Git is perhaps one of the best Version Control Systems (VCS) out there. Created by Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, it stands as one of the best in the business despite its young age.

Setting up LabVIEW for Git

  1. Install Git for Windows.
  2. Install TortoiseGit.
  3. Reboot.
  4. Follow the instructions in this tutorial: Using LVmerge LabVIEW Merge Tool with TortoiseSVN
  5. Relax.

Now, for any project with LabVIEW you need to:

  1. Create a file called ".gitignore" (without quotes) in your new git repository/LabVIEW project.
  2. Place the following in the file, save, and commit.
#Ignore personal settings
*.lvlps
