Cygwin and Github


  1. I need instructions on how to install Cygwin and the specific packages I need to download in Cygwin for git to work on it.
  2. I also need help connecting my GitHub account to Cygwin so I can easily commit through the terminal.


There are plenty of guides written on this matter, i would recommend you to follow those. Just find them using google.

written such a guide is really time consuming for us here on the forum, ideally follow guides which already exist (given there are plenty) and if you get stuck, post the guide and your problem here, so we can help you. This way, you get the best of both worlds.

I have worked with cygwin, its complicated. Have you carefully considered the other options you have?
