Is there a way to run git within Powershell?

I have a Windows 7 box with msysgit. I'd like to have a single shell to also run all my git commands as well as play around with Powershell scripting.


Yes, when you run the msysgit installer make sure you choose the option to install git to be able to run from the Windows command prompt.


This will add git to your PATH variable, which will make it available to PowerShell.
