git-annex.app

For easy installation, use the prebuilt app bundle.

  • 10.11 El Capitan / 10.10 Yosemite / 10.9 Mavericks: git-annex.dmg

To run the git-annex assistant, just install the app, look for the icon, and start it up.

To use git-annex at the command line, you can add git-annex.app/Contents/MacOS to your PATH

Alternatively, from the command line you can run git-annex.app/Contents/MacOS/runshell, which makes your shell use all the programs bundled inside the app, including not just git-annex, but git, and several more. Handy if you don't otherwise have git installed.
