Explains how to install Arcanist on Windows.
Arcanist runs on Windows, either in cmd.exe or the Git Bash environments. However, it will take a little effort to get working. This document explains what you need to do in order to get it running.
You need to install:
You can set environmental variables somewhere in the Advanced tab of the System control panel.
Now you should be able to run arc normally (either from cmd.exe or Git Bash) and it should work more-or-less properly.
Some arc workflows prompt you to edit large blocks of text using a text editor. You can configure various programs for this purpose, depending on which text editor you prefer. Some editors that will work are:
Other editors may also work, but they must have a blocking edit mode.
To configure an editor, either set the EDITOR environmental variable to point at it, or run:
$ arc set-config editor "\"C:\path\to\some\editor.exe\""
Specifically, you can use this command for Notepad++ (adjusting the path for your machine):
$ arc set-config editor "\"C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe\" -multiInst -nosession"
And this command for Vim (you may need to adjust the path):
$ arc set-config editor "\"C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\share\vim\vim73\vim.exe\""
And this for GitPad (you may need to adjust the path):
$ arc set-config editor "\"C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\GitPad\GitPad.exe\""
And this for Sublime Text (you may need to adjust the path):
$ arc set-config editor "\"C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 2\sublime_text.exe\" -w"
While multiple versions of PHP should work, you can follow these specific instructions if you're having trouble.
