Installing Git on Eclipse
How can I install Git on Eclipse? I found tutorials on http://cho.hapgoods.com/wordpress/?p=159 but there was said that “You should then see the eight Eclipse projects ‘org.spearce.something.'” I don’t see those eight projects.

Just add http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates to your Eclipse update manager.
Do you have Egit installed yet? If not, go to Window->Preferences->Install/Updates->Available Software Sites. Click on add and paste this link http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates
For Name, you can just put “EGit”. After you have EGit installed, follow this tutorial. It helped me a lot!
egit was included in Indigo (2011) and should be there in all future Eclipse versions after that.
Just go to ![(Help->Install New Software)]
Then Work with: –All Available Sites–
Then type egit underneath and wait (may take a while) !
Then click the checkbox and install.

I made an installation guide for Egit on Eclipse so I thought I would share it.
INSTALL EGIT plugin in eclispe which is pretty easy. If EGit is missing in your Eclipse installation, you can install it via the Eclipse Update Manager via: Help → Install new Software. EGit can be installed from the following URL: http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates
Under Eclipse Git Team Provider, tick ONLY “Eclipse EGit” and then download the plugin.
CONNECT TO YOUR LOCAL REPOSITORY. I right clicked on the project, selected “team > share project” and then ticked “use or create repository”
GIT IGNORE. Mark the “bin” folder as “ignored by Git”, either by right-clicking on it and selecting Team > Ignore or by creating a .gitignore file. My file was generated for me, I just had to make it visible. Here’s how in eclipse: In your package explorer, pull down the menu and select “Filters …”. You can adjust what types of files are shown/hidden there.
IDENTIFY YOURSELF. Click Preferences > Team > Git > Configuration and make sure your name & email are there so we know which user committed/pushed what.
NOW YOU ARE READY TO ADD/COMMIT/PUSH/PULL files with the plugin!
It’s Very Easy To Install By Following Below Steps In Eclipse JUNO version
Help–>Eclipse Marketplace–>Find: beside Textbox u can type “Egit”–>select Egit-git team provider intall button–>follow next steps and finally click finish
You didn’t mention which version of Eclipse you are using, but others have already posted good answers for modern versions of Eclipse. Unfortunately one of my legacy projects requires Eclipse Europa; the old EGit project homepage states the following:
The plugin only works on Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede) or newer. Eclipse 3.3 (Europa) is not supported anymore. Since the plugin is still very much work-in-progress we want to take advantage of new platforms features to facilitate progress.
So I guess I’m SOL – back to the graphical GitHub client for me! Lucky it’s a legacy project.
