Install Git-Xet

If you've already installed and logged in via our Install Guide, go ahead and skip to our hands-on example.

Already working with GitHub for your code? Try out XetData, a GitHub application that adds lightweight Xet support to existing GitHub repositories.

The Git-Xet client adds natural support for managing large files to Git. Once installed, XetHub will manage all files in the repository, storing all binary files and files over 256KB on XetHub servers to take advantage of our efficient storage structure. Once installed, all normal Git commands (e.g., clone, commit) will work as expected without any extra commands or storage setup.


Git-Xet requires Git v2.29 or above and a configured Git identity to avoid unexpected errors.

  1. Download and run the MacOS pkg installer.
