This post is just a rant about using Mac and Windows with Android Studio and Git and Google Cloud SDK. So if you want read my rants about Mac vs Windows, the continue reading.
I never knew that Apple ships git in their Mac OS X versions. Source can be found at https://opensource.apple.com/source/Git/ and its amazing that Apple has a fork of git. So I think it was pretty cool that I had no trouble with git and I can easily upload Repositories at GitHub or any other SCM software that uses git. So I had no trouble with the Macs dealing with gits.
in Windows, however...
I always carry my work on my thumbdrive or use the cloud for small projects. There are times that I have to install git in a public computer (such as a friends PC, school, etc.) and work on projects. The only solution to lower my install time is install the portable version of git from the official https://git-scm.com/ web site in my USB drive. The install size is like 200 MB+. The only setting I have to change is Settings > Version Control> Git and point the Path of the Git executable to the portable git.exe (mine is in PortableApps\PortableGit\bin\ folder) in Android Studio.
Now lets talk about Google Cloud SDK. I really want a good installation of google cloud SDK on the Mac and on Windows. Yet, I believe on windows was the simplest one: just click the exe file and you are done. On the Mac, you have to do 3 things:
Enter the following at a command prompt: *curl https://sdk.cloud.google.com | bash* Restart your shell: *exec -l $SHELL* Run gcloud init to initialize the gcloud environment: *gcloud init*
I know I am nick piking, but I am really lazy. Well that's about it, I am trying out the google cloud platform and testing out the git repositories and see if its better that GitHub. Sorry for the rant.
