Easiest way to install git flow on Mac OS X

I’ve recently switched all of my git repositories to use something called git flow. Found this browsing around, and it’s a WAY simpler development process than what I’ve been doing. Basically, it rebases, merges, creates and deletes branches for you.

Download and install GCC:

Download and install Homebrew:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

Then install git flow:

brew install git-flow
