In my previous posts I wrote about how to prepare a developer station with a Raspverry Pi 4. I wrote on how to install Visual Studio Code, how to install .Net Core and how to build and run C# projects. Of course, the next step is to work with Git.
The command to install git is
sudo apt-get install git
However, I already have Git installed. I haven’t checked, but it seems to me that the latest Raspbian distro includes by default git. I was hoping that VSCode will recognize and use this, but in order to work with Git in VSCode I need some extra work in the IDE settings.
I was able to clone some repositories from GitHub and Azure DevOps, directly from bach
So, let’s fix Visual Studio Code and Git integration. This one is very easy, I just need to go to Settings, search for Git and define the Git path for VSCode.
In order to find the git path, we need to use the [which] command
pi@rpidev3:~ $ which git /usr/bin/git
My got location is [/usr/bin/git].
I’m not a command line dude! I like User Interfaces, so now it’s time to open one of the cloned repositories in Visual Studio Code. I can see that VSCode recognices Git and I can start to commit my files.
This is also a perfect moment to define Git user name and user email.
git config --global user.email "email@example.com" git config --global user.name "your name"
I like to do this in the Terminal in VSCode, just to check all is working fine.
