PhoneGap “git” command line tool is not installed
I’m using Phonegap 3.0 and the Command Line Interface as per the phonegap website install instructions.
I have created an app just fine on iOS:
npm install -g phonegap
phonegap create Test -n Test (creates an app named “Test” and located in “Test” folder)
phonegap build ios
Error fetching plugin: Error: "git" command line tool is not installed: make sure it is accessible on your PATH.
Now, I have tried installing the “git” command line tool, but I’m not exactly sure if I’m installing it right, or if I was even downloading the right thing, or how to align the PATH to be accessible.
Any advice here? Has anyone dealt with or seen this? Thank you very much

Hi “git” is also a node module. Simplest way want i found is.
npm install -g git
This will install git in you node source location as a module.
Restart the machine.
Install phonegap plugin:
C:\Users\user1\yourprojectname>cordova plugin add https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cordova-plugin-camera.git
You will get response as:
Fetching plugin from "https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cordova-plugin-cam era.git"... Starting installation of "org.apache.cordova.camera" for android Preparing android project org.apache.cordova.camera installed on android.
Hope this will be very helpful. If any issue reply.
Just download the git CLI tool for Mac:
Download and install git from http://git-scm.com/downloads . Set path in System Environment variable pointing to the installation path, in my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin.
So go to control panel-> system ->Advance System Settings -> Environment Variable -> System Variable
Select Path and Edit it. Append C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin to it.
It will work for sure.
