Find much more information to the github repository of the project!


Cloning a repository

git tfs clone http://tfs:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection $/some_project
(wait for git-tfs to pull your history)


git tfs quick-clone http://tfs:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection $/some_project

(cd some_project and hack away, using only git, until you need to share with TFS…)

git tfs checkin -m "Did stuff"


git tfs shelve A_SHELVESET_NAME

Other commands

git tfs help
