This is a quick walkthrough on how to install and begin using gitolite in under a minute(only 4 commands!). Just follow along through the shell blocks. Reading the gitolite docs is STRONGLY recommended.


  1. Operating System:
    • CentOS/Scientific Linux 6 with the EPEL yum repo configured
    • Ubuntu 10.10 or higher
  2. General familiarity with the shell
# this way is best if you want to stay up to date
# or submit patches to node or npm
mkdir ~/local
echo 'export PATH=$HOME/local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
. ~/.bashrc
cd ~/local
# could also fork, and then clone your own fork instead of the official one
