How to setup Visual Studio 2013 with a CentOS 6.5 x64 git server

+3 votes
381 views

I'm looking to setup a git server under CentOS 6.5 x64 that will serve 2-5 .NET developers using Visual Studio Pro 2013. I've been reading that Visual Studio 2013 now has 'native git support', but as I've been reading into this more and more, it appears to me that the 'native git support' is really the fact that Team Foundation Server has git support on it and that I'd need to setup TFS in order to use the Visual Studio 2013's native git support. Can anyone either confirm and/or deny this for me? My personal suspicion is that I will need to implement TortiseGIT to do what I want to do, but wanted to throw this question.

If, in actuality, I can use a CentOS git server with Visual Studio 2013, can anyone point me in the direction of an FAQ/directions/YouTube video/book/anything for how to setup something like this? I have the resources to setup a CentOS git server (which will also host some DreamWeaver CC users as well on other projects), but setting up a dedicated TFS server isn't an option, hence why I'm looking into this.

should get you started.

As far as I can tell from #git, every once in a while people seem to want to escape from GUIs to have control over what they're doing (for example when cleaning up existing commits, or when performing a complex merge). You can find a usable command-line version of Git for Windows at http://msysgit.github.io/ (and the same project has a TortoiseSVN-like explorer plugin called GitCheetah if you need that).
