Configure Git

(If you used RailsInstaller on Windows then you should already have user.name and user.email configured.)

Type this in the terminal:
git config --global user.name "Your Actual Name"
git config --global user.email "Your Actual Email"

Use the same email address for heroku, git, github, and ssh.

Verify

Type this in the terminal:
git config --get user.name
Expected result:
your name
Type this in the terminal:
git config --get user.email
Expected result:
your email address

Colored output in Git

Type this in the terminal:
git config --global color.diff auto
git config --global color.status auto
git config --global color.branch auto

If you are using Windows, you may need to install AnsiCon to see colors (otherwise you'll see gibberish). If you didn't do this earlier, then you should do it now.
