I’m proud to announce WinGit:
an attempt to bring Git powers to 64-bit Windows.
WinGit is currently used only by my coworkers and isn’t considered
production-ready-rock-solid. Use at your own risk.
Homepage & build instructions
MSI packages: https://github.com/slonopotamus/wingit/releases
After installation, git.exe is ready to be used from cmd.exe or TortoiseGit.
No kind of “Git Bash” or own explorer integration is provided.
Of course WinGit has issues:
Most notable are: git documentation is not packaged, no Tcl/Tk (thus, no gitk),
no SVN, no Explorer integration.
All sources are available on GitHub: https://github.com/slonopotamus/wingit
I know that build.sh is UGLY, especially openssl part.
Relationship with msysgit
Unlike msysgit, WinGit is a pure-Windows binary build with MSVC.
Like msysgit, WinGit also uses msys environment (sh/perl/etc) both during
build-time and runtime.
WinGit adds a few patches to Git itself on top of msysgit ones.
Patches are required due to insufficient testing of MSVC builds
(caused by total absence of any MSVC-built Git distributions).
All WinGit patches are sent upstream, just didn’t get to master yet.
