Mac – Install Xcode for git?!

It is so lame that I have to install Xcode to get git to work on the command line. I did’t have this problem last time I used git, but I just a few days ago upgraded to Sierra and I received this message while trying to clone a repository from GitHub.

git clone https://github.com/dstarr/intellij-community.gitxcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

Aaaand, lame. I don’t think I’ve ever read a really long license agreement via a terminal window, btw. That was a thing to behold.

That said, once I installed the tools, Xcode reqs, everything was peachy and worked fine.

Here’s to doing that in the shell:

xcode-select --install

Or if you already have Xcode

xcode-select --reset

Yep, I’m in Mac all the way now. Instead of griping about MSFT tools, I get to gripe about other tools 🙂 Stay tuned.
