Git [ɡɪt]: a version control system. Developers use version control systems to organize their projects, to update and change code and to store these modifications in a central repository. Others can contribute to that repository and download and upload changes.

Git is Open Source and a command-line tool, which means that it does not have its own user interface. You use it by entering short commands into the terminal/command-line.
