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.ui auto

If you are using Windows, the output of Git will not have colors.
