- Git is a commonly used system for version control…and it's built into Eclipse.…To set up Git, we need to first establish a user.…When you make changes to your files,…you can sign them as a particular user.…For example if I edited a file and I'm working…with somebody else, they can see that Todd edited the file…on a certain day, at a certain time.…So we need to set up our user name and our email address…to identify ourselves as a Git user.…
To do that, open up Eclipse Preferences.…Again it's Window, Preferences on the PC.…Under Team, then Git,…choose Configuration.…Then go to the User Settings tab.…In here, click Add Entry.…Then we're asked to add a Key, Value pair.…It says, e.g. 'user.name' and a value.…So we'll actually type that first,…user.name.…
And then I'm going to type in my name.…And I'll click OK and in the Key section,…I can see that my User is created…and when I expand that I can see the Name value is Todd.…I'm going to select User and click Add Entry again.…And I'm going to type user.email,…and I'm going to type in an example email address.…
