straight away. I usually try to do so, but sometimes I forget. I will try to make a habit of it in the future.

I am using GitHub's releases system for many of my other projects, but I guess that I was holding off switching this one over as I didn't want to break anyone's workflow. This was set up before the releases system was introduced. The GitHub readme and .gitignore file cannot be placed inside of the GitPortable directory, or the PortableApps.com Installer will bundle them with the app. Additionally, the installer is generated into one level above the GitPortable directory, so it seemed cleaner to just move the GitPortable directory a level up and include everything in the repo. I'll see what I can do, even if it means just having a README and the GitPortable directory in the repo root, with installer files excluded.

That's a great tip about the PackageVersion number; I hadn't thought about that before. Oh, and apologies about the incorrect commit message; I don't know what happened there Sad

Nice sig.

Don't Panic!
It's not like it's horrible to have binaries in there, it's just a big file that changes drastically rather often, so it'll just bloat the size of your git repo, that's all. (AFAIK anyway.)

Edit: I see you switched over to using GitHub's releases system, and not only that, you added the older DevTests to the releases tab too. Nice!

When will we have this as an official version inside Portable Apps?

This is such important application.

Just found Git Portable, it's great! My only issue was having to create "mkdir /tmp" to keep bash from complaining /tmp doesn't exist (although I've searched my PortableApps drive and can't figure out where the directory actually was created?!?)

The /tmp thing has only

The /tmp thing has only cropped up for me as an annoyance when I decide to use Git Gui. If I'm just using the cmd I don't get any refs to it. Still probably happening, but I'm not seeing it so I don't really worry about it.

/mkdir tmp

I know that mkdir /tmp can fix the error, but I'm not sure how to include this fix with the installer, as the command much be run in the bash shell to work correctly. This is because tmp is not an actual directory in / (App/Git); it is a special folder that is actually located in the Windows %TEMP% directory.

Hi could you please add the following line to the GitPortable.ini [Launch]
HideCommandLineWindow=true

Also, will it be possible to have command line arguments passed through GitPortable.exe,
I think you will need to add to the bat file for that at a minimum.

The reason I am asking, is that for some reason I cannot pass command line commands through.

I'll do an update soon that will hopefully improve how Git Portable starts up. I didn't have much of a hand in the creation of the current method, so I will have a look over and see what can be done.

The HideCommandLineWindow line will certainly be in the next release; just add it yourself until then.

I did that, just wanted to make sure that you did not forget it, I sometimes overlook the most obvious of answers.
In regards to portable version:
Did you try to install the regular version on a virtual OS and do change comparison. I noticed that some programs are more workable, have more options and easier to navigate, if you treat them as if they are a regular installed version instead of using their portable cousins.

I will certainly update Git to 2.5.0 (my new release notification seems to be broken for some reason), but I'm not 100% about 64-bit. It can be done, but from what I gather it's not recommended in the PortableApps.com world. See https://portableapps.com/node/24371 and https://portableapps.com/manuals/PortableApps.comLauncher/topics/64-bit....

Git 2.5.3 Errors

Got some errors during the first start up of Git 2.5.3 Portable that I didn't see with the previous 2.5.1.

mkdir: cannot change permissions of '/dev/shm': Permission denied
mkdir: cannot change permissions of '/dev/mqueue': Permission denied

'C:\\Windows\\System32\\drivers\\etc\\services' -> '/etc/services'
'C:\\Windows\\System32\\drivers\\etc\\networks' -> '/etc/networks'

Not sure if that's related to the fact that I'm working on a corporate computer and those folders don't have permissions.

To get the PortableApps.com

To get the PortableApps.com Platform menu to display multiple icons for the same app, under the [Control] section of AppInfo.ini you need to set Icons to the appropriate number, and then add StartN and NameN entries for each icon.

[Control]
Icons=2
Start=GitPortable.exe
Start1=GitPortable.exe
Name1=Git Bash Portable
Start2=GitGUIPortable.exe
Name2=Git GUI Portable

Each of these entries needs an additional full set of icons in the App/AppInfo directory.
e.g. AppIcon.ico, AppIcon1.ico, AppIcon2.ico, AppIcon_32.png, AppIcon1_32.png, AppIcon2_32.png, etc

Generating the launchers was a bit trickier. I created two ini files in App/AppInfo/Launcher: GitGUIPortable.ini and GitPortable.ini. Unfortunately, the PortableApps.com Launcher Generator doesn't work too well with multiple launchers. To get it to generate the GitGUIPortable.exe launcher, I needed to change the AppID in AppInfo.ini, run the launcher generator, and then change it back.

Multiple Icons/Apps/Launchers

Thanks, that was the key I needed. Able to create a launcher for multiple apps in a development suite by creating the icons, INIs, and setting each app in the AppInfo.ini one-at-a-time and running the Launcher Generator. Takes time to do each program/app in your suite but it does work.

True, it's not the most intuitive, but remember that you only need to generate the launchers once, and only update them if there's a change of icon or name

I figured out the /tmp problem:

I decided to look into your "/tmp" issue today, and figured out what the problem is.

/tmp points to the %TEMP% directory, which PAL sets to the "GitPortableTemp" folder within your normal %TEMP% directory, then when the launcher exits, it deletes the app's contained %TEMP% directory ("GitPortableTemp") and exits.

The issue that's causing the /tmp error is that your launcher's ini doesn't tell PAL to wait for the exe that Git GUI runs under (wish.exe), so your Launcher makes %TEMP%\GitPortableTemp, sets %TEMP% to point to it, then launches …\GitPortable\App\Git\cmd\git-gui.exe; git-gui.exe launches wish.exe then exits; the Launcher deletes %TEMP% (which at this time points to the %TEMP%\GitPortableTemp folder), and exits; now Git GUI is running (as wish.exe) and can't find it's %TEMP% because the Launcher already deleted it.

To fix this you need to add WaitForEXE1=wish.exe to your App\AppInfo\Launcher\GitGUIPortable.ini.
See Pull Request # 18 [Merged].

Note: Also, you should update the link & version info on this page to reflect your most recent release, and as this is a DevTest, your PackageVersion should be lower than the DisplayVersion would indicate, so that if/when the app goes official the PackageVersion of the official release can be updated to match the DisplayVersion, and the PortableApps.com Updater will offer the update to the official release.

Edit: Just realised earlier today that it should wait for git-bash.exe too, because otherwise you can end up with the same issue occuring if someone starts Git Bash from within Git GUI, then closes Git GUI, as this will also cause it to clean up the %TEMP% directory before it should.
See Pull Request # 19.

It is.

As stated in my commit message, the .tmp files normal go in the %TEMP% directory.
Apparently if there is no %TEMP% directory, they go into the current directory instead.

Thanks very much for this, it's a big help. I'll merge the request now.

The reason why I decided to remove Git is that I felt it was unnecessarily increasing the size of the repository and making it harder to handle. Given that it's really just the Git binary copied over, I didn't see the harm in leaving that a step in the build process.

Dev Test 2 fixes an error in bash "Can't find /tmp", and adds WaitForEXE for gitk and git executables.

Note that I updated the package version as well, to allow for increasing Dev Test versions while maintaining an easily-readable link to the base app version.

2.11.1 DT 2

The base app has been updated to 2.11.1.

[EDIT] I've pushed a Dev Test 2 - reducing the app to a single launcher, Added a MinOS value, and pointing the base project at the Git For Windows project as opposed to the main Git project.

This app continues to be fairly popular - The last release 2.11 Dev Test 1 (Dec 8/16) received 1143 downloads!

GIT Is Great!

Hi,

Thank you for the efforts bringing us GIT.

I was wondering, in order to complete the package, any chance you add a GIT Client GUI?

I really like SmartGIT.
But maybe there are other.

Thank You.

Included

This package includes the default git gui as provided by the Git for Windows project.

Any other client would need to be provided as an independent application, rather than trying to integrate with this one.

Two launcher

There should be two executables GitGUIPortable and GitPortable. You have to start the GitPortable to launch the Git Bash CLI.
