Git is a distributed version control system. It is a software that is used to handle some project work in a team or group. Without hampering others’ work you can easily do your contribution to the project by using Git. We all can use Git in our machine just by installing it. But, while you are using it in Raspberry Pi we have to install properly Raspberry OS. It is the most important prerequisite. Without it, you can not be able to install and use it further. If you do not install Raspberry Pi OS then you can not open the terminal which was provided along with it. If you can not open the terminal you can not write the proper command to install the Git or any other applications.


  • It has distributed version control system. So, it works easier than the centralized version control system.
  • It is small & faster than a centralized version control system.
  • It has both local & remote repositories which help team members to work on any project without making any fatal changes.
