Install offline GIT Web help !

Today, I realised there is a HTML version of offline help manual available for GIT while running the following command.

$ git help –web grep

But then I realised the local HTML docs were not installed, when I tried to run. Thus running the following command gets it working.

$ sudo git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git-htmldocs.git /usr/share/doc/git-doc

Updating the docs is just a command away.

$ cd /usr/share/doc/git-doc
$ sudo git pull

The following are few of the important links that comes handy (as mentioned in man git).
