How to install / switch / run multiple git version on Mac OS High Sierra?

Hello,

I like to test a Bitbucket plugin with multple git versions. I intend to switch between them by environment / PATH variable, set before Bitbucket starts.

How to install / switch / run them?

(On Windows this is easy using the portable versions.)

Many thanks, Johannes

Hi Johannes,

There is a StackOverflow page titled OS X: portable Git (aka install multiple Git versions) that I believe has some good information on this topic.  Basically you're going to install the different versions and use git --exec-path to use the version you would like to use:

--exec-path[=<path>]

Path to wherever your core Git programs are installed. This can also be controlled by setting the GIT_EXEC_PATH environment variable. If no path is given, git will print the current setting and then exit.

 

Hopefully this helps.

Cheers,

Branden
