ClassicPress Development with TortoiseGit: Install TortoiseGit for Windows

TortoiseGitWhen I started developing plugins for ClassicPress I decided that I needed to be using source control. As ClassicPress is intending to use GitHub for their plugin directory, it made sense for me to use it as well. This post is part of a series on ClassicPress Development with TortoiseGit which is a sub-series of the ClassicPress Development with GitHub series.

With Git for Windows installed, we can move onto installing TortoiseGit itself. TortoiseGit can be downloaded from here:
