= Pro Git, Second Edition

Welcome to the second edition of the Pro Git book.

You can find this book online at:

Like the first edition, the second edition of Pro Git is open source under a Creative Commons license.

A couple of things have changed since open sourcing the first edition. For one, we've moved from Markdown to the amazing AsciiDoc format for the text of the book; here's an[AsciiDoc quick reference].

We've also moved to keeping the translations in separate repositories rather than subdirectories of the English repository. See[the translating document] for more information.

== How To Generate the Book

You can generate the e-book files manually with Asciidoctor. If you run the following you may actually get HTML, Epub, Mobi and PDF output files:

$ bundle install $ bundle exec rake book:build Converting to HTML... -- HTML output at progit.html Converting to EPub... -- Epub output at progit.epub Converting to Mobi (kf8)... -- Mobi output at Converting to PDF...

-- PDF output at progit.pdf

You can generate just one of the supported formats (HTML, EPUB, mobi, or PDF). Use one of the following commands:

To generate the HTML book:

$ bundle exec rake book:build_html

To generate the EPUB book:

$ bundle exec rake book:build_epub

To generate the mobi book:

$ bundle exec rake book:build_mobi

To generate the PDF book:

$ bundle exec rake book:build_pdf
