Git Preflight Configuration

  1. Configure git with your user name:

    git config user.name "Jane Doe"
    

    And email address:

    git config --global user.email janedoe@example.com
    
  2. Ensure your git configuration is a friendly one to cross platform projects:

    git config --global core.autocrlf input
    

    This option may also be set on a repository by repository basis if for some reason you require a different global default. You can verify your git configuration with:

    git config --list
