My recommendation: configure the shell prompt (add __git_ps1 to $PS1), this saves a ton of time and makes it much easier to understand what is going on. Especially recommended for beginners (but obviously not limited to).

Use fish shell and setup it to use the git prompt. Far better that bash + __git_ps1
