This document lays out a very basic example on how to use git-series. Git series is an add-on to git implemented in Rust.
For installation instructions see https://github.com/git-series/git-series/blob/master/README.md Before you install git-series, you will need to have install if not on your system yet
- Rust: see https://www.rust-lang.org/tools/install
- cmake: see https://cmake.org/download/ - note that this dependency is not documented in the git-series README file, which is why it is covered here. Also note that after an install, the command line tools are not installed automatically for all operating systems. Go to the UI and select Tools > How to Install for Command line use.
