Installing hub on Windows

Hub is a command line tool that simplifies git commands when working with GitHub, and also adds some extra features.

It looks like almost nobody realizes that it can run on Windows. But it is really easy.
This is how I install it:
  1. Install Git for Windows
  2. Install Ruby with RubyInstaller
  3. Add ruby\bin\ to your system PATH variable
  4. Download hub standalone (you must save it as "hub", not "standalone") into your git\bin\ folder
Now you are able use hub command from Git Bash shell!
