[SOLVED] How do I type Git commands/Manage my repository inside Qt Creator?



  • Git is working under the windows command prompt, but I can't see manage my repository in Qt Creator.

    I created a Git Repository on an external hard drive using Tools>Git>Creat Repository... and I got this response in the version control pane ! :

    15:08 Executing in F:\Git Repository: C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe init
    Initialized empty Git repository in F:/Git Repository/.git/

    So...somethings working!

    In the Tools>Git> The only active submenu items are :
    Remote Repository>Gerrit...
    Show...
    Create Repository...

    All the others are greyed out, Why?--

    The documentation at http://git-scm.com/book/en/Getting-Started-First-Time-Git-Setup states that I should configure the default text editor that will be used.

    **** If so, what should be the default editor?****

    Development profile = Win 7 64 bit, Qt Creator 2.7.2, Qt.1.0.



  • Anyone out there that knows anything about this?



  • The solution is:

    All the others are greyed out, Why?
    This was because my project files were located outside of the git repository that I created manually. Instead, I just created a new project and selected Git as my version control and the submenus on Tools>Git all became active.

    Once the submenus under Tools>Git are active, one may use them to execute Git commands.

    If I want to use it in Qt Creator, do I need to configure the default text editor that will be used ?
    No, that is automatically done.

    When installing Git:
    1- Choose windows command prompt option (2)

    When configuring Qt Creator
    1-Put Git.exe path in Configuration Section using Prepend to path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin;
    2-Click on Set “HOME” environment variable
