Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub
                  Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com


              Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub
GitHub is a web-based hosting service for projects that use the Git revision control
system. It is a social networking where you can share your code.

Warning!

GitHub officially supports msysgit (openssh) on windows and precompiled or self-
compiled binaries on Mac and Linux.

What’s Egit anyway?
EGit is an Eclipse plugin that uses a pure Java implementation of Git (JGit) to enable
Eclipse projects to be controlled by a Git repository. EGit is under rapid development,
I’m currently using version 0.5200908282229 (10-10-2009). As an Eclipse source control
plugin it’s not complete yet, but it has a lot going for it and gives you some goodies and
visual clues on the state of your branch.

Egit has moved to the eclipse project recently

Here is what you will find in this tutorial:
   • Installing EGit
   • Importing an existing Eclipse project from Github
   • Uploading your Eclipse project to Github
   • Git operations from inside Eclipse


Installing EGit
You can add the EGit update site to Eclipse and install it like any other plugin. Add the
following site http://www.jgit.org/updates to Eclipse and install it.

Don’t know how to do this? Follow the steps from this tutorial:

3- Type a name for Egit update site (I named it egit) and paste this url
http://www.jgit.org/updates on Location. Click on OK:




4- Wait for just a few seconds. Eclipse is going to search for the plugin in the update site
you informed:

7- Wait for a few seconds. Eclipse is going to verify the plugin compatibility (with your
IDE version) and required packages:




8- Click on Next:

                 Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com

Importing and existing Eclipse project from Github
1- Open Eclipse IDE:




2- On Package Explorer view, right click on blank area and click on Import:




                                      Page 8 of 32

                 Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com


3- Find the folder named Git and choose Git Repository. Click on Next:




                                     Page 9 of 32

                 Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com


4- Open the github project page you would like to import and copy Your Clone URL:




5- Back to Eclipse, paste the URL on the URI:




                                    Page 10 of 32
Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub
                   Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com

6- There is an error. Let’s fix it: change Protocol to git+ssh:




7- You only need to fill the URI field. EGit will parse it and fill the other fields for you.
You’ll be identifying using your ssh key so there’s no password needed for the git user.
Unfortunately, the EGit plugin no longer parses git@github.com URLs correctly. Make
sure to choose the git+ssh protocol and enter github.com as your host, correct the path
and the URL will be adjusted accordingly. The resulting URL will look like this:
git+ssh://git@github.com//.git. Click on Next.




                                        Page 11 of 32

                    Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com

8- If this is the first time you are setting up Egit in your machine, and you are a Windows
user, it is possible you will get the following error message (Auth Fail):




9- In case of this message appears to you, click on Yes and follow next steps. Otherwise
go to step 15:




10- Click on Yes:




11- Click on OK:




                                      Page 12 of 32
Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub
                   Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com

12- The following error message should appear. Click on OK:




13- Read step 14 to fix this error:




                                      Page 13 of 32
Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub
                  Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com

14- When you created your public key, you must created it in the .ssh folder
(C:Documents and Settings{user}.ssh), and Egit tries to get your public key from ssh
folder (C:Documents and Settings{user}ssh). That is why you get the auth fail error
message. You have to allow Egit to create ssh folder (C:Users{user} - Windows Vista
users). But, until now, you just created the folder. Your public key is not in there. You
need to copy your files from .ssh directory to shh directory. When you are done, restart
Eclipse IDE and follow the steps 1 to 7 again, and go to step 15:




15- Wait for a few seconds. Eclipse is getting required information from Github:




                                     Page 14 of 32

                 Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com


16- Select your branch (Master) and click on Next:

workspace directory. Click on Next:

Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub GitHub is a web-based hosting service for projects that use the Git revision control system. It is a social networking where you can share your code. Warning! GitHub officially supports msysgit (openssh) on windows and precompiled or self- compiled binaries on Mac and Linux. What’s Egit anyway? EGit is an Eclipse plugin that uses a pure Java implementation of Git (JGit) to enable Eclipse projects to be controlled by a Git repository. EGit is under rapid development, I’m currently using version 0.5200908282229 (10-10-2009). As an Eclipse source control plugin it’s not complete yet, but it has a lot going for it and gives you some goodies and visual clues on the state of your branch. Egit has moved to the eclipse project recently Here is what you will find in this tutorial: • Installing EGit • Importing an existing Eclipse project from Github • Uploading your Eclipse project to Github • Git operations from inside Eclipse Installing EGit You can add the EGit update site to Eclipse and install it like any other plugin. Add the following site http://www.jgit.org/updates to Eclipse and install it. Don’t know how to do this? Follow the steps from this tutorial: Page 1 of 32

  • 11. Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com 6- There is an error. Let’s fix it: change Protocol to git+ssh: 7- You only need to fill the URI field. EGit will parse it and fill the other fields for you. You’ll be identifying using your ssh key so there’s no password needed for the git user. Unfortunately, the EGit plugin no longer parses git@github.com URLs correctly. Make sure to choose the git+ssh protocol and enter github.com as your host, correct the path and the URL will be adjusted accordingly. The resulting URL will look like this: git+ssh://git@github.com//.git. Click on Next. Page 11 of 32

  • 14. Tutorial: Using the EGit Eclipse Plugin with GitHub Loiane Groner - http://loianegroner.com 14- When you created your public key, you must created it in the .ssh folder (C:Documents and Settings{user}.ssh), and Egit tries to get your public key from ssh folder (C:Documents and Settings{user}ssh). That is why you get the auth fail error message. You have to allow Egit to create ssh folder (C:Users{user} - Windows Vista users). But, until now, you just created the folder. Your public key is not in there. You need to copy your files from .ssh directory to shh directory.
