configuring the GIT account basically - with SSH and so on

Recommended Posts

hello dear phpfreaks and php-expert, hope you are fine and all goes well at your site.

 

i am just in the mid of  configuring the GIT account basically - with SSH and so on


well i just have started with ATOM and now i want to connect to GITHUB: i have found out that git-plus an support my needs and ideas  alot.


I have a or git-specific question, like where to find gitconfig, I find this site to be the most helpful. [ https://git-scm.com/docs/git-config#FILES ]

my tasks for the weekend: I would like to configure Atom to connect to my GitHub repositories. I have installed the git-plus package and went through the process of creating
an SSH key on my Win and adding my public key to my GitHub account. I am pretty new to this stuff so I am confused by what may simple issues for more experienced people. I’d appreciate some help!


Issue 1: Pointing git-plus to my local repositories

I have GitHub Desktop installed on my Windows-machine and it is connected to my repositories online.
git-plus has a setting for the “Git Path” but I’m really not sure where that is on my  Windows-machine.
Is it the folder for my local repositories (that are synced through GitHub Desktop) or something else?


Issue 2: Editing gitconfig

The git-plus instructions include this: Make sure your gitconfig file is configured. You must configure at least the user.email and user.name 2 variables.
I don’t have a clue where to find my gitconfig file.

Again, this is very very probably pretty obvious, just not to me. Please could someone point me to that?


btw: Found those pages:

It's likely the location of your git.exe.
