Reading through Jason’s post on using Git-Achievements with msysGit, I couldn’t help but get it working with PowerShell. The result is a single PowerShell script added to my Git-Achievements repository, tagged here on the off chance I decided to upload my achievements.
To install posh-git-achievements…
- Fork my repository on GitHub (or if you have an existing repository, add me as a remote and pull)
- Clone your fork of the repository (into C:\Git\git-achievements, for this example)
- Open your PowerShell profile and add the following:
Set-Alias git C:\Git\git-achievements\git-achievements.ps1
- “dot source” your profile to reload it in your current session (or just start a new session):
- Check the install:
git achievements --help
If all goes according to plan, this should unlock your first achievement.
Note that this will pass every
git call through a few extra layers, including calls made for the posh-git prompt. But if you can tolerate the performance hit, it’s a rather fun way to expand your working knowledge of Git. Enjoy!
