Here is Mike Henke’s Git User Config Cheatsheet for setting up a new computer with git.

  • git config –global “John Doe”

  • git config –global

  • git config –global push.default “tracking”

  • git config –global pack.threads “0”

  • git config –global core.autocrlf false

  • git config –global apply.whitespace nowarn

  • git config –global color.ui “auto”

  • git config –global core.excludesfile “C:\.gitignore”

Totally stolen from Mike Henke’s post follow the link to give him some love.

This isn’t exactly how I remember doing it but it will serve as a decent starting point for me when I have to setup my next computer.
